Within the West Springfield Park and Recreation Department programs you will notice different fees for Town of West Springfield Residents (R) and Non-Residents (NR). The Town of West Springfield residents make a significant contribution to the financing and operation of the West Springfield Park and Recreation Department through town property taxes. These taxes are paid whether or not individuals participate in programs.
To ensure equity, non-residents (those living outside the West Springfield Town limits) will be charged a non-resident fee in addition to the program fee based upon the type of program offered.
The two types of fee structures are;
(1) Self-Supporting – Programs where the registration fee covers the direct cost of the program. Non-resident fee will include the program fee plus an additional administrative fee of $5 - $10.
(2) Fair-Share (non-resident fee) – programs where tax dollars are allocated to offset registration fees for residents. Non-residents will be charged the program fee plus an additional equitable based fee, to offset the tax dollars contributed by residents.

Must be paid when you register. Payment may be by cash, check or money order. Checks and money orders should be made payable to “The Town of West Springfield."
If the class/program you desire has already been filled, staff will return your fee and keep your registration form. You will be notified if a space becomes available or new classes are formed. Program openings will be on a first come first served basis from the waiting list.
It is the policy of the Park and Recreation Commission that the inability to pay a fee should not deter any child who wishes to participate in a program from doing so. Families wishing to apply for financial assistance may do so in person at the P&R office. Please bring the following documents for filing for financial assistance; proof of residency, proof of household members, proof on income.
In addition to obtaining the necessary documents, please fill out this form and bring with you when applying.

PLEASE REGISTER EARLY!
Our activities fill up fast. Due to limited space, there maybe times when not everyone can be accommodated, or programs maybe cancelled due to low enrollment. Nothing kills a program faster than residents who wait until the last minute to register. There is a point when a program must be cancelled or modified if there are insufficient registrations. All programs require a high level of coordination, including facility scheduling, staffing, volunteer recruitment and purchasing of supplies. Please do not wait until the last minute to register!
