2017 Winter/Spring Program Guide


Registration for all winter/spring activities is now underway. These classes can be viewed on our online registration pages.  This program guide was mailed to Blue Valley School District residents mid-November.  

Please note - winter/spring registration for youth swim lessons and youth gymnastics began at 6am on Tuesday, December 6, online only for Blue Valley School District residents. The reason for a specific day/time is to give everyone an equal opportunity to enroll in these very popular classes.  All other forms of registration (telephone, walk-in, etc.) and registration for non Blue Valley School District residents (gymnastics and aquatics) began on Wednesday, December 7.

Registration Tips

1. Make sure you know the Email Address you used with your account and your password. (Can't remember your password? Just click on "Forgotten Password" for a reminder prompt.)

2.Confirm all  your family members are entered in your household. (This happens quite frequently, either a child has not taken classes with us before or has been too young to take classes.)

       - You can do this by checking your family members once you log in. Just click on the "Shop" link from the yellow   navigation bar, then selecting "Activity Enrollment."

       - You can verify family members from the drop down list.

 


Frequently Asked Questions

Why do youth aquatics, dance and gymnastics have their own registration at 6am on a Tuesday? These are three of our most popular programs and many classes fill quite quickly. Registration is held on a specific day and at 6am so that everyone, including those families with both parents working during a regular work day, have an equal opportunity to enroll in a class. All other activities begin registration when the program guide for a given season is mailed to patrons (i.e., summer registration for programs other than the three listed above begins when the summer program guide is mailed to patrons - typically mid-March).

Do I need a customer account before registering online? 
Yes. You will need to request a customer account, assign a password and submit the information for approval. This may take up to 48 hours to complete.

Whose name should I use on the customer account?
The customer account should be registered in the name of the person who will pay for any registrations. We request the date of birth field is completed for security purposes.

Why do I have to create a question and answer for my password?

When registering online, when is an enrollment confirmed?
Enrollment is confirmed when the payment is processed. However, once you accept an opening in a program and register an individual for that opening, you will “hold” that opening until your payment is processed.

What happens if I click on the "Continue" button more than once?
Multiple clicks on the "Continue" button will result in multiple charges to your credit card through ETS. Please be patient while your payment is submitted.

Is my credit card information secure?
Yes, Blue Valley Rec uses 128-bit SSL to encrypt all payments.

If the class that I want is full, can I place my name on the wait list?
Yes, you may place a participant’s name on the wait list of a class that you are interested in. If there are other classes within that program that you are also interested in, you may add a name on the wait list for a maximum of three classes. For example, you may add a child’s name to the wait list of Tiny Tots gymnastic classes a total of three times.

Can I add my name to a wait list and enroll in another class for the same activity? 
We ask that you either add your name to the wait list(s) or enroll in a class – not both.
