Make-Up Options

La Petite Baleen’s Make-Up Policy

All enrolled swim students receive two free make-up lessons per season for each class enrollment. No need to miss a class to redeem.  These free seasonal make-ups can also be used as an extra drop-in lesson.

Swimmers may redeem their free seasonal make-up swim classes by selecting an open class from our schedule online. It’s important to note that unused free make-ups remaining on your account will expire. Make-ups do not have any cash value, will not accumulate or roll over if unused, cannot be transferred to other families, and becomes void if dropping from enrollment. Make-ups may be booked up to seven days in advance and may not be rescheduled.

Swim Seasons are:

September 1 – November 30, December 1 – February 28, March 1 – May 31, and June 1 – August 31.


Benefits of Make-Up Swim Classes

Our make-up options allow you to drop into any of our four locations to join a scheduled swim class with an opening. Make-up swim classes are beneficial for many reasons, including:

  • Leads Swimmers Towards Success – We give you the opportunity to improve your swimming even if you miss a class. Every swim class is unique and teaches swimmers different things. A make-up class may unlock challenging moves or help you get over the hump of going underwater.
  • Offers Peace of Mind – We understand you may need to miss a class due to sickness or a scheduling conflict. Our make-up program lets you feel like a part of our swimming family that will accommodate your special circumstances. We want you to feel comfortable and take the stress out of worrying about losing valuable swim time.
  • Gives You the Opportunity to Try a New Teacher – We know you probably love your swim instructor, but it’s a great idea to try out other teachers to check out their techniques. A different viewpoint can help push you to another level in swim lessons. All our teachers are highly trained and cutting-edge in their swimming craft.
