COVID-19 RESPONSE

PRIVATE LESSONS AVAILABLE FOR VACCINATED STUDENTS

GROUP CLASSES ARE CURRENTLY SUSPENDED

At Timpany Center we have always prioritized the safety and well-being of students, guardians, staff, and the community. To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 we have suspended group classes until social distancing recommendations are relaxed, and we are confident that patrons and instructors will be safe.

The Timpany Center offers fun, effective, and affordable swim lessons for participants of all ages and skill levels. Most instructors are educated in the field of kinesiology and have studied subjects such as adapted physical activity, motor development, motor learning and biomechanics. The Timpany Center’s pool is the perfect place for swim lessons! Our indoor pool is maintained at 92°F to offer a comfortable water setting throughout the entire year. Additionally, our pool offers a zero-depth entry (steps and a ramp) with the depth ranging from 2 to 8 feet.


Private swim lessons are customized to you or your child's abilities and goals!

Program Policies

Make-Up Policy

If a lesson is canceled by Timpany Center (instructor illness, facility closure, etc.), a credit or make up lesson will be offered.

If a student misses a class due to medical reasons, a credit will be issued or a make up lesson will be scheduled after receipt of proper documentation. Only one credit per session. 

If a student misses a class due to vacation or other scheduling conflict, credits or refunds are not offered

CLASS REFUND POLICY

All refund requests must be submitted in writing to the Timpany Center. Full refunds (minus a $25.00 processing fee) will be issued if the request is postmarked at least 7 business days in advance. If payment was received via check, there is a 2 week waiting period before the original check is processed and mailed. Credit card refunds will be credited back to the original card account within 3 weeks of processing refund request. Requests after the 7 day period must be submitted and will be handled on an individual basis.

Returned Checks & Declined Credit Cards

If a check is returned, or a credit card is declined, Timpany Center management will contact the individual on the account and notify them about the transaction. There will be a $25 processing fee for ALL returned checks and declined credit cards additional to the already due amount.  If a credit card is declined, or a check returned two consecutive sessions the Timpany Center management will ask that the session be paid with cash only.

Open or “Free” Swim Before/ After Class

Please note that swim lesson participants are not permitted to enter/remain in the water before or after their swim lesson. A child may visit the pool during OPEN SWIM hours but must follow all age requirement rules and pay proper entry fees.  These fees are not included within the swim lesson registration cost. Inquire at the front desk about obtaining a drop-in pass, monthly pass, or monthly family membership if you or your child is interested in swimming during OPEN SWIM times.  We offer discounts on drop-ins for swim lesson students.

Proper Swim Gear

All Children under the age of 4 or children/adults who have known (or the possibility of) fecal incontinence, must use an approved swim diaper/retainer before entering the pool. Approved diapers/retainers for most ages can be purchased at the Timpany Center.  If you wish to purchase this item outside of the Timpany Center, please confirm with staff that you are purchasing an approved style.  Instructors and/or deck coordinators will confirm with parents/guardians/attendants, of participants who fall in the above categories, that the proper swim diaper is being used.  Goggles are not required; however, they are strongly recommended. Girls with hair medium or long hair must wear their hair pulled back.

Designated Parent Seating Area

To insure the quality of your child’s class, we ask parents/guardians to please remain in a designated area during all classes.  Approved areas include: the parent area near the patio doors on the pool deck, the blue benches placed around the pool deck, or the tables placed in the pool/front lobby area.  Please avoid interrupting the class while it is in session. If you have any questions, please wait until the end of class to approach the instructor. Violation of this policy may result in two warnings, and dismissal from the pool area.  Parents must remain on site during the entire lesson.

Designated Student Waiting Area

Students are NOT allowed in the water without their instructor at anytime. Instructors will meet their students at the top of the steps of the pool area. Please be sure that students are on time and remain with your child until the instructor arrives to greet the children in their class.
