You always have the option of being placed on a waitlist for any full program. If a spot becomes available, you will be notified by email.

The spot will be reserved for you, and you will be required to complete the registration and payment within two business days.

After that time, the spot will be reserved for the next person on the waitlist.

Pre-registration is recommended for all drop-in programs. All drop-in programs are available for registration one week before the date of the program. In-person registration is not guaranteed but will be accepted if space is still available. Waitlists for Drop-Ins — you always have the option to put yourself on a waitlist if a drop-in program is already at capacity. If a spot becomes available, you will be notified by email. The spot will be reserved for you, and you will be required to complete the registration and payment within 4-6 hours. After that time, the spot will be reserved for the next person on the waitlist.
Norfolk County may cancel or combine programs at any time prior to the start date of the program. Norfolk County reserves the right to change the program time, location or fee if required. If this happens a registered patron will receive a full refund or account credit.

During periods of inclement weather, Norfolk County makes every effort to keep facilities open during our regular business hours.

When a decision to close facilities is made staff will make every effort to notify our registered participants.  The main message at 519-426-8866 ext. 2233 will also be updated with a recorded closure message.

Closure messages will be posted on Recreation's Facebook page and Twitter feed. Cancellations may be announced on myFM 98.9.

Program credits will automatically be applied. Refunds will be issued if requested.
Cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances including, but not limited to: insufficient registrations, staffing levels, equipment failure, emergencies, pool fouling, may occur from time to time.

We do our best to minimize these cancellations and we will try to notify participants with as much notice as possible. If this occurs a credit will be automatically applied to your account. There will be no refunds.

Missed Days/Classes—Absences from program days/classes due to illness, vacation, or for any other reason will not be eligible for credit or refund and make-up classes will not be available. Account credits may be given for extended absences due to injury or other extenuating circumstances.

Withdrawals for Rec Programs/Swim Lessons will be permitted up to 7 days before the start of the program or session. A full program credit or refund is available with no administrative fee.
