A NISRA seasonal brochure is the best way to get an idea of all that NISRA has to offer. Call the NISRA office at (815) 459-0737 to obtain a printed brochure, or stop by your park district or recreation department.

A Few Notes About Registration

Priority Registration

Registration is conducted on a first-come, first-served basis. Residents of NISRA’s member districts who register prior to the deadline have priority over out-of-district participants. Out-of-district residents are welcome to register for all programs, however a non-resident fee is charged.

Suggested Ability Level

Although some programs are offered according to disability classifications, these classifications are only considered recommendations. If the participant meets the social, physical, behavioral and age requirements of any program, he or she can register for it.

NISRA also provides assistance to those wishing to participate in their home park district or recreation department program. Types of assistance may include staff training, adapted equipment, sign language assistance or a program aide. Call NISRA or your home district staff to inquire about the inclusion process.
