You cannot skate the same day you have registered for the class because the skate school needs time to process the registration and update our attendance sheets.

Two make-ups are permitted per semester. If you would like a make up you may attend a class OF THE SAME LEVEL on a different day and time. Make-ups are only available if there is an opening in the class. You must reserve a make-up class in advance!
