New Lap Swim Registration System!!

 

We are now using a completely online sign up system for lap swim reservations. Through Sign Up Genius you can now pick your lane and time with instant confirmation of availability! Here are some FAQ’s that will help you through the process!

 

Current Sign Up Link:   https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040A44ACAD2DA1FA7-lapswim2

 

Do I need to register with Sign Up Genius to sign up for a lane?

You do not need to register with Sign Up Genius to sign up for a lane. Registering with the website will make it easier to cancel and edit your sign ups, and will make it easier to send out the link each sign up period, however it is not necessary.

 

Will HRD residents still get priority reservations?

Yes! All HRD residents can email pool@highlandsrec.ca.gov with their address. You will receive a code to get into the sign-up system and make your reservations. At 8am on Fridays, that code restriction is taken away and anyone is available to make reservations.

 

How do I know if I am a resident?

The Highlands Recreation District is mainly the Eichler homes that surround the Rec Center. If you are not sure, please send your address to pool@highlandsrec.ca.gov to verify if you live in the District.

 

Will I still be able to sign up others in my household?

 

Unfortunately, the system will only allow 3 reservations per email. This means multiple people will need to make reservations. While this is not an improvement on the previous system, it will allow for more opportunity for more lanes to be available.

 

If a sign up is full, is there a waiting list?

 

The system does not allow for a waiting list. So, if a sign up is full, keep checking back and look for openings and cancellations. If you see an open spot, you can take it immediately.

 

How late can I cancel my reservation?

 

While we are not currently taking pre-payment at this time, we ask that out of courtesy for those who might want to use the space that you cancel up until 24 hours before the reservation date. This will give others the opportunity to fill the space and we don’t have lanes that are not being used.

 

How do I cancel my reservation?

 

If you are already signed up on Sign Up Genius, just log in to your account and edit your sign ups. If you do not have a Sign Up Genius account, click the top of the screen where it says “Change My Sign Up” and follow the directions from there. If you choose not to sign up for Sign Up Genuis, you can take the option of getting a one time link to edit/cancel reservations.
