Online Sports Registrations
You must apply for an online account before you register for sports or any activity. We can only respond to your application during normal business hours, and if you apply over the weekend, your account may not be approved until Monday. A high volume of online applications may delay approval for 1-2 business days, so please plan accordingly. Please do not wait until the activity deadline to apply for an account.
Proof of Age
All first time participants in our Sports programs must provide proof of age upon registration. Proof of age is: Birth certificate, passport, military i.d., school i.d. or medical records that indicate the child’s birthdate. (Social Security Cards do not have birthdates and are not acceptable proof.) Thus, if you would like to register your child for a program, and they have never enrolled into a sport program with this department, you will not be allowed to register them for the first time using our online system. You are welcome to register them in person the first time, and then use our online system for all future registrations.
Late fee for Sports Registrations
There will be a $10 late fee for all sports registrations taken after each sport’s appropriate deadline.
