-Reminder: The Grimes Parks and Rec programs are non-refundable and non-transferable.  The only time we offer refunds is if the Grimes Parks and Rec Dept. has to cancel the program or if it's due to medical reasons that your child cannot participate.

-All transfer or change requests to a registration must be made prior to the registration deadline of the original program. Requests for program transfers or changes after the registration deadline will not be accepted. Transfers and changes to the original registration will incur a $5 change fee.  Enrollments are not transferable to another person outside of the immediate family.
