Program Registration
Registration takes place at the Brandon Township Parks & Recreation office, located in the Brandon Township Municipal Building. The recreation office is open non-holiday weekdays, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Registration forms and checks may also be mailed to Brandon Township Parks & Recreation, P. O. Box 929, 395 Mill Street, Ortonville, Michigan 48462. One check may be written for any number of registrations. Checks should be made payable to Brandon Township Parks & Recreation. Please do not mail cash. Brandon Township does not accept payment by credit card. For after-hours convenience, please use the bright blue BRANDON RECREATION drop box located near the back door of the Brandon Township Municipal Building. Do not leave cash in the drop box. A late fee is added to each registration/payment accepted after program registration deadlines. Uniforms for any late registration may not be delivered by the first game. Call or visit the recreation office to verify that openings remain in any given program prior to remitting a late registration. Nonresidents must add a $10 nonresident surcharge to each remitted program registration. Nonresident fees do NOT apply to special events such as bus trips, festivals or dances.

ADA & Special Needs Policy
Brandon Township Parks & Recreation complies with the spirit and intent of the Americans with Disabilities Act. With advance notice, we will endeavor to make necessary and reasonable accommodations to allow people with disabilities access to programs and events organized by Brandon Township Parks & Recreation.

Cancellations

PLEASE SIGN UP TO RECEIVE TEXT OR E-MAIL NOTIFICATIONS OF CANCELLATIONS AT CANCELLATIONS.COM. 

Events, programs and leagues offered by Brandon Township Parks & Recreation are subject to change at any time. Many programs take place at Brandon School District facilities and are subject to unavoidable school district schedule adjustments. Participants will be notified of schedule changes in advance whenever possible. Every attempt will be made to reschedule cancelled dates within the parameters of the program. When classes become cancelled in Brandon School District for any reason, Brandon Township Parks & Recreation youth programs are considered cancelled as well. Participants may not receive notification from the recreation office in the event of an unscheduled school district closure.

To avoid unnecessary makeup dates and program extensions for outdoor programs, the recreation department often does not determine weather or conditional cancellations during office hours. Weather and condition cancellations are determined by program site directors and field personnel after 5:00 p.m. If thunder or lightning becomes evident during an outdoor program participants should immediately take cover in a building or vehicle. Do not take cover in baseball dugouts or near metal fencing. Should lightning, thunder or heavy rains persist after 15 minutes, the event is considered cancelled. If conditions have cleared, the event may continue. In the absence of thunder or lightning, recreational programs may meet during periods of light rain. As a parent, if you feel that conditions are not suitable for your child to participate, do NOT send your child to the program. Programs organized by Brandon Township Parks & Recreation are recreational in nature and do not penalize participants for absenteeism. Please note that refunds are not issued for absences. 

Makeup Dates
Makeup dates for many programs are published with the original program descriptions and schedules. Should additional program adjustments or makeup dates become necessary, this information will be communicated directly to head coaches and/or program site directors. Head coaches and program site directors subsequently communicate the information to participants. Forfeited games and coach cancellations are not rescheduled. 

Refund Policy

Registration fees become nonrefundable after the registration deadline. If requested in advance of the program registration deadline, refunds are processed in the amount of the paid registration fee less a $15 administrative fee. Refunds are NOT issued for absenteeism or for dates cancelled due to weather, field conditions, facility availability, or participant scheduling conflicts. Prorated injury refunds are calculated based upon the date the recreation office receives direct notification of the injury by either the injured adult participant or by a parent/legal guardian of the injured minor participant, and are not based upon the injury date. Refund checks are made payable to the signer of the registration form and mailed to the participant address as listed on the registration form. Checks are mailed within two weeks of refund approval. Registration fees for programs cancelled due to low registration numbers are always refunded in full.
