What we need from you:

  • Please show up 10 minutes before lesson to get dressed and be ready to start on time.
  • Parents should watch from the top deck.
  • You must pay in full before the start of the first lesson.
  • No Refunds
  • You must wear appropriate swimwear- swim diapers (if child is not potty trained).
  • Bring: Towel, goggles (if you have some), positive attitude!
  • Please make sure that your child uses the restroom and showers before entering the pool.
  • The most important role of a parent or guardian during swimming lessons is to be positive and patient with your swimmer's success. There is no set pace for your child's swimming improvement.
  • You must be released from medical care.

What you receive from us:

  • Parent feedback
  • Certificate of Completion


  • If you must withdraw from a class after the start of a session, a credit or refund will only be given with written confirmation of a medical condition that prohibits participation in the class.
  • Observing Lessons: In order to provide the best learning environment we suggest that family members observe swim lessons from the observation deck located off the upper level. This allows for less distraction for students and provides a more comfortable environment for spectators. If you find your child continually trying to interact with you during their class, we encourage you to move out of the immediate area so that their attention remains focused on their instructor.
  • Make-up Policies: No make-up classes are offered for lessons missed by participants If for some reason we must cancel a class, every effort is made to offer a makeup.
  • Inclement Weather Policy: Rehab for Life facilities will maintain normal operating hours unless directed otherwise safety measures are needed.. All our class/activity schedules will coincide with Vanderburgh County Schools. When school is cancelled, all daytime classes are cancelled, and a decision regarding evening classes (those after 5 p.m.) will be made by 3 p.m. Please call the front desk to find out about evening classes. All attempts will be made to make up missed classes, but there may not be enough time to do so.
