Online Registration

With an Internet connection, you can now register for recreation programs, activities, and athletics, as well as reserve various facilities throughout the city. The system also allows for financial transactions, reducing and in some cases eliminating the need to leave your home during the registration process.

Important Things to Remember

  • If this is your first time registering with the City of Charleston Recreation Department and you are creating a new household, please allow at least 48 hours to be approved and eligible to register.
  • If you are in our RecTrac system for any registered activity including youth and adult sports, aquatics, tennis, etc. you have been assigned a username and password for online registration. If you are having trouble retrieving it or it was registered under a different email address, please see Troubleshooting Options beloe. If you still have issues, please send an email to Recreation Staff and they will help you reset/retrieve your information.
  • For most City of Charleston activities and programs, pre-registration is required as spots are limited. To assure your spot, register early and avoid late fees!
  • If you are unable to find an activity, program, or sport on our registration site or website, you can call your area facility and request the Activity Number.
  • Scholarship applications (PDF) must be submitted at least one month prior to the registration deadline for the program they wish to attend. Applicants must be City of Charleston residents and meet all requirements for the program.
  • WebTrac, our online registration site, is currently not compatible with Mac computers and the Firefox firewall. Registration is also accepted in person at any City of Charleston Recreation facility.
