Mission Statement

Our Mission is to provide an extensive and varied recreational program, enhancing personal enrichment, and providing for the community’s leisure needs. The activities and services shall include, but not be limited to: recreational and enrichment activities for all ages, youth and adult sports programs ( non competivitive and competitive), and activities for special populations.

Resident/Non-Resident

To receive the resident rate you must reside within the cities of Rochester or Rochester Hills. RARA is funded through a millage collected in the city of Rochester Hills and a comparable fee in the city of Rochester. Residency is not connected with the Rochester School District. Residency is determined by where you pay your city taxes. The current non-resident fee is $20 per program for children and $28 per program for adults. Non-Resident fees are not charged for Special Events.

Notice to Participants

Participants must recognize that all classes/ activities of a physical nature involve some risk, and by registering for a class/activity of this nature there is an assumption of risk by the participants. RARA is dedicated to providing safe equipment as well as qualified staff for all participants. In the event of a serious accident or illness, it is the policy of RARA to: 1. Contact emergency medical services to perform first aid, and when necessary, recommend transport of the victim to the hospital. 2. Reach the parent/guardian/emergency contact as soon as the situation allows.

Cancellation of Activities

This landmark civil rights act went into effect in 1992. It is a significant step forward to make our society’s services and opportunities fully available to all Americans by combating barriers and prejudices that confront those of us with disabilities. RARA is committed to implementing the intent and spirit of this legislation. Those who may need assistance in order to participate and enjoy our programs should contact our staff at least two weeks in advance of registration to discuss any necessary accommodations or concerns. Persons with disabilities are invited to participate in all programs offered through RARA, We hope that with our assistance , you will be able to create lifelong memories in our community.

All RARA activities are cancelled when the Rochester Community Schools are closed due to inclement weather. In addition, cancellation of programs will be determined by program supervisors as seen fit. Cancellations will be posted on the www.rararecreation. org home page, as an automated message on our phone system, and for some programs, registered participants will be notified via email.

Refunds

All programs cancelled by RARA will be refunded in full. Participants requesting a refund must submit a refund request in writing at the RARA Community Center, 500 E Second Street. Refunds will be charged a minimum $5.00 processing fee. Refund amounts will be determined on an individual program basis and requestors will be notified if additional fees are assessed. All refunds will be issued by check once the fees have been assessed.

Naming & Sponsorship Opportunities Our Mission is to provide an extensive and varied recreational program, enhancing personal enrichment, and providing for the community’s leisure needs. The activities and services shall include, but not be limited to: recreational and enrichment activities for all ages, youth and adult sports programs and activities for special populations. In the furtherance of this mission, RARA is faced, more frequently as time passes, with the need for additional funds for assistance with enhancement, maintenance and operations of RARA facilities and programs. In a time of shrinking public dollars, RARA seeks outside funding through sponsorships in order to maintain valuable and important programs and facilities, as we continue to provide thousands of programs each year to over two hundred thousand area residents. RARA has designed a sponsorship program that will enhance the ability to deliver recreation services as long as the services and products of those businesses are consistent with and appropriate to RARA’s mission and lines of business. Our sponorship opportunities include: • Naming Rights - Field House • Naming Rights - Dance Studio • Naming Rights - Multipurpose Wing • Legacy Rights - Dance Rooms 1, 2, 3, & 4 • Sponsorships - Sports, Programs, Special Events
