TERMS & CONDITIONS
Please be reminded that by registering you are agreeing to the following conditions:
Lessons in Rockpool or Ocean. Lessons are run in ocean pools and the ocean. They are natural, unheated, outdoors and subject to weather and surf conditions. Swimming in a rockpool or ocean can be inherently dangerous. I acknowledge that I am exposed to certain risks during swimming in a rockpool or ocean including but not limited to physical exertion, body contact and surf, ocean wildlife, sea, water and weather conditions. I acknowledge that accidents can and often do happen which may result in me being injured or even killed, or my property being damaged. I have voluntarily read and understood this warning and accept and assume the inherent risks in participating.
Weather and surf conditions. In the event of thunderstorms of huge surf, lessons may need to be cancelled and rescheduled.
Water quality. Especially after periods of heavy rain, the rockpools can be polluted. You can check the status of the water quality at https://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/beachapp/OceanBulletin.aspx?NoMobile. We will only swim if the indicators are green. Even when the indicators are green, it can sometimes happen that upon visual inspection at the start of the swim session the rockpool looks dirty. If this is the case and you don’t feel comfortable to swim, we can reschedule the session.
Missed lesson and make-up policy. When booking an ocean swim course, private lesson or group swim, you book for the dates stated on your invoice. No make-up sessions are allowed and there are no refunds or credits for any missed lessons except in the event of serious injury. A proof from your doctor will be required.
For the Ocean Swim Ready program, there is a NO MAKEUP policy for missed lessons, illness or injury. You are participating in a progressive eight week course and we cannot arrange make ups
Payment and cancellation policy. To confirm your booking, payment is required within 3 working days. Note that your space is not secured unless full payment is received. Cancellations with less than 24 hour notice prior to the course commencement will result in forfeiting full fees.
NO REFUND. There is a NO REFUND policy in place. In the event the session or course is cancelled and we are not able to provide you with a suitable alternative for you, we will happily arrange a refund or credit
Safety and general rules. You are responsible for your own safety, actions and behaviour in the rockpool or ocean.
Physician’s approval. Before participation, participants are advised to visit their doctor for a physician’s approval.
Waiver & Indemnity. I declare myself physically and mentally sound and suffering from no condition, impairment, disease, infirmity, or other illness that would prevent my participation in swimming sessions offered by Personal Swimming. I acknowledge I have been informed of the need for a physician’s approval for my participation in an exercise/fitness activity. I recognise it is my sole responsibility to obtain an examination by a physician prior to involvement in any exercise program. I acknowledge I have either had a physical examination and been given my physician’s permission to participate, or if I have chosen not to obtain a physician’s permission prior to beginning this exercise program, I acknowledge I am doing so at my own risk.
If there arises any physiological discomfort before, during, or after any of the programs offered by Marleen Veldhuis, please communicate this with Marleen Veldhuis immediately.
