Proof of residency in the form of a current tax bill or utility bill may be required during program registration. Geneva Park District residents are given first priority for program registration.

Program Limitations

Each program at the Geneva Park District has an established minimum and maximum number of possible registrants. These numbers are set to guarantee the highest quality program we can offer. The facility, student/teacher ratio and the nature of the program are considered when setting program registration minimums and maximums. Programs that do not meet the minimum number of registrants may be cancelled. Please refer to the Program Cancellation section for more information.

Program instructors are not allowed to accept any registrant beyond the established maximum without authorization by their immediate recreation supervisor.


Payment / Pro-rating: Participants will not be registered for programs without payment. Program fees will not be pro-rated for late enrollment.

Important Class Cancellation Information:

Program supervisors begin reviewing class enrollment and canceling classes that do not meet minimum enrollment approximately ONE WEEK prior to the class start date. It is extremely important that you try to register for class choices no later than one week before they begin. All participants registered in cancelled programs will be notified by the Geneva Park District staff and will receive a full refund.

Waiting List

Since all of our programs have registration limits we cannot guarantee your choice of enrollment in them. The Geneva Park District maintains waiting lists for programs that have reached their maximum registration. Placement on a waiting list is encouraged. Individuals placed on a waiting list will be contacted if any additional program space becomes available.

Waiver Form:

The Park District is unable to assume responsibility for injuries or accidents occurring programs, activities, parks, and facilities. Such insurance would make program user fees prohibitive. The Insurance Liability Waiver section of the registration form must be signed when registering yourself or your minor childto participate in Geneva Park District programs.

Age Requirements

When age limitations exist, proof of age (such as a birth certificate) may be required. Participants must be the minimum age required for the program by the first day of the program unless otherwise stated.

To insure a quality program for program participants, children are not allowed in adult programs and vice-versa. Siblings of children not registered for a program are not allowed to attend without expressed permission by the instructor. Adults may observe children’s programs at the discretion of the instructor.

Special Accommodations

Special Accommodation Services are provided through the inclusion services of the Fox Valley Special Recreation Association. Requests for this service should be made a minimum of 2 weeks before the start date of any program during the registration process. The registration form located on the last page of this guide has a designated area for the request for such services.

Program Cancellations

The Park District reserves the right to cancel, postpone, combine programs or change instructors. Programs not meeting minimum registration will be cancelled one week prior to the start date and refunds will be issued. All participants registered in cancelled programs will be notified by the Geneva Park District staff and will receive a full refund.
