Terms of Use and Event Policies

Updated: 6 July 2016

WEATHER POLICY

Weather complications are assessed the morning of the school by the instructors on site.  If it is possible to have the school, the instructors will push forward as planned; however, in the event of cancellation notifications will be sent via email and we will attempt to contact everyone individually by phone as well.  As a result of a cancellation, we will work individually with you to find a solution.  We remain as flexible as possible due to weather situations.  If the decision to cancel a school is made we will offer rescheduling options or provide full refunds for the registration fees of the school.

Refunds can only be issued if the Don Trahan Academy Instructor on location cancels the school due to weather, there no exceptions to this policy. Cancellations by the students are handled in agreement with the stipulations set forth on this page under "Returns, Cancelations, and Refund Policy".
