• No refunds are made after the first game for a sports activity.

• Some activities have a NO REFUND policy. Please refer to the written activity or course description to determine if this policy is in effect.


Fitness Centers

  • Fitness center memberships are non-refundable and non-tranferable.


DPR's policy allows for credit to a participant's DPR account if after attending the first day of an activity or class, the participant is not completely satisfied and notifies DPR within two days after attending. The credit will be applied to any other class/activity within one year from the date of issue. This policy does not apply to missed classes/activities, facility rentals, adult sports leagues, sporting events, and transportation costs to entertainment.
