Register Online Information
Register online at CivicRec.
Advance registration and payment is required. Please register early; class sizes are limited and may be cancelled if registration is insufficient. We reserve the right to cancel, reschedule or combine activities as needed. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.
Youth Financial Assistance
Financial assistance for youth is available on a limited basis for those who meet residency and income requirements. For more information, see the financial assistance page.
Thank you for your support and enrollment! In the unlikely event a class or program is cancelled, registrants will receive a full refund by check mailed within 7-10 business days (credit card transactions are returned to the same credit card account). Participant refund requests are subject to a $6 administrative fee and will be accepted up to 5 days prior to the class start. The $6 administrative fee may be waived if transferred to another class or credited to a registrant’s recreation account (to be used for any Kennewick Recreation program or class within the calendar year). Once the activity has started or after the established deadline, refund and transfer options are forfeited.
Field/Court Refund Policy
Refund requests are accepted up to 3 days prior to each rental date. A $6 per field/court fee will be charged for every field or court cancelled after reservation. $100 maximum fee will be charged. The $6 fee will be kept no matter the refund source (check, credit, account).
In the unlikely event a class is cancelled, registrants are notified by phone and/or email. Registrants may transfer to another class, receive a credit, or receive a refund within two weeks of the cancellation.
Fair Share Fee Policy
Residents who live outside of the city limits of Kennewick are encouraged to participate in all programs; however, fees for "non-residents" are higher than those for "residents" for many of our programs and classes. "Non-residents do not pay property taxes that support City services." Boundaries used by the Post Office, the Kennewick School District, and the Kennewick Fire Department are not the same as city limit boundaries, so even though you may have a Kennewick mailing address, you may be considered a nonresident. If you need help determining whether you live inside or outside the city limits, please call our office at 509-585-4293.
