If your child misses any lessons or practices due to illness, vacation, other commitments, etc. we do not offer any make-ups.

  • All lessons are Instructor led, no parents will be in the water or allowed inside the glass area of the Rec Center warm water pool
  • All lessons and Prep Squad practices are held at the Rochester Recreation Center warm water pool (year round)
  • During the Summer months we do utilize the outdoor pools

Lesson Cancellation or Changes:  ALL COMMUNICATION WILL OCCUR THROUGH THE RAINOUT LINE APP - you can download on your phone, visit the website or call the phone number for any updates.  BE SURE TO REGISTER TO RECEIVE NOTIFICATIONS VIA EMAIL OR TEXT.  All notifications will also be posted on our Facebook page as well. This is posted in multiple places throughout our website, as well as in the registration platform.


Pool accidents do occur at times and this is our only way of communicating those to you. You will NOT receive emails from me when any cancellations occur!!  Also, for your reference - our cancellation policy:  

Orcas cancelled swim lessons, is there a make-up lesson that is offered?  We do our best to offer a make-up lesson during the session in which the lesson was canceled, however this is not a guarantee. In some cases we may offer an in-house credit if multiple lessons have been cancelled, however again this is not a guarantee.  

Be certain to follow our locker room policy:  All persons must use the locker rooms for changing, etc.  There are showers available in all locker rooms.  Children ages 5 and older need to use appropriate locker rooms.  There is no deck changing (changing into or out of a swimsuit on deck) allowed.  If you need to utilize a family locker room, please ask one of our on-deck managers.

Please reference our Swim Lesson FAQ's for more information regarding if your child needs to miss lessons, how you will know if your child gets moved up a level, our refund policy, etc.   https://www.teamunify.com/team/mnrsco/page/swim-lessons---main-page1/lessons-faqs
