Class Brochures

Brochures are mailed to all City of Falls Church residents and non-residents who have participated in programs within the last two years. Please call the Recreation and Parks Department at 703-248-5027 (TTY 711) or send us an e-mail if you would like to join our mailing list. Copies are available at the Community Center, library and City Hall.

Register in Advance

If you would like to participate in a program/trip/event, please register in advance. There is a point when a program must be cancelled if there is insufficient registration. If minimums are not met, we will cancel that program/trip/event. All programs require a high level of coordination often including facility scheduling, staffing, and supplies purchases. Your cooperation will help us provide the best organization and administration of programs.

Class Status

Each class has a minimum and maximum enrollment. Classes will be cancelled a week prior to start if minimum enrollment is not met. Classes and programs that are cancelled due to insufficient enrollment will automatically be issued a household credit. Household credits can be used for other program/class/trip and do not expire. If you would prefer to be refunded to your credit card or a check, please contact us at 703-248-5027 (TTY 711).

Waiting Lists

Waiting lists are created for classes that have reached the maximum enrollment. We'll automatically create waiting lists for all filled classes. Please be sure to sign up if you are interested in a class that is full, because class openings often become available. If demand is high, we will try to form another class. Please contact us for space availability.

Age Requirement

Each class/program has a minimum and/or maximum age requirement. The participant must meet this age requirement by the first day of class unless otherwise noted. 

Brochure Updates

Although we strive to be accurate, the printed brochure is published for information purposes only. Occasionally there may be an error in days, times, registration requirements, or fees in this brochure. When such errors occur, our staff will do everything possible to correct the situation promptly. Changes may be necessary to the content.

Photo Policy

Please be advised that all participants involved in any department programs or special events are subject to being photographed. Pictures are often taken of participants in our programs/events/leagues. Participants permit the taking of photos and videos of themselves and their children during activities, programs, and special events for publication and use as the department deems necessary. We reserve the right to publish these pictures in our publication or website without an obligation of notification or permission.
