Ground Rules

PRIOR TO THE FIRST LESSON

In order that I prepare properly for our first session, please provide the swimmer’s full name, date of birth, team affiliation and best yard times for every event swam. Also provide a cell phone numbers for
EMERGENCY communication; pool closures, illness or lightening or snow outages.

TUITION & POOL LOCATIONS

The first lesson is an hour assessment of the swimmers current skills and is not part of any packages. The assessment charge is the standard single hour fee of $175. See tuition schedule here.

After this session you can decide if you would like to continue on a single lesson by lesson basis or choose to book in either  3  or 5 session packages. Half hour lessons are reserved exclusively for long time students (3 years plus) that have developed and practiced the system of learning, practicing and implementing skills, techniques and strategies in racing. In short, they can benefit from quick tune-up sessions.

I teach out of two pools during the summer months. The location of your lessons will be either at the JCC in Bridgewater or the Round Top Community Pool in Warren: there is a color code on the schedule pages to reflect which pool.

VERIFICATION

Your final verification is your name listed at the appointed time and date within the online schedule (not an email). The online schedule is how run my day. I update the website every few days or so, please be patient. If it’s a last minute lesson we will communicate through texts !

I will make mistakes, but if we flag them there should be no last minute issues.

CANCELLATIONS & EMERGENCIES

If illness or another critical issues arise – no worries. Life happens and we adjust ! Simply Text me the reason.

Booking lessons months in advance then telling me the night before you need to cancel is troublesome. It happens far to often and it shows lack of respect to myself and other swimmers who desire to engage. That being said please text if an emergency arises as I will do the same if/when there is in-climate weather, pool closures, etc..

I wait only 10 minutes on deck for clients.

No Shows will be charged or eliminated from the roster going forward.

Communication

My Cellular Number : 908-581-0275.  If you call me, you will be disappointed as I never answer it. NEVER.
