Registration Frequently Asked Questions

1. Do I have an online registration username and password?
If you or anyone in your household has participated in any program with us in the last six years, you already have a household account. 

  • If you are unsure if you have an account, click the "Login" link at the top of the online registration home screen, click the “If you have an account with us, but you’ve forgotten your username, please click here”, and type in your email address. 
    • If you have an account, your username will be emailed to you.
    •  If you type in an email address that is not in our system, you will receive an error message.  Try old email addresses to be sure you do not already have an account.  
  • If you do not have an account, click "If you are a brand new patron with us, please click here to register for a new account" to create an account. Recreation and Parks department staff must authorize all new accounts before they are activated. If you already have an account and create a new one, the new account will be declined by department staff. 

2. What is my username and password? 

  • If you registered before January 25, 2021, your default username is the household’s Recreation and Parks Department’s user ID.   
  • If you registered after January 25, 2021, your default username is the household email address used to create the account.
  • If you have forgotten your password, click the link “If you have an account with us, but you’ve forgotten your password, please click here.” on the login screen. 


3. Am I resident or a non-resident? 

A resident is a person living inside the limits of the City of Falls Church, who pays taxes to the City of Falls Church. Many of our neighbors have a Falls Church mailing address but are not located within City limits and pay taxes to Fairfax County or Arlington County, so qualify as non-resident households. * Please note that your new household request will default as a non-resident.  If your address is within the City of Falls Church, our staff will correct your residency status when we approve your household account. 

4. How do I create an account? 
On the online registration home page, click the “SIGN IN/REGISTER” button at the top right of the screen. You will be prompted to enter your account information, including the primary contact for your household’s account and additional family members. Please allow up to 72 hours for your account to be activated, which will allow you to register online for programs. 

Be sure to add all members of the household that might enroll in a program. If you did not add a family member at the time your household was created or have a new family member (congratulations!), please email our office (Recreation@fallschurchva.gov) with the full name, date of birth and gender of the household member to add.  You will not be able to do this online. 

You also may create an account in person at the Falls Church Community Center during normal operating hours or by calling us at 703-248-5027 (TTY711). If you create an account in person or over the phone, your account will be active immediately.
