Terms & Conditions

Please make checks out to BRAINS.

Please note:

The FHHS pool is a competition pool, not a bathing pool - water temperature is cool. BRAINS does not offer refunds for variations in temperature or condition of the water or facility. Maintenance of the FHHS pool facility is performed by a private company under contract with the NYC Department of Education and is not, in any way, under the control of the Bay Ridge Aquatics Institute, Inc.

No refunds. Applicant is responsible for the total fee since acceptance to the program is offered to a limited number of candidates. All teaching costs, security and  permit fees must be paid for whether classes are attended or not, therefore BRAINS cannot offer make-up classes, credits or refunds for any classes you may miss. In the event that a class is cancelled we will, at our option, either schedule a make-up or offer a refund or credit for the number of classes cancelled. Exceptions: If major illness or serious complications make it impossible for the registrant to attend classes, we will make every effort to fill the remaining classes with another participant. Should such circumstances arise and we can fill the slot, while we are not obligated to do so, we will consider your request for a refund or credit. Please note that a processing fee of $25 will be applied to any refunds granted. If you are seeking such consideration, you must submit this request in writing along with doctor's notes and/or any other proof needed.

Transfers: Any transfer requests not initiated by BRAINS must be accompanied by payment of a $15 transfer processing fee.

This activity is not sponsored nor endorsed by the New York City Department of Education.  The views and opinions expressed by the sponsoring organization or its participants do not necessarily state or reflect those of the New York City Department of Education.
