Recreation - Registration Information
Registration will be accepted from the date of this brochure's release. Instructional classes are open to both Residents and Non-Residents, on a first come, first served basis; however, there are separate class fees for Residents (R) and Non-Residents (NR). Proof of Residency will be required for all class registration. Early registration is strongly recommended. Program fees must be paid at the time of registration (cash, check or money order). Make checks payable to the Clifton Recreation Department. Include your driver’s license number on all checks. The City will charge a $35.00 service fee for all checks not honored for any reason by the bank. Enrolled participants should attend the first class as scheduled – no confirmation is mailed to you. Late registration will be accepted prior to the second class meeting. Individuals registering late will be required to pay the total class fee (no pro-rating). Children must meet age requirements listed for the programs by the first day of the class unless program description indicates otherwise. The Clifton Recreation Department does not discriminate on the grounds of race, color, national origin, age or ability to participate in our programs. Our Department is committed to make sure that our programs are accessible for all citizens. If you need assistance, please contact us at least two weeks prior to the event/class so that we can make arrangements. A copy of our registration card may be downloaded as an Adobe PDF file.

PROGRAM SCHEDULING AND CANCELLATIONS
The Recreation Department reserves the right to cancel, postpone, relocate or combine any program due to insufficient registration or other causes that may affect the health, safety or welfare of the program participants. A full refund will be issued for programs canceled by the Recreation Department (allow 4 – 6 weeks for processing return). Every effort will be made to notify registrants of program cancellations. If schools close due to inclement weather, all daytime classes will be canceled until 5:00 p.m. The decision to conduct evening classes and programs will be made by 4:00 p.m. To find out the status of evening programs call the Recreation Weather Hotline, (973) 470-5680. When public schools are closed, recreation programs conducted at public schools are automatically cancelled.
A request for refund must be made in PERSON five (5) business days (Mon. – Fri.) before the program begins, except for trips which require ten (10) business days. Refunds will not be issued for 1-day workshops, seminars, or special events. Refunds will NOT be issued once the program starts. Refunds will also not be issued if your child is suspended or dismissed from a program for behavior reasons. Full refunds are granted in the event that a class canceled by the Recreation Department. All refunds will follow the Finance Department's bill-paying schedule and will be issued by City check (no cash refunds, and a social security number must be furnished to receive your refund). Allow 4 – 6 weeks for refunds to be received. Failure to return signed purchase order within 3 months of issuance will result in cancellation of refund. A $5.00 service charge, amount may vary for specific programs, will be assessed per participant / per activity / per session for all requested refunds. Individuals may have the option of receiving credit instead of a refund. In this case, no service charge will be incurred.
