Enrolment Forms: All Students must have a completed and signed enrolment form or submitted an enrolment form online to participate in swimming lessons at the Paragon Swim Centre. If any changes occur then a new form will need to be completed. Please Note: One Form Per Student
Registrations: Registrations can be made at any time of the term. When registering a student into a class a $25.00 Registration Fee is due. The student is then secured into the same day, time and level each week for the term and for every consecutive term thereafter, even when the student progresses to a new level or the student wishes to changes days and/or times. The Registration Fee stays with the student until they leave lessons. The Registration Fee is Fully Refundable**. The Registration Fee is separate from Swimming Lesson Term Fees and will not be deducted from them. There are no family discounts on registration fees. Registration fees will be VOID and lessons CANCELLED if the student has not attended for two consecutive weeks without communication to the centre. Upon returning to the centre a new registration fee will be charged. **Registration Fee Refund To obtain a refund a written request must be given to the centre prior to the end of the current term, stating that the student will not be returning in the following term, the fee will need to be paid if the student returns to lessons. Registration Fee Hold-Over To Hold Over a registration fee to a future term a written request must be given to the centre prior to the end of the current term. Registration fees will be held but not the place in the class. The student will need to re-book into lessons when they decide to return. Payments All Lessons Must Be Paid For! Swimming lessons run during Public School Terms in blocks, usually ten weeks. Lessons are not booked on a casual basis.
If paying by instalments then all lessons must be paid for in the current term, whether or not the Student attends all lessons. If a student joins the lessons during the term the fees will be adjusted accordingly.
UpFront Payments To claim the discounted price the lessons must be paid in full by the second week of lessons. Failure to pay in full by the second week will resort in the lessons being charged at the standard (higher) rate.
Instalment Payments Payments must be paid weekly, if a student is absent from a lesson that lesson is then required to be paid for the next time the student attends lessons.

Family Discounts Family Discounts applies for three or more students from the same family i.e. Siblings or Step-Siblings or Parent & Children. The discount price is put over the whole family.
If one member discontinues lessons this reduces the number in the family, therefore changing the family discount. The discounted price is on the family member that has discontinued lessons.
Missed Lessons If students are absent from a lesson the centre must be notified prior to the commencement of that lesson.
Upon Notification a reference number will be allocated to the student(s), this will allow the student(s) to organise a make-up lesson. Please Note: Reference Numbers have an expiry date. There are no credits or refunds for any classes missed.
Arranging Make Up Lessons Make Up Lessons must be taken in the current term, transferring make ups to the following term will only be arranged if the student is fully paid for in the following term.

Please Note: Once changed into a Family Pass or Hydrocise Double Pass it can not be converted into anything else. Refunds or Credits will not be given for missed lessons, Family Passes or Hydrocise Double Passes.
