WEST Swim Lessons Program Policies


Please read the following policies carefully to familiarize yourself with our program.



Please register using our online registration system, in person, or over the phone. Late registrations will be accepted in-person on an individual basis depending on space and instructor availability.

Scholarships are available to those who qualify and the criteria is based on Everett School District’s Free & Reduced School Lunch Program.

Refund & Make-Up Policy

No refunds will be issued. We do not offer make-up classes. As with any other children’s activity, you are responsible to attend the days you signed up for. We do not do offer make-up classes because we run our lesson sessions back-to-back and there is no time for additional classes.


Cancelation Policy

If you cancel your class, you will NOT receive a refund. You will receive a WEST Credit which can then be applied the next time you register. We must receive notice 3 business days prior to the start of the session.


Illness Policy

Please see reopening guidelines regarding Illness policies (Click Here). If your child is sick and misses two (2) consecutive classes, a credit will be issued when a doctor’s note is presented. The note must include the dates that the child was not allowed to be in class. No credit will be issued without a note from the doctor. 


Credit Policy

WEST Credits will be issued for prolonged illness (see illness policy) and pool closures only. Credits will NOT be issued for scheduling conflicts with other activities or vacations. Credits may be applied toward future swim lessons, both semi-private and private. 


Parents On-Deck

Parents and/or guardians must be present at every lesson.  Your children and their behavior are your responsibility while they are in the locker rooms and on deck. Separating the child from the parents allows the swimmer to form a bond with the instructor, therefore creating a more effective learning atmosphere. We do allow parents to view from the bench on-deck, however we ask that you refrain from interacting with your child during the lesson.


Locker Rooms/Changing Stalls

Children over the age of 6 and their parents must use their gender appropriate locker room to ensure the comfort and safety of all our patrons.  Please see reopening guidelines regarding lockeroom policies (Click Here)
