Mail-in registrations will be processed in the order in which they were received. If you come to register in person, you may register only for members of your immediate family.

REGISTRATION ELIGIBILITY & FEES
Village residents (VBMR) and Briarcliff Manor School District (BMSD) residents are eligible for all programs & services offered through the Recreation Department, including Pool & Tennis Permits and Day Camp programs. Fees vary according to residency, and the following codes are used to indicate the appropriate fees for program participants:
VBMR = Village of Briarcliff Manor Residents BMSD = Briarcliff Manor School District Residents In certain situations, select individual programs may also be open to other non-resident (NONR) participants.
This is done for the sole purpose of supplementing resident participation numbers when doing so helps to ensure program operation or improvement of the program experience. When eligible, non-resident registration forms will be held for one week after the first date of registration, at which time they will be processed on a first-come, first-served, space available basis. Non-resident eligibility and fees are indicated within program information by the code – NONR.
ENROLL EARLY !
For most of our programs to be conducted, a minimum enrollment number must be reached. In addition, many programs have a maximum enrollment number due to factors such as facility size and instructor requirements. For these reasons, we register participants on a first-come, first-served basis, and almost always set “Register by” dates. We encourage individuals to register early!
ONLINE REGISTRATION with WebTrac
To utilize our online registration system, please click on the link provided on the Recreation page of the Village website at www.briarcliffmanor.org. If any member of your family has registered for a program or permit with us in the past, a unique “Household ID” number has already been created for you within our RecTrac registration database. This Household ID number serves as both your initial user name and password the first time that you login to register online. Once you have accessed the system, you will be able to reset your user name and password to whatever you wish. If you have never registered with us before, you will be able to create a new household in the WebTrac system which we will then verify and approve within 2 business days in order for you to utilize the online registration system. If you do not know your Household ID number, or have forgotten your password after changing it during a previous WebTrac session, please call our office at 941-6560 and we will be happy to help you and answer any additional questions you may have.
When you log on to the site, please make sure you review & update all of the information in the system pertaining to your household and each of your family members. Please pay particular attention to items such as phone numbers, birthdates, grade levels, emergency contact information and the primary e-mail address you would like associated with your account. If you have any questions or problems, don’t hesitate to give us a call!
CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS – FEE POLICY
Please be advised that all credit card or affiliated debit card charges made to the Village of Briarcliff Manor incur an additional 2.5% charge that is passed on to the card user. This is done to cover bank fees associated with accepting payments by these methods and a requirement of law that prohibits the Village from absorbing these transaction fees. This means that all WebTrac payments will include this additional fee, as will all credit card transactions processed at the Recreation Department Office. This fee will appear as a separate transaction on your credit card or bank statement.
The Village of Briarcliff Manor incurs additional administrative costs and bank fees when checks are returned due to insufficient funds. The fee for all returned checks is $20 as established by the Village Board of Trustees.
Programs must sometimes be cancelled due to weather conditions and other situations that occasionally arise.
The Recreation Department strives to notify participants of these instances in a timely fashion and will utilize such methods as phone calls, e-mail messages, and posted notices to the Village website in an effort to reach you. In addition, the phone message system at the Recreation Office is updated when cancellations occur and individuals can check the status of programs by calling the office at 941-6560.
Generally, programs are not held when school is not in session. Cancelled classes and program sessions are normally made up at the end of the program season and every effort is made to provide participants with full value for the programs they register for.
The Village of Briarcliff Manor does not issue refunds unless a program has been cancelled due to insufficient enrollment. If this occurs, all fees paid, including credit card charges, will be refunded back to the enrollee. Registrants assume full responsibility for any changes in their personal life, which may affect their ability to participate.
In rare cases, a participant may encounter an unforeseeable, and unavoidable, situation that they feel may warrant a refund of fees paid. These situations will be reviewed on an individual basis by the Superintendent, who will then make a refund determination. A processing fee of $25.00 will be retained by the Village in all cases that refunds, or partial refunds, are granted.
The Village of Briarcliff Manor maintains a standard liability insurance policy that does not cover medical costs for anyone injured during the normal course of participation in any Recreation Department program or at any Village facility. All persons participate at their own risk.

Images of participants engaging in Briarcliff Recreation sponsored activities may be used in flyers and brochures and may also be displayed on the Village website and in online publications.

Participants are expected to exhibit appropriate behavior at all times while engaging in activities and programs conducted by the Village.
