Answers to FAQs For Online Registration Customers

Q: Why does the City offer a 4% discount on online classes?
A: Although the convenience this system provides is worth the 6% additional cost, the City wants to ensure it is available to as many people as possible, so the discount will cover a portion of the 6% convenience fee registrants are charged to use this online system.
Q: What is the easiest way to find a program if I know the activity name?
A: Advanced search is easy. Click on the small blue line that reads "advanced search" directly above the field that reads "age", near the center of your screen. Once that screen comes up, type in the activity name (or a portion of it) into the top field and hit enter/return on your keyboard.
Q: Why isn't the system accepting my phone number?
A: Please check to see if you are entiring it correctly. The first box is for your area code. The second box is for all 7 digits of your phone number without a dash (7737063). The third box is for an extension. It is a common error for people to put the last four digits of their phone number into the extension box.
Q: How do I request a Customer ID and password for an online registration account?
A: Before registering for activities, you must establish an online registration account and receive your Customer ID and Password. This is how you create an online registration account:

1) Click on the blue Request Account button.
2) Fill out the form for New Account Request completely, including birthdate and click submit. Please submit your request only once.

An Important Note About Registering Children: Use your own information when filling out the online registration account request form, NOT the information of the child you wish to register for an activity. Once you have an online registration account, you will have the opportunity to add family members.

3) You will receive an email containing your Customer ID and Password once your account has been approved. This email is normally sent to you within minutes of requesting an online registration account. Be sure to keep a record of your password. Write down your password as you will need it to register online in the future.
Q: How do I add family members to "My Account"?
A: You may add as many members into your account as necessary.
