Important Notice - New Registration System - Please Read


The Borough of Paramus is now using Community Pass, an online registration and payment service for all of its’ Recreation programs and classes.  If you will be registering your children for any upcoming programs over the next year, please follow the below directions to activate your account.

 

As a resident with a current account in the previous registration system prior to 2/1/2016, a Community Pass online account has been established for you and your family.  If your account was created after 2/1/2016, please call the office for assistance.

 

To generate a temporary username and password which would enable you to login, please click the “Forgot my Username or Password” link on this page: https://register.capturepoint.com/ParamusBorough.  Click "Forgot my Username" and then enter the email address we have on file and the system will email the temporary login information.  Please keep in mind this may be a spouse’s email address, a work email address, etc; check whichever inbox normally receives updates about our classes.


 

It is important to activate your account NOW, because Summer/Fall registration begins on May 2nd.  In a few simple steps you will be prompted to change your username and password, and review your account information including the names of your family members.  Remember to save your username and password for future reference. Please note that only one login per family is permitted.

 

Once activated, you will also be ready to register yourself and your family members when an appropriate recreation program becomes available and pay with American Express, Visa or Mastercard.  There will be a $2.00 processing fee when paying by credit card.

 

You will also be able to view your transaction history at any time and print out receipts needed for tax purposes including flexible spending accounts.

assessed starting March 7th. Those programs that have enrollment limitations will accept up

to 50% of their registrations through the online process. Once this quota has been achieved

then the computer will automatically not allow any more online registrations. The reasons

for a 50% limitation are because not everyone has access to a computer and not everyone feels comfortable using their credit cards for online purchases. To register online go to

activities registered for.
