PLEASE REGISTER EARLY!
Our activities fill up fast. Due to limited space, there may be 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!
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING POLICIES REGARDING REGISTRATION:
Fees: Fees must be paid when you register. Payment may be made by cash, check, or money order. Checks and money orders should be made payable to "The Town of West Springfield."
Financial Assistance: 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 Park and Recreation office. Please bring the following documents for filing for financial assistance; proof of residency, proof of household members, proof of income. Financial Assistance is for West Springfield Residents ONLY. Adult programs do not qualify for assistance.
In addition to obtaining the necessary documents, please fill out this form and bring with you when applying.
Waitlist: If the class/program you desire has already been filled, staff will place you on a waitlist, return your fee, and keep your registration form. You will be notified if a space becomes available or if new classes are formed. Program openings will be on a first come, first served basis from the waitlist.
