Hillsborough Recreation contracts with many programs to enhance and enrich our community. These programs are verified and selected by Hillsborough Recreation staff and presented to the community on its school sites to extend the day of our students, but to also provide the opportunity to learn and have fun. When choosing a program we have the following vision in mind: fun, enriching, meets family demands/needs, provides real-life applications, and adds variety to our offerings.
Hillsborough Recreation is not in charge of these programs, rather is a conduit for our families to engage with these programs. When issues arise with these programs, it is my job to alleviate these concerns and issues and work with the contractor to rectify the problems on their end.
There are some programs that Hillsborough Recreation staffs or runs on all levels (Elementary basketball and HIVE programming). These programs are under the Director’s guidance and our staff (along with volunteer parents) assist in the success of these programs.
We are constantly looking for areas of growth and new programs that parents and kids are interested. If you have an idea for a program please don’t hesitate to call our office and let the Director of Recreation, Tony Giacomazzi, know.
If a course is canceled by the instructor or the Recreation Department, a refund will be made to participants.
Course Withdraw or Transfer
If a participant withdraws from a class before the first class meeting, there are two options:
Option 1: We can refund to one's credit card and he/she will receive a full refund minus the 8% surcharge. No refund will be given after the second class.
Option 2: We can refund back to one's Activenet Account and he/she will receive a full refund including the surcharge as one can use these funds for a future class through Hillsborough Recreation.
Register Early! Registration is not accepted in class. Courses not meeting their minimum enrollment will be canceled. All enrollments after a class has started will be charged a $10 late fee.
Many recreation classes are provided by contract with an independent vendor. While Hillsborough Recreation has reviewed the vendor’s qualifications, experience, and suitability for providing the class, Hillsborough Recreation may not have screened the individual employees of the vendors.
We do not pro-rate any Hillsborough Recreation offering without the approval from the independent contractor/vendor.
Class fees will not be pro-rated for missed sessions or late enrollment.
