Will all programs and classes be included in the registration system?
Registration on the new CivicRec system includes all NCPRD recreational classes, activities and camps. Youth sports and adult softball will still register using until further notice.

What’s the best way to search for activities/programs?
There are several ways to search for activities and programs! If searching by keyword, keep it simple. i.e. “tai” for Tai Chi Class and “basket” for basketball leagues and activities. Once you’re into a list of activities/leagues, use the search filters on the left to really narrow your search. It’s very easy to search by age, day, time and more!

What time does registration begin?
Registration opens at 9 a.m. on the specified registration date identified for that season. For example, 2018 summer registration is on April 10th at 9 a.m. for NCPRD residents and on April 17th at 9 a.m. for non-residents.

What if I sign up in advance for the wrong class? There is a $5 processing fee for each change to the initial registration purchase.

Can I access receipts for past programs and activities? You will not be able to access any previous transaction records (prior to April 10th) on the new system. If you need receipts for tax purposes, please contact us at

– Click the Transaction History button (on the right side of the page).
– Select the desired receipt from the list of transactions, which will take you to the detailed receipt.
