Attention current WebTrac users: Every 2 years the City requires WebTrac users to re-verify residency in person. If you have not registered for a class/program since August 2016, your username & password are no longer valid.  To be reset in the system, you must come in person to a Community Center, Tennis Center, or Sugar Sand Field House to re-activate your Webtrac account.  You must bring proof of residency at that time to continue to receive resident rates for on-line registrations.
