Enrolment

Enrolment is on a per term basis, with fees paid in full before the commencement of term. Class placements are not guaranteed until payment is received in full. As our classes usually fill up quickly, and waiting lists are common, we recommend making payment for your classes sufficiently in advance.

New students

Prospective students are entitled to one free trial class. Students may then enrol to join the next term in full, or the current term provided that no more than 4 lessons of the current term have been conducted. New students joining a current term will be eligible for a proration of the current term’s fees (strictly for new joiners only).

Registration Fees

A registration fee of $50 is payable per student to cover enrolment-related admin and processing. Upon receipt of the registration fee, students will receive a complementary Welcome Kit consisting of The Swim Lab swim cap, towel and drawstring bag. Contents of the Welcome Kit may vary over time, or with stock availability.

Term Fees

Fees are per term of 12 lessons, and apply only to the lesson and usage of the facility during the lesson. Any external costs for usage of the facility outside of lesson times, or for participating in additional events such as competitions, are to be borne by the student separately.

Price per 12-lesson term: $420 (weekdays); $450 (weekends)

  • One lesson per week

  • 50 mins per lesson (45 mins for toddlers)

Term and registration fees paid are non-refundable and non-transferable. Payment can be made via PayNow or bank transfer.

Withdrawals

Withdrawals may only take place at the end of the term. We are strictly unable to provide refunds for early withdrawals.

Any credit balance at the end of the term will be refunded to you at the end of the term, upon confirmation of your child’s withdrawal.

Public Holidays

Classes are not conducted on public holidays. For public holidays that fall on a Sunday, classes will not be conducted on both the Sunday, and the Monday (public holiday in-lieu).

Should there be fewer than 12 lessons in the term due to public holidays, term fees will be prorated according to the number of lessons in the term.

Wet Weather & MC credit

A credit amount equal to the value of the lesson will be applied to your next term’s fees, in the event of:
