Do you offer courses?

Yes, check our Calendar for upcoming courses

What is your cancellation policy for courses?

WWK Membership is required for ALL WWK Programs and is therefore INCLUDED in the lessons price.  The membership portion of the lesson price is not refunded upon cancellation by the participant.

Our courses require us to book pool time and qualified instructors, so short notice cancellations leave us with those expenses.  Therefore there will be NO REFUND for any cancellation by the participant one week or less from the lesson start.

WWK reserves the right to cancel lessons if under subscribed, or decline registrations if over subscribed.  Full refunds or credit towards another course will be available in the event of course cancellation by WWK.
