When to Register

The program spring/summer program guide comes out at the end of January and registration begins at 6am on February 1st.  The Fall/Winter program guide comes out the end of July and registration begins at 9am on August 1st.

Most programs require pre-registration, unless otherwise noted. Due to space limitations, registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Ages: Participants must be within the age-range shown for that program. We will not accommodate requests for exceptions to this rule, other than for swim lessons.


Withdrawals: A participant who wishes to withdraw from a program must do so in writing at least 7 days prior to the first day of the program. Thereafter, someone must be on the waiting list for that program and enroll, otherwise no refund will be issued. A $5.00 fee will be assessed for all refunds. It may take up to two weeks to receive a refund. 

Injury: If a participant is unable to complete a program due to illness or injury, we require verification from a medical doctor. The program refund will be pro-rated if the injury or illness occurs during the course of the program. All requests must be made in writing. A $5.00 fee will be assessed for all refunds. It may take up to two weeks to receive a refund.

Cancellations: If the Parks Department cancels a program, the full amount of the program will be refunded.

Inclement Weather: For some programs that are canceled due to inclement weather, a maximum one-week extension is scheduled to make up missed program days.
