Registration and Payments: If you have never participated in a Parks and Recreation sponsored program, creating an account on-line or at Alki Community Center would be ideal.

Remember: All families will need to attend a Program Orientation session as well as complete a Medical Authorization E-13, Behavior Contract, and Off-Site Permission Slip prior to participating in any Enrichment on Alki program. Who Can Register: All classes are open first to Alki Elementary School families as well as children in the broader West Seattle community. Seattle Parks and Recreation operates activities which are open to anyone interested in participating, regardless of the school they attend.

A Scholarship Application must be submitted for approval prior to receiving any discounted or reduced fees for a class. Full payment must be received if a scholarship request is pending in order for your child to participate. Unfortunately, we cannot take partial payments for any of our programs. OH NO! My class got cancelled! Most programs require a minimum of 4-5 participants in order to make them financially sustainable. We do our best not to cancel classes and we will often delay the start of a program in order to reach the minimum numbers for enrollment, but there is no guarantee. Please register early!
