FAQ

Where can I register?

What if I missed the registration deadline?

  • If you missed the deadline, you would have to call the Youth Sports Office at (707) 469 – 4035 or email YouthSports@cityofvacaville.com and ask to be placed on the waitlist for the requested program. Waitlisted participants will be placed on teams that have available spots. There is no guarantee that your child will be placed on a team or that any friend requests will be honored. If your child is placed on a team, the Youth Sports office will call you and let you know that you can register from that point on. A $20 late fee applies for late registration. Late registration (once approved by the Youth Sports Office) can only be completed at any of the community centers in Vacaville. You cannot register online past the deadline.
