Registration Guidelines

All registration is done at the Macedonia Family Recreation Center. Priority is given to members first. Register promptly to ensure your position in the program and to prevent possible cancellation due to low enrollment. We reserve the right to cancel classes due to insufficient enrollment prior to the start of the class. We accept registrations until the class is full or as noted:

Swim Lessons

Fitness Classes (Land & Water)

Registration is accepted throughout the entire session. No prorated fees available. Drop ins welcome for some classes; see course description for details.

Youth Sports Organizations

Registration dates are published as available for these programs.

Drop In Fee Guidelines

A drop in fee is available for some programs (see program description for drop in availability and pricing). When classes are full, dropping in will not be possible. All classes require a minimum number of pre-registered participants to operate. If minimum enrollment is not met, classes will be cancelled. The best way to ensure a spot in a class is to pre-register. All drop in registrations must be done in person at the front desk before entering the class.
