South Euclid-Lyndhurst Recreation

A Tradition in the Hillcrest Community Since 1946

Striving to meet the recreational needs of the residents

of the South Euclid-Lyndhurst School District, SELREC has

grown into a Recreation/Community Education hybrid,

offering over 500 classes and programs designed to

enhance your active lifestyle.

SELREC seeks to build a sense of community from among

a diverse population based on common interests, values

and the social and recreational needs of our residents.

The variety of activities offered is in response to the

interests of our community. Good health, friendships

and opportunities for sharing family time are all endless

benefits of recreation.

The YMCA of Greater Cleveland is proud to collaborate

with SELREC.

UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS

RECREATIONAL PARTNERSHIP

The recreational partnership between SELREC and

the City of University Heights allows all University

Heights residents to register for any SELREC classes,

camps and programs at the South Euclid-Lyndhurst

resident rate. The City of University Heights will then

reimburse SELREC for the difference between the

resident and non-resident fees.

SELREC/Hillcrest Family YMCA Policies

Eligibility

Registration is open to all residents of the South

Euclid-Lyndhurst School District and University Hts

as well as members of the Hillcrest Family YMCA.

All others are considered non-residents and will

pay a minimum of at least $5 per class surcharge

(non-resident rate). Residents are encouraged to

register early as some programs have a tendency

to fill quickly and we do register on a first comefirst

served basis regardless of residency, unless

otherwise noted under the actual program.

Attendance Policy

Your inability to attend a class because of a change

in personal circumstances does not warrant a

refund. YMCA Program credits will be issued only

for extended illness and/or injury documented and

signed by a physician. Credits will not include the

cost of any materials and/or supplies purchased

for students by the instructor for their class.

Fees/Payment

Registration fees for SELREC classes and programs

are payable through either SELREC or the

Hillcrest Family YMCA and must be paid in full prior

to the first scheduled class. SELREC instructors

cannot and will not accept registration forms and/

or fees at the program site. Early registration and

payment is critical for the viability of these classes

and for assurance of your spot in the class or

program. SELREC or the YMCA reserve the right

to accept or deny registrations if they are received

late. You may pay by cash, personal check, money

order, Visa, Master Card or Discover for any

program. All credit card charges are subject to

authorization by charge card center. If you charge

programs by phone, you acknowledge that you

have read and fully understand the refund policy.

Returned Check Policy (NSF)

In accordance with the rules established by the

National Automated Clearing House Association

(NACHA), SELREC has chosen to utilize electronic

collection of checks returned for insufficient

funds (NSF). Such checks will be submitted electronically

through the Automated Clearing House

(ACH) Network for redeposit and the check writer’s

account will be debited for both the face amount

of the check and a returned check fee!

Confirmation/Cancellation

We do not mail confirmations for class enrollments.

We will make every attempt to notify you in

advance if a class is cancelled, changed, or if your

registration is received after a class is already full.

If enrollment is insufficient for any particular class,

the class will be cancelled and fees will be refunded

in full within 4 to 6 weeks after cancellation.

SELREC reserves the right to cancel, combine or

divide classes, to change time, day, date, or place

of meeting, to change the instructor assignments,

and to make revisions in these offerings.

Non-endorsement Policy

Instructors used by SELREC are contracted or

hired because they have a special skill or talent

which they are willing to share with our communities.

Please note however, SELREC does not

endorse the opinions or business affiliations of

our instructors/contractors.

Liability

We do not provide insurance for program participants.

You must be aware that participation in

activities can sometimes result in injuries, understand

the risks to these activities, and make no

claim or demand against the YMCA, SELREC, the

City of South Euclid, the City of Lyndhurst, and/or

the SE-L Board of Education or their agents and

employees in the event of accidental occurrence.

Children/Siblings

Children are not allowed to accompany you to

adult classes. Also, unregistered siblings are not

permitted to attend youth or teen classes. High

school students may register for most SELREC

adult classes provided they are held in the SE-L

school district locations.

Senior Citizens

Adults ages 60 and over may pay the senior fee

when noted. All other classes which do not list a

separate senior fee are available at the full fee.

Inclement Weather Cancellations

When the South Euclid-Lyndhurst City Schools

are not in session or are dismissed early due to

inclement weather, all daytime, afternoon, and/or

evening SELREC classes being held in any SE-L

building will not be held, regardless of weather

changes. Classes missed due to bad weather or

other “acts of God” will be added on to the end

of the session whenever possible. We, however,

reserve the right to terminate any class with fewer

than the scheduled number of meetings, without

issuing a refund or a credit if we cannot add it on

at the end of the session. Programs held in other

school districts or at the Hillcrest Family YMCA

(i.e. Mayfield, Shaker Hts., or Beachwood) follow

their respective building and/or school closing

schedules.

Accuracy

Our goal is to ensure each brochure is free of

errors; however, there are times when errors in

dates, times, rate or registration/program information

do occur. We will do everything possible to correct

such errors, and we appreciate your patience

and understanding when these situations arise.

Shiatsu Massage for Couples

Learn to give each other a complete, soothing

massage. Shiatsu, or acupressure, creates

a deep feeling of well being, improves

vitality, promotes relaxation, and helps the

body to heal itself. Pressure is applied to

points on the body that correspond to internal

organs, relieving stagnant energy along

the meridians, and returning distressed

organs to a healthy state. Shiatsu is easy

to learn and the results are lasting! Please

bring a mat, pillow and blanket to class.

Riverside Inn

Riverside Inn is everyone’s favorite. This

Cambridge Springs, PA hostelry is situated

on the banks of French Creek and

has been in continuous operation since

1885. The Dixie Swim Club is about five

southern women whose friendships began

many years ago on their college swim

team. Free from husbands, kids and jobs,

they meet at the same beach cottage for

a long weekend every August on North

Carolina’s Outer Banks to catch up, laugh

and meddle in each other’s lives. In Oscar

and Felix, the return of the theatre’s wellknown

“frenemies” is the result of a re-write

by Neil Simon, a faster paced, funnier play

that still attempts to answer the question:

“Can two grown men share an apartment

without driving each other crazy?” Don’t

Hug Me is a love story with singin’ & stuff,

set in a colorful, rustic north woods bar in

Minnesota called “The Bunyan.” The cantankerous

bar owner is ready to sell the

business and move to sunny Florida but

his wife is content on staying. This battle of

wills along with a fast-talking salesman with

a promise of loads of cash, brings a little romance

through the magic of karaoke. Fee

is separate for each show and includes the

performance, bus transportation and lunch.

Depart from and return to the Mayfield Village

Civic Center on Wilson Mills.
