Notice to all Shrewsbury Recreation Participants
The Recreation Committee has managed to accommodate all late registrations, with few exceptions, to our clinic and league sports programs. However, as late registrations impact team rosters (often negatively by reaching roster capacity), shirt orders, and number of teams committed to the leagues, the Recreation Committee is creating a year-round registration schedule with fixed deadlines as a way to simplify the process for families and assist the Recreation Committee efforts in making each sports program enjoyable for all of the children. This new schedule is as follows and will be effective starting with 2008 Spring Softball/Baseball Season:
Summer/Fall (Summer Camp/Soccer/Field Hockey) - June 15
Winter Flag Football - October 12
Winter League Basketball - October 25
Winter Clinic Basketball - November 10
Spring (Baseball/Softball) - January 15
We will continue to send email reminders to everyone registered on Community Pass, do backpack inserts for children at Shrewsbury Borough School, and post registration dates on the firehouse marquee. Families that do not have children in Shrewsbury Borough School are encouraged to register at Community Pass:
If a registration deadline is missed, we will make every attempt to accommodate your child, within the team roster limits previously established. If we are able to place your child on a team, a late fee of $100 per child will be applied. The late fee will not apply to Kindergarten through second grade (clinic programs) or the summer camp program. The Recreation Committee believes that a fixed calendar will greatly assist parents with registration, allow the Recreation Committee to better manage the recreation programs, and to ensure the children have every opportunity to participate.
The Borough of Shrewsbury and Shrewsbury Recreation Committee does not collect personally-identifying information about a user except for information that is voluntarily provided to us so that we can serve the user's needs and for legitimate registration purposes. For example, when the user completes an online registration, we need to retain certain personally-identifying information on the Site in order to respond to the registration. A user's personally-identifying information (voluntarily submitted in connection with an online registration) will be treated confidentially and will not be shared with third parties.
There are no refunds after start of the program. Fees will not be pro-rated for those registering after a class has started.
Your payment and personal information is always safe. Our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read over the internet.
