Registration Information

Advanced registration is required for most athletic and instructional programs. The first 2 weeks of each registration period is reserved for those residing within the town's corporate limits. After the initial resident registration period, program registration is open to non-residents until the program is filled.

After a program is filled, waiting lists may be established with Apex residents receiving priority. Registration policies are approved by the Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources Advisory Commission and adopted by the Town Council.

Registration for most programs is accepted either by appearing in person, by mail, or by registering online via PEAKconnect. To register, participants must fill out the appropriate registration form, and pay all applicable fees. In addition, some youth athletic programs require a copy of a birth certificate to verify age. All registration is governed by adopted policy. The town reserves the right to refuse registration.

The 1st day of registration for both Apex residents and nonresidents will be held at the Apex Community Center, 53 Hunter Street, starting at 9 a.m. Other than the first day, participants may register during regular business hours at either the Community Center, by mail or online. For more information call the Community Center at (919) 249-3402.

Note:  Please carefully review our refund policy found here prior to registering for our programs.

Lottery System

To avoid long lines and discourage overnight assembly, the first day for registration for both residents and non residents of Apex will be administered by a Lottery System. Promptly at 8:45 a.m., everyone will be given the opportunity to randomly draw a number. Patrons will line up according to their number. Everyone arriving after 8:45 a.m. will go to the back of the line.

Registration will begin promptly at 9 a.m. based on this system. This is for individual program registration only and does not apply to adult team registration deadlines.

Registration Fees

Participation fees vary depending on the program or activity. Fees help recover the cost of instructors, supplies / materials, part-time personnel, and maintenance. Fees are established based on the following recovery schedule:
  • Adult Programs recover 100%
  • Selected Senior Citizen Programs recover 25%
  • Youth and Preschool Programs recover 50%
Contracted instructors set their fees based on their preferred class size. Participants may request a reduction or waiver of their participation fees through a process recommended by the Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources Advisory Commission and adopted by the Town Council. For more information regarding the reduction / waiver of fee policy, contact us in advance of program registration.
