We Have a New Registration Software


Union City Community & Recreation Services is moving to a new online registration program, Rec1. This new software focuses on enhancing the customer experience by providing a 21st century solution to registration and account management online without any additional fees or surcharges! Customers will be able to search for programs and classes by ages, interests and locations, and the new system will electronically notify participants of class changes or cancellations through email or text.

Residents can register for programs, classes and camps, pay account balances, reprint receipts and maintain their family accounts online. Later in 2017, customers will also be able to view facility availability, request park reservations, re-new memberships and access team information for adult sports leagues.

As we make are making transition to our new Rec1 registration system, some customers may need to create a new account either online through the website or at one of the community center offices. We encourage customers to go online, explore the new registration system, and verify if your account is already active. This can be done by searching with your current phone number, e-mail or full name. If you cannot locate your account, you will need to create a new one either online or through a community center office.

 For more information on how to create or to look up your account in Rec1, please call or email any of the community center offices.
