How To Use Account Credits

  • Payment Option 1. This is the default payment option when you first create your account. You pay for your clinics at the time of registration. If you are to remove yourself from any clinics outside of our 24 hour cancellation policy, you will receive credit to your account for future classes. To use these credits, you need to email with the clinic type, date, and time you would like to book with your credits and we will take care of registration and applying the credits for you.
  • Payment Option 2. You can opt-in for the house charge method. This method will allow you to register for clinics online without payment at time of registration, and will bill all of your clinics and lessons the 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th of each month. On the days that your clinics are billed, the system will automatically use any account credits before it charges your card. This is an opt-in service only, so if you would like to use this method please make sure you have a card on file first, and then email us at Note if you are on this method and use the app to register, you will need to choose the “charge my house account” option at checkout.
