Refund Policy

If a participant wants to cancel, the participant or guardian may request a refund in accordance with the following: 

General Refund Policy (Most PRCS Programs)

If a customer requests a refund 15+ days prior to the start date or reservation date they shall receive a full refund. If a customer requests a refund 14 days or less prior to the start date, they shall receive a refund of 50% per item canceled. Pavilions and fields may be rescheduled in lieu of a refund. For pavilion rentals, reschedule requests can be submitted up to the day of the rental.

Refund requests shall be submitted in writing and include the name of the participant, and the activity number (for program refunds). Staff shall instruct the customer to submit a written request that is dated and submitted by email, fax, or mail to the site or program manager.

The refund request shall be processed based on the date of the customer’s original written request and the applicable refund policy. Refund requests for same day transactions should be processed by the facility or program manager, refunding in full to the original form of payment. 

Medical-related cancellation requests with a doctor’s note will receive a prorated refund minus days attended.

If a customer requests to cancel a pavilion reservation on the day of the rental due to inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances, the renter may reschedule an equivalent reservation without an additional fee.

Refunds for an outdoor pool rental are considered on a case-by-case basis.
