BRC Late Fee Policy on All Activities

BRC has in place a $5 late fee for ALL sign-ups received after the deadline for ALL activities.  The late fee is not a punishment, but rather an ENCOURAGEMENT to sign up by the deadline.  In many cases, supplies are ordered, teams divided, and t-shirts ordered by the number enrolled on the deadline.  Adding additional kids after the deadline causes  extra costs for additional supplies, t-shirts, and sometimes to find extra coaches, which is why we have the late fee in place.  BRC asks your help to get signed up ON or BEFORE the deadlines on all activities.  We appreciate your help and

support of BRC programs! 

 

Activity Deadlines can be found:

· In the BRC brochure

· BRC monthly email activity newsletter

· www.burlingtonrec.com

· BRC Facebook page

 

BRC Payment Policies

All activities MUST be paid for at the time of registration.  We accept cash, check, credit or debit cards.  If you call to      register by phone, please have a credit or debit card ready (but know that we still need the signed registration form for a complete enrollment).  Also, due to a system up-grade, we now need the 3 digit CVC code on the back of your card each time.  Please be prepared to provide this.  Please do NOT leave forms on the counter with instructions to use a card on file.   Payment secures a spot in that activity.  We will not enroll without payment.
