Registration Information

Welcome to the start of the 2014 Spring/Summer season for Belmont S.P.O.R.T. To make registering for programs easier and to better plan your spring and summer schedules, we will register now for programs through the end of summer. We encourage you to plan ahead. Register early as programs will fill up and space is limited. Be sure to provide us with up to date contact information such as address, phone and e-mail address. These are helpful in allowing us to notify participants of changes and/or cancellations.

 

*IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION*

Family members and staff, always make sure that there is an instructor or coach at a program before you drop off an athlete. Also, please arrive on time to pick up an athlete at the end of a program or event. There should be no instance where an athlete is left unsupervised.
