There are 4 ways to register for a Recreation program. You may register online, mail in the registration form with a check or credit card number to 1500 Walker, Western Springs, IL 60558; fax in the form with a credit card number to (708) 246-1309, or come into the office at 1500 Walker, Western Springs, IL. Phone registration is not accepted.
The Recreation Center gym is available for open gym during regular business hours if not being used by the Recreation Dept. or rented out. The gym schedule is posted by the gym doors and online in real-time on our website. You may also call the Recreation Dept. for open gym times (708-246-9070 x424). Participants must be 10 years or older and sign in at the front desk. Western Springs youth residents (8th grade or younger) are free. High school age and older, residents and non-residents, must show a valid I.D., sign in at the front desk, and pay $5.00 per visit. Discounted Punch Cards are available for $20.00 for 10 uses. There may be a one hour time limit if others are waiting.
The details of our cancellation policy are listed at the beginning of each brochure. In general, a $5.00 cancellation fee will be charged for classes cancelled before the session starts. Once the session starts a prorated percent of the class fee, less a $5.00 cancellation fee and any direct program material costs, will be refunded. No refunds will be issued after the 3rd week of the session or halfway through the class, whichever comes first. If you cancel a class on the day the class starts or meets, you will be charged the prorated fee for that day, in addition to the $5.00 cancellation fee. No refunds for missed classes.
If you are a resident of Western Springs, you must submit proof of residency in order for your account to be activated. Once you provide that, you will receive two emails from the Recreation Department - one with your user name, and one with your password. There will be a link in those emails that takes you directly to the registration site.
If you are a non-resident, your information will be reviewed within 2-3 business days and you will receive two emails from the Recreation Department - one with your user name, and one with your password. There will be a link in those emails that takes you directly to the registration site.
No you cannot; that information can only be changed by Recreation Department staff. The only information you can change online is household contact information, i.e. phone numbers, emails.
This can either mean that online registration has not yet begun; or that the deadline to sign up for a class online has passed (48 hours before a class begins). If you would like to sign up for class that is beginning in less than 48 hours, call the Recreation Department office (708-246-9070) to see if the class is still available, and then submit a registration form (in person, by fax, or by email). We do not accept registrations by phone.
