Here is some of the information you need to know to have an enjoyable stay at Waterhole, please read carefully

A full copy of Waterhole policies is available in our yellow information booklet "Welcome to Our World of Swimming"


All payments in the learn to swim and advanced swimming section are by the term with a non-refundable deposit being paid to secure your space at the end of the preceding term or a direct debit agreement completed. Non-payment of a deposit means your space is not secure and may be given to another client. If after paying your deposit prior to that new term starting you then decide not to continue your deposit is forfeit

Balance of payment is due the first week of each term, once or twice weekly. You may increase or decrease the number of lessons you attend weekly at the end of any term. If you are wanting to increase during a term then you will need to pay the part term price for the remainder of the term. You may attend lessons for as long as you wish. Payments can be spread over the term by completing a direct debit contract.

There are 2 payment options.

Option 1 includes make up lessons for all pre advised absences for paid members and gives flexibility to change days if needed.

Option 2 has no make ups or changes available (unless a client is moving levels)

Catch up lessons for Public Holidays or pool closures are available on both options,

Clients commencing after the end of week 4 of the term pay for the balance of the term at the non discounted rate, this rate does not include a make-up option.

  • All family members enrolled payments are to be processed together.
