A program participant may receive a refund for a program under the following circumstances:


1)      The request is made prior to the program registration deadline. A mandatory $5.00 processing fee will apply.

2)      Prorated refunds will be issued in a case when the Park District receives a written medical certificate that a medical condition exists that prohibits participation. The medical note must be received no later than the last date of the program. A $5.00 processing fee will apply.

3)      A refund of 75% will be given if the refund request is made between the registration date and the program start date.

4)      A refund of 50% will be given if the refund request is made after the program start date (i.e. orientation or first practice, whichever comes first) within the first week of the program starting. A processing fee is included in the 50% program fee. This excludes Preschool and Day Care.

5)      Extended Care end-of-year balances can be refunded or rolled into the next school year.


·         This does not apply if the Park District cancels the program.

·         No refunds will be given for classes missed or forgotten. Fees will not be prorated.

·         All other refunds are subject to a $5.00 cancellation fee. No refund is given for the cost of t-shirts, trophies, other awards, special events, trips, one-day programs, or other contractual programs.

·         Preschool Registration Fee, Extended Care Registration Fee, and Day Care Registration Fee holds a place for your child in the program and is not transferable or refundable.

·         Preschool/Daycare refunds are unique and must follow the guidelines in the Parent Handbook.


All refund requests must be submitted in writing to the Park District for approval.
