Registration Policies

Refunds

Full refunds or credits will be granted upon request in the event that a program is cancelled by ECSD. If a refund is requested, a check for the refund amount will be mailed within two weeks. Participants who wish to cancel their registration before the program starts will be charged a $5 administrative fee for a refund request (there is no charge for a credit request). Refunds are not given once a program has started. If a participant registers online, ECSD will refund the program fee only. The service fee charged by our online software, Active, will not be refunded.

Returned checks

There is a $15 penalty for any returned checks. This payment, along with payment for the program must be submitted to the ECSD in cash or with a bank check. No participation in any programs will be permitted until full payment is made.

Age requirements

Please be aware of age requirements for youth programs. Children must meet the specified age and/or grade requirements during the program period. Age requirements must be adhered to for a variety of factors, including but not limited to participant safety, child care ratios, age-appropriate programming and program times.

Cancellations

If a program is cancelled due to inclement weather, the ECSD will attempt to contact each participant in the program. Participants should also check the ECSD home page, ECSD Facebook page and/or WCSH 6. If school is cancelled or released early, the ECSD will not hold any programs.

Non-residents

Some programs are limited to Eliot residents only. Eliot resident refers to one who has Eliot residence in the immediate family only. Programs open to non-residents require an additional $10 fee for programs over $10. Programs under $10 require an additional $5 fee.

Request policy

All special requests must be made in writing prior to the end of the program registration period. This includes: teammate requests, coach requests and practice days/times. While we will make every attempt to accommodate reasonable requests, we cannot guarantee that they will be fulfilled.
