Membership Billing/Dues
Monthly dues will be collected each month by EFT/ACH (electronic fund transfer) or recurring charge to a credit/debit card. The funds transfer will occur on the 1st of every month. If the 1st occurs on a weekend, the transfer will occur on the Monday following. Your monthly dues are not based upon attendance or failure to use the facility. Dues will be deducted on a month-to-month basis and may be terminated with a thirty (30) day written notice of the billing date. The enrollment fee is a non-refundable processing fee. A $20/month fee may be charged for payments not collected via the EFT/ACH billing process or recurring debit/charge card.

The Blue Springs Fieldhouse will provide members 30 days written notice of a membership fee increase. Membership increases are typically on an annual basis and are a result of the increased cost of doing business. All fee increases will be brought before the Blue Springs Park Commission for their review and approval.


Membership Renewal
If a member has paid in full for the year, a renewal request will be mailed out 1 month prior to the anniversary date.
If a member pays monthly, the membership is only stopped when a request in writing is provided by the member with a minimum of 30 day notice prior to membership being stopped. This must be done using the Member Status Change Form available at Member Services Desk.

Unless you have written authorization from the instructor stating a change is necessary, there will be a $5.00 transfer fee assessed. No refunds will be issued after the class has begun.


Make-up Class Policy
Due to the limited student-instructor ratio and full program schedule, there are no make-up lessons/classes for missed classes or classes cancelled for any reason. Please refer to the credits/refunds policy below for more information.

Cancellation of Classes
Classes must have a minimum number of participants in order to run. If a class does not meet its minimum enrollment, the class may be cancelled. To ensure a quality experience for all participants, the Blue Springs Fieldhouse may also choose to combine classes due to low enrollment. If the Blue Springs Fieldhouse cancels a class, a credit or refund will be issued. The following is the policy that the Blue Springs Fieldhouse will follow if a class is canceled:
• One week before the class starts, if the class has not met its minimum enrollment, those who are already registered in the class will be contacted and asked if they can help recruit additional class participants (i.e., would your child like to bring a friend).
• At least 3 business days before the class starts, the Blue Springs Fieldhouse staff will contact everyone enrolled in the class to let them know that the class has been canceled.
• If your class is canceled by the Blue Springs Fieldhouse, you will receive a full credit or refund.

Waiting List
Register early to avoid disappointment in case the class is full. If the course you are interested in is full, please request to be put on the waiting list. Additional programs may be offered dependent upon sufficient interest and facility and staff availability. Waiting lists will be taken for the formation of new classes but are not a guarantee of confirmed registration for the program. You will be contacted if space becomes available.

Credits/Refunds
Requests for refunds must be made 5 business days prior to the start of a program. A full refund will then be given minus a $10.00 processing fee. There are no refunds or credits due to inclement weather or other incidents outside of the Blue Springs Fieldhouse control. A refund will be issued to those with a documented medical necessity. If a registered participant requests a credit to their Parks and Recreation account, a full credit will be issued for a period of one year and balances will be forfeited if not used within that period of time. It is the desire of our organization to offer programs at the lowest possible prices. In order to accomplish this, we have established specific policies concerning refunds. Please read these policies before registering for any Blue Springs Fieldhouse program:





Memberships
Pre-paid membership dues – Membership dues are not refundable except in the following circumstances:

Documented medical condition – Which permanently prevents member from attending (medical conditions preventing members from attending for short term [1 month –11 months] are handled by “freezing” membership until member can return).

Relocation due to Employment - The member relocates at least 30 miles away from the Blue Springs Fieldhouse and establishes a new residency address.

Membership dues paid monthly (EFTs) – The paying of future membership dues monthly can be terminated by giving a written notice at least 30 days prior to the next withdrawal date. If cancellation notice is given less than 30 days prior to the next billing cycle, the member will be charged for the next full month and will have access to the facility that month. Set-up fees are non-refundable under any circumstances as well as any prepaid membership fees.


Leagues
Leagues (Basketball, Volleyball, Indoor Soccer, etc.) differ from open recreational periods for the same sports because they restrict enrollment to a specific number and incur additional expenses (scorers, timers, referees, etc.). A league participation fee is charged based on a fair sharing of the costs of operating the league. Because a player draft usually occurs, it is not possible to replace players who wish to withdraw from the leagues with people on a waiting list. Leagues are non-refundable.


Specialty Classes
(i.e., kickboxing, dancing, yoga, sports performance training, etc.) Staff members are hired and equipment is purchased based on advanced registration. Refunds are granted only under the following conditions:
• 100% refund minus processing fee of $10.

• The Fieldhouse is notified of cancellation 5 business days prior to the start of the program.
