Mailing in Registration Form & Payment

When mailing in your registration form (PDF) you can use your credit or debit card (include account number, expiration date, and security code) or pay by check. Please include a separate check for each class you are registering for. This will allow us to return your check if the class you are registering for is full, while still enabling us to enroll you in those classes that are available. You will receive a copy of your receipt for your records. Instructors will not take money at the class and cannot accept you into a class until you have registered, paid, and presented a copy of your receipt to them.

Returned checks will be assessed a service charge of $25. Participants must preregister for all programs. It is the participant’s responsibility to attend the activity or call to verify their enrollment if a receipt is not received. Registration and payment for one session does not guarantee enrollment in subsequent sessions.

Proof of residency (a driver’s license or utility bill) is required at the time of registration. Residents are defined as those who reside in Seaside and all active and retired military and their dependents with valid I.D. cards. Please advise us of your military status at the time of registration. Non-residents are defined as residents of all other cities. Non-residents are charged a slightly higher fee.

Refund Policy 

Once a class starts no refunds are given. Refunds will be issued prior to the start of the class once a written cancellation request is received by the Recreation Department. A $7 fee is charged per class, per person. For classes that were originally paid for by credit card, a credit will be issued to that same credit card. For classes originally paid for by check or cash, a refund check will be issued through the Finance Department.

Medical refunds must be requested prior to the end of the class session for which you are registered and accompanied by a written medical excuse from a doctor.


Activities without the minimum enrollment will be cancelled or combined. If the activity, class, or trip is cancelled the City of Seaside will issue you a full refund. Refunds $5 and under will be credited to your household account to be used toward future class registration.
