Guidelines for Apex Centre


Proof of Residency

Resident rates are only available to those who live within the city limits of McKinney and pay property taxes to the City of McKinney. You must provide proof of residency the first time you register in order to receive the resident rate. Once you are in our system, you will not need to prove residency again unless your address changes. The only acceptable forms of proof include a valid driver’s license or state identification card or a current electric, gas, water or garbage bill that shows your name and  address. McKinney residency is verified using the Collin Central Appraisal District website.

Class Locations

The location for all classes, activities, programs and events are at the Apex Centre, unless otherwise noted.

Registration Deadline

Registrations are on a first come first serve basis, and participants are encouraged to register as early as possible.  Registration deadline is the Friday before the class begins, unless otherwise noted. Participants may register for all classes, activities, programs and events in person or over the phone. 

Class Makeup Policy

If it is necessary to cancel a class because of inclement weather, the customer service staff will notify all participants at least one hour before class is scheduled to begin when possible.  You may call 972-547-9029.  If a swim lesson is canceled, the aquatic staff will contact you within 24 hours to reschedule.  Any group class missed will not be made up.

Class Refund or Transfer Policy

When a class is canceled due to low enrollment or other circumstances, you will be offered a transfer to another class or receive a full refund.  Participant initiated refunds and transfers will only be granted when a participants a) submits a transfer or refund request at least 5 business days prior to the class start date, b) moves from the area and notifies the staff at least 5 business days prior to the class start date, c) becomes ill, in which a doctors statement must be presented upon request.  If a refund/transfer is not requested to be applied to the merchandise or program within 90 days the refund/transfer will be forfeited.  

Rain Check Policy

In the event of pool operation suspension due to inclement weather, you can have your receipt stamped for a rain check. You must have been present in the pool areas less than two hours for the rain check policy to apply. Management reserves the right to suspend operation and/or close the pools at any time and initiate the rain check policy. If the indoor pool stays open while the outdoor pool closes, the rain check policy will not apply. 

Inclement Weather Policy

The pools will be closed when lightning occurs. If we are unable to reopen after thirty minutes, the pool will close and attempt to reopen later in the day. This policy is in effect until one hour prior to official closing time. This affects indoor and outdoor pool operations.
