Registration tips and improvements

We understand that registering for your desired program is important. We’re currently working to make improvements to ensure registration runs smoothly, especially during the week that registration opens each season. Many of our programs are in high demand which can create a high volume of web and phone traffic during registration week.

We evaluate registration each season and use your feedback to make improvements.

Some of the current improvements in progress include:

  • Improving bandwidth and payment processing for online registration
  • Maximizing the number of phone lines available and staff to assist on registration days
  • Changing registration start time to 7 a.m. to better accommodate work and school schedules
  • Staggering registration start dates for summer camps to better accommodate parents’ ability to plan ahead for summer and reduce demand on the system during registration days
