Register Early

Often times participants will wait until the last minute to register for a program. Disappointment occurs because a program has been filled or possibly cancelled due to low enrollment. Ensure yourself a spot and help keep our programs running by registering early.

 

Class Cancellations

Every effort is made to avoid canceling classes. However, a minimum number of participants must be registered. Notification of class cancellation may be made with as little as 24-hour notice. In cases where a program is canceled, you will be notified before the start of the program and a full refund will be issued.

 

Transfer Policy

  1. All transfer requests will be honored if there are openings in the class requesting to be transferred to and the participant is the appropriate age for the program.

  2. If additional payment is due, this must be made at the time of the transfer request.

 

Refund Policy

The Worth Park District is committed to providing the highest quality recreation activities, events, and programs. If a person is not completely satisfied with a program or service due to circumstances under the Park District’s control, the Worth Park District will arrange for the person to repeat the class at no charge, use the fee for another class during the same season, or receive a refund.
