STATEMENT OF LIABILITY AND PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITY: Parents, you and your children's safety are your responsibility totally until the instructor takes your child out of your hands and into the water for their scheduled lesson. There is no lifeguard on duty. Neither I nor the pool owners assume responsibility for you, your children, or visitors that may be with you either in the pool area, parking lot, or on the way to or from lessons.

Do not leave children unattended for any reason. Children are not allowed to roam around the pool area. Parents must accompany and supervise their children in the bathroom. You must assume responsibility in explaining all rules and regulations of the pool facilities to any visitors or babysitters. TFSS reserves the rights to refuse and/or terminate service to any client who does not abide by TFSS Policies and Procedures.

WHAT IS THE COST OF LESSONS AND HOW DO I PAY? Registration is a one-time non-refundable registration fee of $30, ( for siblings registered at the same time, it will be $30) is payable to your instructor at the time of registration. A deposit of $200 is due before your child begins lessons. The remaining $400 balance can be paid at anytime before your child starts lessons or weekly payments of $80 can be made. Once the 6 weeks lessons are over and your child has mastered Survival Skills, we highly recommend lessons once a week for 15 min to sharpen, maintain and advance in skills. The cost for once a week maintenance lessons is $25.
WHAT IF WE ARE LATE OR MISS A LESSON? Swimming lessons are 15 min in length, four days a week Monday through Thursday. Consistency is so important and makes our program so effective. Steady attendance will increase your child's rate of progress
