If you have a child with a disability, we would greatly appeciate your feedback from if you attended any prgrams in 2017-2018, and input on future programming ideas. CLICK HERE to begin.
Attention current WebTrac users: Every 2 years the City requires WebTrac users to re-verify residency in person. If you have not registered for a class/program since August 2016, your username & password are no longer valid. To be reset in the system, you must come in person to a Community Center, Tennis Center, or Sugar Sand Field House to re-activate your Webtrac account. You must bring proof of residency at that time to continue to receive resident rates for online registrations.
