Attempted contact will be made via the contact details the member has provided at time of sign up. It is the responsibility of the member to ensure we have the correct details on file.

It is the responsibility of the member to cancel their membership. Non-attendance does not warrant a refund or cancellation.

All refund or credit applications must be received prior to the completion of the enrolled term and sent in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Credits will not be granted for any other reason including absences due to holidays, religious reasons, general illness, or for absences for less than three weeks (Make-up lessons are offered as an alternative subject to our Make Up Policy).
Make Up Policy
Make up lessons are only available for missed classes. The Royal Life Saving Aquatic Academy must be advised that a child/swimmer will be away prior to their lesson time. This can be done via our website at http://aquaticacademy.com.au/members/notify-absence/.
A total of one (1) make up lesson is available per student, per four (4) weekly payment cycle. Make ups must be used within four (4) weeks of the date of the missed class.
Make ups can be booked in advance at any time. Once a make up lesson has been booked, it cannot be changed. Make ups are available for current RLSAA members holding a paid position in our program.
All patrons must shower prior to entering the pool. This enables us to maintain excellent water quality for all patrons to enjoy. Showers are located on pool deck of both pools and also in the change room facilities.
Duty of Care
The Swimming Instructor’s “Duty of Care” begins when your child is placed in their lesson and ceases at the end of their lesson. Children must not be left without supervision at any time during your visit to the Royal Life Saving Aquatic Academy. Children and all other patrons are not permitted to enter the pools unless they are participating in a swimming lesson. You must ensure that you collect your child from their lesson on time. Whilst we know that children are exuberant and often very excited about their swimming lessons, we ask that they stay within arms’ reach whilst moving around the Royal Life Saving Aquatic Academy and that you do not allow them to run during your visit.

If the facility was to be subject to an emergency evacuation, please do not panic and follow the directions of staff. It is important that when moving through the facility during an emergency that you do not run. Please listen to the instruction that is offered by the trained staff and follow it. Your child will remain in the care of their Instructor whilst moving to the assembly area. We ask that you meet their class at the assembly area. Please do not take your child without the permission of staff until all participants have been accounted for.
