BPRD staff recommend preparations can include adding programs to your Wish List in the online registration account and noting opening dates of the programs you’re interested in.

“Summer registration opening is our busiest season of the year, including summer camps, additional swim lesson sessions, popular adult sports leagues and more,” said Matt Mercer, recreation services director. “It’s also important to note the opening of our largest youth fall sports program – soccer. While soccer begins in the fall, registration opens now and it fills to new record-setting capacities each year.”
