1. What is online registration and reservation system?Online registration and reservation system allows customers to register via the Internet for most classes and programs and now allows customers to make ball field and pavilion reservations!  The system is available 24-hours a day, seven days a week, except during those times the system will be taken down for maintenance.

2. Why Did the City of Chandler’s Community Services Department switch to a new registration and reservation system?

     *Ability to make reservations for pavilions and ball fields on-line
     *Multiple ways to search for programs and activities
     *Allow customers to create “Wish Lists” which will help streamline your registration process
     *Sign-up for text message or email notifications for timely activity-related messages and information. 
     *The ability for customers to manage their account with access to schedules, payment/transaction history, recover  password electronically, etc.

Recreation Refund Policy:
The City reserves the right to cancel any program due to insufficient enrollment. Early registration is encouraged to help prevent course cancellation due to an apparent lack of interest. If a class or program is cancelled, you will be notified and offered an alternative choice, if available. If no alternative is available, a full refund or credit on account (your choice) will be issued within 30 days. The City also reserves the right to cancel, postpone, combine classes, change rooms, or change instructors as needed.

Cancellation requests and refunds are not available online.
If you wish to cancel your class or program enrollment, you must notify the Recreation Division at 480-782-2727 or 782-2640, or the Aquatics office at 782-2756 or 782-2752, at least 48 hours prior to the class start date for a full refund. Less than 48 hours notice will result in a 50 percent refund. Refunds are not available after 50 percent of the course/class session is complete, or after the second class for swim lessons. Supply fee refunds will be pro-rated based on attendance. Medical emergencies will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
Note: Some activities have a "No Refund" policy. This will be written in the activity descrip
