Pima Co. streamlines registration for programs, starting with summer session

PIMA COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Beginning next week a new online registration will open up for Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation summer recreation programs.

"This online process is fast and convenient and there's no more waiting in the lottery draw for classes," Kelly Cheeseman, recreation program manager, explained.

Online registration starts on March 28 at 6 a.m. and is on a first-come, first-served basis as space in classes is limited.  There will be two summer sessions: June 6 to July 1 and July 5 to July 29, there is a second session for Littletown from July 6 to 22.

In order to register online for the summer sessions, families will need to create a profile in the Active Net system prior to registration and only one account is needed.  They can do that by clicking here.  Parents are encouraged to create their account before March 28. Registration at the class site will not be accepted.

Note also that all 5-year-olds must have completed kindergarten to enroll in the summer recreation program. Families will need to attend one of two mandatory orientations. Those orientation dates and times are listed on each registration page.

Starting with summer recreation, all of the future youth-based recreation programs will be by online registration only.

Registration for session 1 of the afterschool program will begin on July 1 at 6 a.m., and registration for the KAPP preschool program will begin on Aug. 1 at 6 a.m. These programs are not visible yet but the registration dates have been established.
