How often do we swim? 

KC Arctic Sharks have practice 4 days per week during Non-Covid times (typically Mon-Thursday with some Saturday Clinics).  Ideally, our swimmers attend at least twice per week, depending on their other activities, but there is no minimum or maximum. The more you swim, the better you get. The better you get, the more fit you get! Until younger children are offered a vaccine against Covid, practices will be relegated to 2 days a week; either Monday and Wednesday OR Tuesday and Thursday.

KC Swim Academy Mission Statement

To teach swimming as a healthy, relaxing, life activity, and to introduce the sport of swimming to all ages by building a foundation of good stroke technique. To develop strength, endurance, coordination, discipline, time management and teamwork skills through a rigorous, age appropriate, exercise program.


Billing and Cancellation Policy

PLEASE READ! By registering your swimmer for Arctic Sharks you acknowledge that you read and understand the Billing and Cancellation Policy.


"...you must notify us in writing by email to  [email protected] on or before the 15th of each month to avoid being billed again on the 1st of the month. Our swim cycle runs about two weeks behind the billing cycle. When you sign up in September, you are paying for the month running Sept 16 - Oct 15. 


This example might illustrate how it works:


You join Artic Sharks Sept when we start. First practice is Sept 20. You send written notice on Dec 15 that your swimmer is taking a break. We won't bill you again but remember your swimmer can still swim until Jan 15 because you paid for Dec 16 - Jan 15 on December 1. 


Key dates in the cycle:


15th of month, or earlier,  by written notice to withdraw or take a break and stop billing.

if no notice:

1st of month - Monthly fee is auto-debited from your account, which pays for:

15th or 16th of month begins swimming cycle through 16th or 17th of following month ends your swimmer's participation.


Just so everyone understands: If you give timely written notice of withdrawal, your swimmer can still swim about four more weeks, 15th -15th) because you already paid for it. If your notice is on the 16th or later, you will be billed and your swimmer can swim 6 more weeks. No, we cannot make any exceptions. We don't want to charge anyone for any months that they are not swimming but the very lenient cancellation policy (written notice no later than the 15th of the month) requires you to keep the 15th in mind and remember that your monthly tuition on the 1st actually pays for the middle of the month until the middle of the next month.
