For Community Members
*Please note: All registration is ONLINE ONLY. No in-person registration will be accepted.
For S.Y.A.P. 2016, we have a new registration site run by ACTIVE. If you have ever used ACTIVE to register for any other event (e.g. 5k runs) and created an account with them in the process, you will be required to use that account to register for S.Y.A.P. If you are anything like us, it is possible that you have done this and forgotten either your username or password (or both). To save time (thus increasing your chances of getting your child into our wildly popular program), click on the link above and reset your username/password. You may also create an ACTIVE account at this time if you do not have one. PLEASE NOTE: this process is for participant account creation only, and does not guarantee space for your child(ren) in the program.

Payments and Accounts
CLICK HERE to access your Thriva Account from 2015. Please note - we are moving to a new system and will no longer be using Thriva.
There is a $250 NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT PER SESSION/PER CHILD REQUIRED AT THE TIME OF REGISTRATION. Deposits will be applied to the total sum of your balance; All balances must be paid in full by Friday, April 22, 2016. Balances may be paid in person, mailed to the Recreation Center or paid through your online account.
All non-deposit refund requests must be submitted in writing (e-mail). Refunds may be available for an extended illness of five or more consecutive program days. A doctor's note and explanation of the situation must be received within eight working days from the first absence. Upon review, participants may receive a $25/day refund for the unused days.
Refunds are not available for vacations, special events, short-term illnesses of four days or fewer, or other personal commitments that prevent attendance.
We reserve the right to revoke the registration of any child who consistently disrupts normal activities. While this is a rare occurrence, it is important to note that consistent disruptions diminish the experience of the other participants. No refund will be made if a child is dismissed from the program.
Due to administrative costs, a $40 fee is charged for transferring between sessions per child, per session. Transfers must be done in person at the Recreation Center Office, located on the second floor of the Recreation Center above the Wellness Center, at least three working days prior to the start of the session. The transfer fee must be paid at the time the request is made. Transfers are based on space availability and are made at the discretion of the Recreation Center Staff. Children may give their spots only to siblings or step-siblings. Programs are not transferable to anyone outside the immediate family. Split sessions are not available.
