Registration Policy

Please Register Early

Number of participants in a program is limited and registrations are taken on a “first-paid, first-served” basis. Also, if a program does not have sufficient number of participants registered by three working days prior to the beginning of the program, the program will be cancelled.

Registering On-Line/Completing a Registration Form

You can now register for our programs by clicking on the Register Now tab at the top of this page.  You’ll be prompted to sign in or create an account, then you can register for any available program. Please be sure to review your account information to keep details updated. You can also register in the CBRC office at 2101 5th Avenue for any program.  Everyone must pre-register for our programs. CBRC instructors are not permitted to accept registrations or payments at the program site on the first day of the program.  The program may be filled.


If you are registering online, you will be paying  for the program with a credit card.  Registrations in the CBRC office require payment of fees accompany all registration forms.  No registration is accepted without payment.  Please use separate checks for each program for which you are registering.  Do not mail cash. Make checks payable to CBRC.  Cash, checks, VISA and Master Card are accepted at the CBRC office.  There are normally discounted rates for program costs if you register before a stated deadline.  We cannot guarantee choice of building or field for registrations received after the stated deadline.
