Register Early!

Register early to avoid being disappointed!  If a class does not reach the minimum enrollment 7 days before the start date, it risks being cancelled!  Programs will be filled on a first come, first served basis. All programs have a minimum and a maximum enrollment.   If a class is filled, waiting lists will be formed and every attempt will be made to accomodate persons on that list
