Safety Measures

Safety Measures

For your health and safety, we are limiting swim lessons to one-on-one and small groups at this time. This allows us to provide you the best experience possible, while still following our state and local guidelines. We will continue to look at adding more diverse swim lessons class opportunities as regulations continue to adjust and update. Additionally, CA swim instructors will wear a protective swim mask for both indoor and outdoor lessons.*

*Subject to change as state and county recommendations are updated.

Make-up, Cancellation and Refund Policy

Makeup classes are held the week following each session in case of a student’s illness or a facility closing. A $10 fee will be assessed if a student cancels three days or less before the start of a group, individual, clinic or prep class. To reschedule a personal swim training session, students must notify the instructor at least 24 hours beforehand.

Online Registration Troubleshooting

Creating a login requires a member number, zip code, date of birth

  • Make sure you enter your membership number in the 99999.01 format.
  • If you cannot create an account using your information, something is most likely incorrect in our system, i.e. wrong year on the date of birth. Please contact Membership Services at 410-730-1801 and make sure they have your correct date of birth and zip code.

…No Match Has Been Found

If you see the issue of “No match has been found” is an error caused by the wrong information being inputted. This means the membership number input is wrong, or the wrong date of birth or zip code exists in Columbia Association database.

Spectrum3

… Relationship

If you see the issue of “Relationship” with a yellow triangle, this is an error due to the primary member number not being used. The primary member is normally the first member on the account, normally the .01 of the membership or the lowest member number.
