Rules of the J
Our members value the uniqueness of a community center that integrates Jewish programming with athletic and recreational activities, in a convenient location. Few programs can match the professionalism, organization and commitment of the JCC and its staff. The Kaiserman JCC members enjoy access to our outstanding facilities and programs. Members also receive discounts and priority registration for classes and programs. Below are the rules and regulations that accompany membership.
Extended Guest Policy
To accommodate out-of-town visitors, an Extended Guest Pass is available for one month at $79 per person. We define an out-of-town guest as someone who lives more than 75 miles from the Kaiserman JCC.
For out-of-town guests who hold valid JCC memberships in their own cities, the first two weeks at the Kaiserman JCC are free.
All members, regardless of membership type, must give 30 days written notice to cancel a membership. Members will be required to pay membership dues for these months while your cancellation is being processed. You are welcome to continue to use the facility until your membership is cancelled. NO REFUNDS GIVEN.
Cancellations and Refunds
CANCELLATIONS: A program with insufficient enrollment will be cancelled and the entire fee refunded. If a class appears under-enrolled, the JCC will attempt to advise registrants one week in advance.
REFUNDS: If you cancel your class registration prior to the first class, you will receive an 80% refund in the form of a credit on your account at the JCC. If you cancel after the first class has met, you will receive a 60% credit on your JCC account. No refunds will be given after the class has met two or more times. Credits issued for programs and classes must be used within one year.
MEMBERSHIP DUES: Dues and registration fees are not refundable or transferable except under extraordinary circumstances as determined by the JCC. Membership fees paid in one lump sum are payable by cash, check, Visa, Mastercard or Discover. Memberships with monthly installment plans are payable by credit or debit card only. There is a $30 fee for all returned checks. If a check is returned or if we are unable to process your credit card payments, you will be denied access to the JCC until payment arrangements are made.
CLASSES: Upon registering for classes, payment must be made in full. We do not accept post dated checks.
Members that refer someone to the JCC who becomes a member will receive a $25 credit on their account to use towards classes or programs.
