How do I know when I do not have class?
Class exception dates, or days when programs are not held, are listed on the calendar pages of asphaltgreen.org.
Does Asphalt Green offer trial classes?
While we do not offer the option of trying a class before enrolling, we invite parents to observe classes that they are interested in for their children. We are happy to answer any questions you have about our classes. Please contact the appropriate department for more information.
Can I sign up for a class once the term has started?
Yes, we are more than happy to welcome your child into a class if there is space. To sign up for a class after the registration period has closed, please contact the appropriate department directly. Be advised we do not offer a pro-rated tuition fee.
If I am on a waiting list, should I show up for class?
No. Being on a waiting list does not mean that you are registered for a class. If space becomes available, we will contact you to complete the registration process.
What if the class I want is already full?
You can enroll in the same class at a different time, put your name on the waiting list to be enrolled should a space become available, or enroll in private lessons to receive personalized instruction.
I have been in a class for the past two semesters and now it is closed. Is there any way I can be enrolled in this class?
Registration is accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. In an effort to reward our returning class participants, we offer a priority registration period before the class is open to new customers. If a class is filled, you can place your name on a waiting list to be enrolled should a space become available.
At what age must my child use the gender-appropriate locker room?
Children age five years and older must use gender-appropriate locker rooms. Family locker rooms are available at both of our locations. Children ages 7 and younger require adult supervision at all times.
If I register online, how do I get my class card?
You can pick up your class card at the registration desk.
My child is too young or too old for a particular class, can they still attend?
All youth classes are broken down into age ranges that allow for appropriate social interaction and an optimum learning environment. Parents of children that may have developmental delays should contact the appropriate department directly to discuss the best options.
May I transfer between Asphalt Green’s Upper East Side and Battery Park City campuses?
Transferring between campuses is not permitted. If you prefer taking classes at a different location, you must remove yourself from your currently registered class and register accordingly at the other location. Our Registration Department will gladly assist you if needed.
Is there a fee to watch my child participate in programs?
There is no fee for parents and guardians to watch their child participate in our paid programs. However, during family recreation time in our pool, basketball court, or indoor turf, a $35 drop-in fee applies.
Do you ever close due to weather?
If New York City public schools are closed due to inclement weather, program classes will be canceled. No makeup classes, credits, or refunds will be granted. Asphalt Green reserves the right to cancel program classes due to inclement weather during days public schools are not in session. A makeup or credit will be offered upon request should a class be canceled three (3) or more times in a single term due to weather conditions.

My child is advanced. How do I get them enrolled in an advanced swim class?
If you have not previously attended classes at Asphalt Green, please reach out to our Aquatics Department so we can evaluate your child and place them in the appropriate class.
Can I transfer from one class to another or to private lessons?
Yes. Transfers must be completed within the first two weeks of the term. Please contact our Aquatics Department to make a transfer request. Private lessons will not begin until your transfer is complete.
When can I start private swim lessons?
Continuing private lesson students may start at the beginning of the term, while those new to private lessons will be scheduled two to three weeks into the term.
My child is advanced. How do I get them enrolled in an advanced sports class?
We ask that parents enroll their child in the age appropriate class without prerequisites first. During the early weeks of the semester, should our coach deem your child advanced, they will discuss appropriate options with you and the program manager. Our coaches are continually evaluating class participants and determining ways for improvement. If a promotion is recommended, this will be communicated to the parent as soon as possible.
Do you allow spectators in sports classes?
It depends on the location of the class. Typically, classes on the field and gymnasium are suitable for spectator viewing. For classes that allow spectators, please abide by any posted rules to ensure safety of all participants. If posted rules are not followed, Asphalt Green staff reserve the right to ask spectators to leave the area. During family recreation time in our pool, basketball court, or indoor turf, a $35 drop-in fee applies.
