The City reserves the right to cancel any program due to insufficient enrollment. Early registration is encouraged to help prevent course cancellation due to an apparent lack of interest. If a class or program is cancelled, you will be notified and offered an alternative choice, if available. If no alternative is available, a full refund or credit on account (your choice) will be issued within 30 days. The City also reserves the right to cancel, postpone, combine classes, change rooms, or change instructors as needed.

Cancellation requests and refunds are not available online.
If you wish to cancel your class or program enrollment, you must notify the Recreation Division at -480-782-2727 or 782-2640, or the Aquatics office at 782-2756 or 782-2752, at least 48 hours prior to the class start date for a full refund. Less than 48 hours notice will result in a 50 percent refund. Refunds are not available after 50 percent of the course/class session is complete, or after the second class for swim lessons. Supply fee refunds will be pro-rated based on attendance. Medical emergencies will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
