Policies and Procedures

Registration for Programs

It is easiest to register for East Lyme Aquatic & Fitness Center (ELAFC) online with a credit card or in person at the front desk.  You can be wait-listed for a program, but no one is approved for a class without payment.  We accept cash, check, credit, and debit cards (payable to ELBOE Spec Acct-Pool).  We do accept mail-in registrations however there is no guarantee that a class will have spots available by the time we receive the payment.   Member rates for programs are for full year members of the ELAFC.


-Low Enrollment/Refund Policy

All programs at the ELAFC have a minimum number of enrollees needed for the course to run.  If this minimum is not met, then the class will be canceled.  For this reason, it is very important to register for a program at least one week prior to the start date.  If a program is under-enrolled, the participants will be moved to a different day/time that may be available  or will be offered the class at a private or semi-private lesson rate.  If we cannot meet your needs with one of these options your account will be credited the remaining balance.


-Cancellation Policy

During all seasons, inclement weather may dictate sudden changes in the operation of the ELAFC.  These changes may include cancellation of scheduled activities as well as closure of the entire facility.  Please check the website for the most recent closing updates, or the Facebook page, or call 860-691-4681.  We provide make-ups for classes we cancel.  No refunds or make-up classes for personal absences under any circumstances.
