Program / Class Viewing
To assist our instructors in providing an optimum learning experience for your child, we ask that you refrain from entering the teaching area. This helps eliminate distractions for both the instructor and student. Space permitting, parents may view their children’s progress at specified times. Seating areas are available while your child is in a program/class. Your understanding is appreciated.
Acknowledgment of Risk
We want the registrants in our programs to be aware that when they participate in certain activities, there is a natural element of risk of injury which each participant must assume. As a loss prevention measure and risk management standard, participants are required to sign an Acknowledgment of Risk form for certain classes and activities. If a participant is under 18 years of age, the signature of a parent or legal guardian is necessary. It is recommended that participants in programs/classes involving strenuous activity consult with their physician prior to the start of their program/class.
Photographs, digital images, or videotape of program participants and spectators taken by Department representatives may be used for future promotional or marketing material. Cameras, cell phones, or any other devices capable of taking still or video pictures are prohibited from being used in the Recreation Center locker rooms, family changing rooms, or restrooms. Thank you for your cooperation.
For most programs/classes, age requirements will be as of the date of the first class, unless noted. Age requirements are established for the benefit of the student and instructor as well as for safety. Please verify that your child is within the specified guidelines.
