- Annual Membership – Signing up for an Annual Membership means you are committing yourself to a signed contract for the Annual Season (see Membership Seasons below). Signing up for a membership means you are obligated to pay the full cost of tuition whether you are paying in full or splitting up your tuition into monthly payments.
- Membership Seasons – Annual Season (11-months, August – June)
- Cancellation Policy:
Annual Members have a 2-week window at the beginning of their season enrollment to cancel their membership with no cancellation fee. If you choose to cancel your membership after the 2-week window due to reasons other than serious injury, disease, or death in the family, you will be charged a $60 cancellation fee per member.
- If paying monthly, we require you to have an active credit card on file. To do this, every member paying monthly tuition is required to keep an active credit card on file. A credit card is not required if your tuition is paid in full upon sign-up.
- Monthly payments are processed automatically on the 1st of each month. This authorization is only valid for the duration of the season in which you are enrolled.
- We do not provide refunds unless a student needs to suddenly cancel due to reasons concerning serious injury, disease, or death in the family. No financial credit is given for missed classes. No exceptions are made. If a student misses a class, he/she is welcome to make up the missed class by taking an alternative class within the same age and difficulty level. Or in the case of Drop-In students, you can reschedule your class for a future date.
Memberships follow an 11-month season that runs from August – June. By enrolling, members are committing themselves (or their child) for the entirety of the season.
