Our Calendar

Classes and registrations are ongoing at Dolphin Swim Club, so we are no longer tied to sessions. Upon joining, you have committed to at least two full calendar months of lessons. Classes are 30 minute long, once a week. To withdraw from the program, a 30-day written notice must be given.

Registration Policy

Dolphin’s classes are ongoing, allowing students to start at will. Registration is also ongoing, but current students get priority placement. Customers will be automatically and continually registered until a 30-DAY WRITTEN NOTICE from the customer is received.


We aim to keep you informed! Please check signs posted in our lobby area, the televisions screens, our website, Facebook, and the monthly e-newsletters sent directly to your inbox for all important announcements.


Occasionally, bad weather or poor conditions (low temperature, poor chemical balance, etc.) may warrant cancellation of classes. A free make-up voucher will be issued redeemable for one year past the issue date and scheduled up to a week in advance.

Class Size

All of our classes - except for Baby Swim classes - have four or fewer students per instructor. Dolphin Swim Club reserves the right to cancel classes with only one  or two students registered.

Water Gear

Dolphin provides all equipment for the classes, including goggles. Students need only bring a swimsuit and towel.


It is mandatory that all children not fully potty-trained must comply with our double-diaper policy. One must be a cloth, reusable, plastic-lined Dolphin Swim Club-approved diaper.


Students displaying symptoms of fever, diarrhea, or any other contagious illness are prohibited from participating in any Dolphin Swim Club activities.

Dropping A Class

There are no prorated refunds or credits for missed or dropped classes. Credit for medical situations supported in a written acknowledgement from a licensed medical practitioner will be extended from the DATE WE RECEIVE them. Retroactive requests for medical credit will not be granted.

Auto Pay

All payments are perpetual by direct debit. This ensures the swimmer will not lose his or her spot. This payment comes out once a month using a debit card or credit card. You may still change your class time, if needed. If you wish to take a break from lessons, a 30-DAY WRITTEN NOTICE must be received. These forms are available at the front desk. Lessons will cease 30 days from when we receive the written request.

Who is the responsible person?

You, the parent, are. Take care to first enter in your information, or the information of the person you want in control of the account, into the “Create responsible person for new family” form under Personal Details. You will be prompted to enter in your child’s information on the next screen.

How do I know how to choose the right class?

The two key factors in choosing a class that will work well for your student are:
Level: Read through our level descriptions on our website. Pick the one the best matches your student’s current comfort level and experience but still has new skills your child needs to learn. When trying to decide between two levels, always pick the lower. It is better to have one lesson where your child excels than to have a too difficult class that overwhelms your child and makes him/her nervous to come back. Our teachers will always let you know right away if there is a more appropriate level for your student. Please also feel free to call us for our advice on which level to choose.
Age: We truly teach to all ages and abilities, which means we have Starfish classes with new two year-olds and Starfish classes with twelve year-olds. To make every child comfortable and for the best learning environment, it is extremely important to check the average age of students in the class. The Parent Portal will NOT automatically narrow your selection based on your student’s age. We suggest choosing a class where the average age is within one year of your child’s age. Ages are listed with years and months; for example, a three and a half year-old’s age is listed as 3:6.

What if I cannot find a class that fits my schedule?

Call us. We are here to help. We will look at the schedule with you to find a solution.

I cannot start right away. Can I book a class in advance?

Unfortunately, no. To uphold our open enrollment policy that lets your student start and move up to the next level at any time, you must choose the first available class. For example, if you are online on a Thursday and choosing a Friday class, it will start the next day. If you need to delay your enrollment, you must log in again when you are ready to enroll. However, please note availability changes daily, and we cannot guarantee that the same class will still be open.
