Sometimes it’s best to have a few things written down so that we both know what’s what, who should do what and what happens if stuff goes wrong. We do want what’s best for the safety of both parties, now and in the future.

Along the way we aim to be at every session but occasionally things go wrong that you can’t control and we will endeavour to provide another teacher for your session, or arrange a make up session if the problem is caused by SWC. Due to the short nature of the 8 week program, make up lessons will not be offered if you miss one for whatever reason or a problem arises due to third party outages.

We love to talk about swimming and what we have learned with other people, so we reserve the right to share information about sessions you have been involved in on digital media and traditional media platforms.

We are sure you understand how important it is as a small business that you pay for the program promptly. You agree to stick tight to the payment terms whereby all money is to be paid in advance. Although the language is simple, the intentions are serious and this contract is a legal document under exclusive jurisdiction of the State of Western Australia.
