RESIDENCY AND NON-RESIDENT POLICY
Participants must be Manchester residents and proof of residency is required upon registration, unless otherwise noted. A resident is defined as a person who permanently resides in the Town of Manchester. Non-residents may only register for programs that indicate “nr” (non-resident fee) next to the listed fee.
Program Enrollment Policy
Enrollment is limited and most programs are on a first come, first served basis. The Recreation Division reserves the right to cancel or close a program which does not meet minimum enrollment requirements.
Full refunds will be made if a request is made at least one week prior to the start of the program or if the Recreation Division cancels the class. Partial refunds will be made on a pro-rated basis, based on the date of notification, only in the first half of the program’s duration. Refunds will not be considered once classes are half over or after the program ends. Refunds will not be considered less than one week prior to start of class.
Pro-rating Fees for Late Registration
Late registration will be accepted for most programs if space permits. Programs will be pro-rated up to 50% at or after the programs mid-point. Registration taken prior to the programs mid-point will be charged full price. Please note all pro-rating needs to be approved by a supervisor.
On-line registrants should print out their receipt upon registration. Program information will also be included on this form.
Waiting List Policy
If your desired class is filled, you will be placed on a waiting list and will be notified by our department if openings become available. Please note that not all programming offers a waitlist option, an example would be Swim Lessons.
Don’t Be Disappointed! Register Early!
Unfortunately, we are sometimes forced to cancel programs two to three days prior to the start of the class because of under enrollment. When you wait too long to register and your class fills, don’t be disappointed! Register Early!
