Registration and Policies

RecDesk Program Registration

Springfield Township Parks and Recreation utilizes an online registration program called RecDesk. The installation of RecDesk allows users to register for programs, view activity history, view payment history and much more!

Parents and guardians should list themselves as the head-of-household when making a family account. All contact information should be up-to-date in the event the Parks and Recreation Department should need to contact you regarding the program. 

Create your account at RecDesk Online. 


Cancellations & Refund Policy

Program Cancelation
Springfield Township Parks and Recreation reserves the right to cancel any program, trip or activity due to insufficient registration. A full refund will be issued to the participant.

Program Withdrawal & Refunds

Any participant may withdraw from a Springfield Township Parks & Recreation activity, and be entitled to a refund, if such withdrawal and refund request is provided to the Parks & Recreation Department no less than three (3) weeks prior to the start of any program. An administrative fee of $15.00 (per program per child) will be withheld from all processed registrations. Many classes & camps depend on the number of participants and your registration may ensure that the programs will run. NO adjustments or refunds will be made within three (3) weeks of the start of the class or for missed classes/sessions.

For those registering for an outdoor or athletic program such as tennis, golf, soccer, basketball, etc; please be aware, Springfield Township Parks and Recreation does not guarantee rain out dates. In the event that an activity is rained out, the registration fee will not be refunded.

Broadway or Sporting Event Bus Trips: Refunds are not possible for bus trips to ticketed events. 

Pro-Rate and Late Registration Fees

Program Transfers
Participants are entitled to transfer from one program to another program of the same fee prior to the start of the program. Program transfers will be honored upon phone call request only.
