These include athletic programs, sports, leagues, instructional classes, outdoor recreation, aquatic programs, special events and adaptive recreation for people with special needs. For complete information please take a look at the City of Yuma Parks and Recreation Activity Guide

PROGRAM REGISTRATION:

Program priority registration will be open for City of Yuma residents five days earlier than all other residents of Yuma County, and will continue throughout the fall. On-line registration will begin five days after priority registration for City of Yuma residents for programs not requiring a birth certificate/registration form. Some programs are limited to the number of participants and will close when a program fills. If a class or program you are interested in is full, please ask to be put on a “wait list”. Wait lists will be used should vacancies occur or class expansion is feasible.  Various program fees are discounted for qualifying City of Yuma residents. For the purpose of registration, a Yuma resident is defined as any person living within the corporate limits of the City of Yuma.

CHILDREN’S AGE REQUIREMENTS:

Age requirements have been established to safely facilitate age appropriate classes. Children must be the appropriate age by the first day of class in order to register – no exceptions. Thank you.
