Create Programs (same as events, but no dates) [11793]

We'd like to create "programs"--like events but no dates. Examples are a year-long class, or a team in a youth soccer club. Registration process could be identical to events, with fee levels, add-on costs, discount codes, etc. Why don't we just call these programs "events" and give them a 12-month duration? Because the "Programs" offerings should be displayed and promoted in a separate page or section and organized by category instead of by date. Registration process is the same but the user-concept is different: for ex., a member should be able to join a soccer team in mid-season, but displaying it on a calendar with a September start date front-and-center will imply to most members that they can't do that.

        We would LOVE this. But I need a 'program' to be treated like an event. We track the events our members attend, as well as activities they do throughout the year. For our club, we need to view/report/track these events all together - ie non-dated activities should be allowed as Events.

        For the calendar view, they could show up in a separate area, since they are not date dependent.

        Additional info on programs:

        Payment for year-long program = $250 on registration + 12 monthly installments of $65

        I would appreciate comments from other users.

        About programs - does it really make sense to consider them together with events? Maybe a better concept is 'subscriptions' - e.g. currently people can sign up for membership but only one membership is active at the time. I understand that with programs one person can be signed up for multiple programs?
