Parks and Recreation Registration Information

All registrations (unless otherwise indicated) are handled through the Parks and Recreation Department Office, the Alf Sorensen Community Center (for classes held there and adult sports leagues), and at the Larry D. Johnson  Community Center (for programs and classes held at the facility). Classes fill quickly, so early registration is advised. Registration is on a  first-come, first-serve basis. All fees are due and payable upon registration. Unless indicated, fees are  for the entire session, rather than on a per class basis.


Try our convenient 24-hour online registration system. All you need is your household I.D. number and a VISA, MASTERCARD or DISCOVER with expiration date. To obtain your I.D. number, e-mail recinfo@cityofsparks.us or call (775) 353-2376. Be prepared to provide the first/last name of each member in your household, their respective birth dates, address, and phone number. Once you have your Household I.D. number you can register online by using that number for both your user name and password. Please note: Use of  mobile devices/tablets not recommended for this system.

Proof of residency is required on all registrations claiming Sparks residency rates. You are a resident if you reside within the City of Sparks boundaries. Having a Sparks mailing address does not necessarily mean you reside within the city limits. Acceptable forms of proof are:

• Copy of driver’s license (as long as it shows current physical address) and copy of sewer bill or power bill (showing the person’s name and service address).


In an effort to decrease costs, registration receipts are e-mailed. Receipts also  can be accessed/printed through our online registration system at sparksrec.com  under “My Account.”



We offer youth scholarship assistance to cover program fees for children who cannot otherwise participate in programs due to financial limitations. Please call the Recreation Office at (775) 353-2376  to learn more about this special program.

Cancellation requests may be made in person at the Recreation Office (98 Richards Way) or at any recreation center, by email to recinfo@cityofsparks.us, or by phone. You can download a cancellation  request form at sparksrec.com or obtain one at any recreation facility. No refund, credit or prorating will be given for any part of a session, daily or  weekly, once it has begun. Exceptions may be made for verified medical issues/family emergencies (verification must be attached to the request) and considered on a case-by-case basis by the program supervisor and/or Director of Parks and Recreation. Full refunds may be granted if a  cancellation request form is submitted a minimum of 14 days prior to the program start date. No check refunds will be issued if a registration  is paid by credit card. If a cancellation request form is submitted less  than 14 days prior to the program start date, the refund will be issued as  household credit only, less a $3 processing fee. The $3 processing fee is deducted from the original registration payment. Please keep in mind the $3 processing fee is applicable per each cancellation/transfer request made.
