Answers to FAQs For Online Registration Customers

Q: How do I request a Customer Logon Name and Password for an online registration account?
A: Before registering for activities, you must establish an online registration account and receive your Customer Logon Name and Password. This is how you create an online registration account:

1) Click on the "My Account" button.

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

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 Logon Name and Password once your account has been approved. This email is normally sent to you within 5 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.
