Program Registration & Cancellation Info

Program Registration
     All registrations are done online through the public side of the website or in-house.  Registrations are accepted online or In-Person (registrations are not accepted over the phone). In-Person registrations need to have created a household account on the Recreation website prior to coming in.  Registrations are accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Some programs have limited enrollment, so early registration is encouraged.  Registration on the website can be paid online or offline; Online payment is with a credit card; Offline payment is to mail or drop off the receipt with payment.  (credit cards are not accepted at the Rec. Office).

   Note: Using the Offline Payment Option- "Check Out Offline" does NOT enroll the person for the program(s) that were selected, until payment, by check or cash, has been received and processed.  The person is not counted towards the minimum or maximum numbers for a program and may not get into the program if it fills before we receive the payment.  Send in or drop off payment immediately.

Program Registration Deadlines
     Registration deadlines are set at 7 days prior to the start date of a program, unless otherwise stated. Deadlines are set to ensure that minimum numbers are met to offer a program and commitments are made to instructors based on numbers one week prior to start date.
     Registrations received after the deadline will be accepted if space is available, but there is no guarantee of placement. Registration will close when a program has reached its maximum number and a waiting list will be created.
     No registrations are accepted after the second meeting of a program, after the first day of a camp, or in the case of a league, a player has to attend one practice before the first game, otherwise they can not register for the league.

Program Fees & Payments
     Payment must be made in full at the time of registration, either by the online or offline payment options, unless a deposit is allowed. Deposits are NON-Refundable. If a deposit has been paid, the remaining balance is due by the required date listed for the program. Participants will not be allowed to attend a program until payment is paid in full.

Day of Program Cancellations

     Program meeting days can be cancelled due to inclement weather, facility conditions, and/or other unknown circumstances.  The policy is to make the call of a cancellation at the start time of the program at the location.  If known far enough in advance, all registered participants will be notified by email.  It will also be posted on the Recreation website.  However, in most cases the call for a cancellation will be made the day of and right up to the start time. 
     In the case where a program is held inside a school facility, all Recreation programs are cancelled any time school is closed for weather related situations.  Recreation programs may still be on in the case of early dismissals or cancelling school only activities.
If a day must be cancelled, every effort will be made to offer a make-up, this will depend on if the facility and instructor are available.  If multiple days must be cancelled they all will not be made up.  All participants will be notified by email of make-up dates and times.
