  • The City of Sacramento will place your class description in our Recreation Catalog which is distributed to more than 20,000 customers two times a year.
  • The City uses a technologically advanced computer registration system.  The “Class” system allows us to maintain facility booking for your class and to process registrations in an efficient manner.  Instructors receive attendance reports, waitlist reports and we maintain the database to provide participant main contacts from all classes.  The system automatically reserves spots for waitlist participants when a cancellation in a class occurs.  Participants can register through the internet for classes and programs.
  • We accept cash, checks, Visa and MasterCard for payments.  We offer registration through five easy customer friendly ways including:  mail, online registration, telephone, fax, or in person.
