Make-ups & Refunds  

  • We do not offer makes-ups for weather related cancellations, pool closures or absences.  Our fee structure reflects this policy. However, we will offer a make-up if the instructor cancels the class for a personal reason.   
  • Once you have signed up for a class no refunds or credits will be offered. 

Swim Diapers 

  • All Ripples swimmers are required to wear two layers of protection: 
  • Inner Layer:  Disposable Swim Diaper 
  • REQUIRED Outer Layer:  the HAPPY KNAPPY Reusable Swim Diaper  ***** 

Purchase a swim diaper

  • The Happy Knappy diaper will protect the integrity of the pool water by protecting against future “code browns”.  The diaper is meant to be a very tight fit around the waist and legs.  It should not be roomy – no room for escape.   

Club Usage  

  • Members of the Club are welcome to use the facility, however, it is best not to go swimming prior to the start of your class, so your child will get the most out of their class.  Currently Family Swim is by reservation only.  Reservations are available to book via the Weymouth Club App.  
  • Non-members are allowed one adult and child to be in the water for the duration of your class.
