Registrations may be processed online or in person. We accept Cash, Credit (Visa, MC, Discover), and checks (made out to Southborough Recreation). Registrations will not be taken before registration officially opens or after the posted deadline dates. Registrations that require additional paperwork (i.e. medical forms) will not be considered complete until all paperwork is received.
Refunds will be granted with a 10% fee assessed from your total. If there is a refund request due to a medical condition, a note from a medical professional is required. If for a medical reason, a full refund will be granted. Refunds will not be granted once your program begins. Refunds will not be granted if you do not show up for your registered program.
Cancellations for Recreation Department sponsored programming will be announced by the Recreation Department. Email will be utilized for all participants registered into a program. The Recreation Department reserves the right to cancel programs for any reason they deem necessary (weather, enrollment numbers, safety, etc.)
Make Up Classes
We will do our best to provide make up classes to anything that is cancelled or postponed. The Recreation Department reserves the right to offer a qualified substitute instructor in the event the listed program coordinator is not available, or end a class due to schedule conflicts.
Scholarships are available for Southborough Residents only. Scholarship applications can be found on our website under the “forms” tab.
If you would like to request a program aide (1:1) be provided for your child during a recreation program, please inform the Recreation Department no later than 10 business days prior to the start of your registered program. The Southborough Recreation Department cannot guarantee an aide will be secured.
Southborough Recreation Close-Contact Policy - Recreation After School Programs
Per the guidelines set by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and the Department of Public Health If your student is identified as a close contact of a COVID-19 positive case during school:
If your child is exposed to a positive COVID-19 case during a NON-SCHOOL sponsored extracurricular activity (scout meeting, youth sport program, etc); your student CANNOT participate in the school test and stay option and need quarantine at home.
- You have the option to participate in the “test and stay” program OR do a strict quarantine at home
- If you choose to participate in “test and stay” the Recreation Department is recommending following the DESE/DPH guideline that says any time your student is not in school; they will need to follow a strict quarantine
- Even if your student’s test is negative, they will not be permitted to participate in non-school sponsored events until AFTER the end of the 7th?quarantine day. Your child will be permitted on the 8th day.
The Southborough Recreation Department and its Recreation After School Programs (RAP) are non-school programs. Therefore, the policy above relates to all Recreation sponsored programs.
If you are affected by this, and unable to attend a class, the Southborough Recreation Department will apply a credit to your household for any missed class if requested.
