SILVER SNEAKER WATER FITNESS CLASS POLICY
Each Silver Sneaker member will be allowed three absences from Silver Splash class. After four absences, however, the Silver Sneaker member will be charged the $16 per session fee for the class. Water classes are based on registrations per session. Silver Sneakers members do not have a charge for the Silver Splash classes. We wish to keep it that way. The goal is to keep these classes available for Silver Sneakers that are interested in the class and will be attending the majority of the time. We want to discourage individuals from registering for the class because it is free, not attending, and unfortunately taking a coveted spot from someone who wishes to attend regularly. We understand that everyone must miss from time to time, but we want to be fair to all members. If you feel you cannot attend regularly you may withdraw from the class to avoid being charged and prior to your 4th absence.
