Program & Activity Registration Information
In order to accommodate all participants, we have three different ways to register for programs and activities:
- Confirmation of registration is emailed or mailed within five business days. If a class is full, a wait list is generated and individuals on the wait list will be contacted if a space becomes available. If you do not receive a confirmation, please call the Registration & Reservation Office to confirm status of registration at 703.746.5414.
- Due to the volume of class registrations, we regret that drop-off registrations are not processed immediately. Staff reserves the right to cancel a class that does not meet minimum registration numbers.
