MAKEUPS:

All make ups will be in dryland only on the third Saturday of the month from 9-10AM.

Water time cannot be made up as it wil crowd classes for the regular attendees. Space is too precious at the pools. Sorry.

 

REGISTRATION and PAYMENTS:

Registrations are all done online via the www.diveseattle.com website. All payments are made at the time of registration (first month is due) and the subsequent month (for the second half of the quarter).  Divers may not drop during a session and are required to pay for the Quarter whether they dive or not as they are taking a space in the session and the program is still required to pay the coaches and pool bills whether your child attends the classes will be billed on your credit card on file.

 

QUARTER PAYMENT SCHEDULE:

Quarter I – Open registration to September 9th  and October 1st date for second half payment

Quarter III- Registration January 1st and February 1st for second half payment.

Quarter IV – Registration March 1st and April 1st for second half payment

Quarter V- Registration April 20th and June 1st for second half payment

 

ADMIN FEE:

Each Quarter a $45 admin fee is charged in order to offset our Diver of the Month awards, ribbons for the meets and goody bags, equipment and other events. There will still be a nominal charge for the meet to offset pool time as meets and events run longer than our normal practices and at $100 per hour for the pool fees, the admin fees allow us to offer these EXTRA events. There may still be  additional coaching and travel fees for meets in Beaverton or other special events. FYI

 

SCHEDULE CHANGES for QUARTER I:

Due to high school dive meets at Juanita that bump out our team diving, sometimes we have to move to Bellevue pool for training.  These changes are for our high school divers to have diving meets so they are for a good cause :). No changes at Bellevue or other weekday schedules. Saturday Dryland and diving will be TBD on these  days. CHANGES will result in classes held in Bellevue instead of Juanita as follows:

CHANGES Saturday date Juanita Bellevue Pool
September 15
