Registering for a DARA Program

Registration is open to all residents of the City of DeWitt and DeWitt Charter Township at a discounted rate. We allow non-residents to register for any DARA program with a non-resident charge of an additional $15 over the resident rate.

We encourage you to register early for DARA programs as many programs have a maximum number of available openings. Early registration also helps our staff prepare schedules, team rosters and class information quickly and accurately. Don't be put on a program wait list, register today!!

Registering for DARA programs is quick and easy! The following registration options are available:

Early Registration:

A minimum of three weeks will be allowed for early registration of programs.  Registrations will be accepted on a first come/first served basis with payment.  For programs with limited participant availability, registration will end when the stated available registration spots have been filled with paid registrations.

For youth sports leagues, the number of teams that will comprise the league will be determined following the early registration period and late registrations will be accepted to fill each team with the maximum number of players.

Late Registration:

A limited number of late registrations will be accepted for programs that have not filled up during the early registration period.  Once all teams have the maximum number of players, late registrations will no longer be accepted.  Programs that are not considered athletic leagues will have the maximum number of participants accepted listed on the registration form.

Late registrations will be accepted, as long as spots are available, until 5:00 p.m. the day prior to the second date of the program.  Once the program has met for the second date, registrations will not be accepted. 

Participants registering after the end of early registration may not receive a program t-shirt and this date will be clearly printed on the registration form.

All registrations received during the late registration period will be charged an additional $10.00 fee over the program cost.  Those registering late who will not receive a program t-shirt will have $5.00 deducted from their program registration cost.
