-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.

-Discounted Programs- If you are enrolled in the DCG Free/Reduced School Lunch Program, you are eligible for a discount on our programs.  Please email Brett at or call him at the Grimes Rec Office at 515-986-2143.  You will need to register in person for this discount to be applied.

-A sibling discount of 10% off the program fees can be applied.  You will need to register in person for this discount to be applied as our online system doesn't handle discounts.

-We don't allow player requests to be on the same team as another.  Only coaches can request to coach with each other.

-Players must play at their age/grade level and not play up in our programming.
