Avoid waiting in line and enjoy the convenience of registering from your home computer 24 hours a day/seven days a week.
Note: Only a percentage of class spots will be available on line. Once that percentage has been reached for that class, the class will be listed as full.

If this is the case for you when registering, call the Recreation Department at 647-3084 to see if there are still available spots. If so, this would require you to walk-in or mail-in your registration for the class/es which were full while trying to register online. Also some classes listed in our catalog are not available for on-line registration.

RESIDENCY POLICY AND NON-RESIDENT REGISTRATION
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 based on a first come, first serve basis. The Recreation Department reserves the right to cancel or close a program which does not meet minimum enrollment requirements.

REFUND POLICY
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 Department 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 programs duration. Refunds will not be considered once classes are half over or after the program ends. Please note that this is susceptible to change, so be sure to check with the Program Supervisor before registration.

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 that this is susceptible to change, so be sure to check with the Program Supervisor before registering.

CONFIRMATION RECEIPT
A confirmation receipt of your registration will be mailed for mail and fax registrants only. On-line registrants should print out their receipt and walk-in registrants will receive a printed receipt upon registration. Program information will also be included on this form. Walk-in registrants will receive a receipt and must sign a customer receipt log verifying registration and receiving a receipt.

WAITING LIST
If your desired class is filled, you will automatically be placed on a waiting list and your money will be returned. You will be notified by our department if openings become available.

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. Or there are times when you wait too long to register and your class fills. Don't be disappointed! Register Early!
