The Little Dolphins Swim Academy is conducted year round, usually with a 2 week break at the end of August-beginning of September & 1 week during the New Year’s holiday. We utilize a "perpetual enrollment system" in which students enroll, and automatically continue each month until we recieve a cancellation form (due by the 25th of the month prior to stopping). An exception is the Summer Blitz program that is only one week commitment at a time.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
- When can I register? At any time there is space in classes. Summer Blitz Classes can be registered beginning April 1.
- When am I charged my Tuition? As soon as you register. And then for all "monthly students" you are charged automatically on the first of the month. For Summer Blitz students you are billed tuition for each week when you register.
- What if I register in the middle of the month? We will prorate the month you register for and then bill your credit card on the first of each month. For example, you register in February 15 you will immediately be billed for one half of the month of February and your last month. As soon as you register, your class space is reserved for you to begin immediately.
- Why do you bill a Last Month Deposit (for all but Summer Blitz)? It provides each family flexible end dates, but provides the Academy time to plan class adjustments. If we did not have a deposit, on the first of each month we would never know who was going to attend the next month.
- What if I just want to enroll in one month of lessons? Each family is expected to commit to two months of swim lessons (6-8 classes) when registering. The process of learning swimming proficiency necessitates at least 8 classes to begin to adapt to the achieve significant strides. We think it unfair to a child to attend a few classes, get to know the teachers, the environment and then stop after 2-3 more classes.
- Why not have sessions? One of many reasons is that by conducting our program without new registration dates, you will never have to be concerned about losing your time slot and having to reschedule your family's weekly plan.
- How long does it take to complete a LEVEL in each step of LDSA? After the Baby/Toddler & Me Classes, each LEVEL requires 10 skills to be mastered. The average student will need 4-6 classes per skill. But each individual progresses at their own rate, and starts at their individual stage. Fear can require many classes to overcome before progress in mastering the 10 steps takes place. (The parent's patience in allowing their child to work through this is paramount to success.
