BRECKENRIDGE ” Registering for programs and keeping track of activities will soon become much simpler for users of the Breckenridge Recreation Department, when the Town’s three recreation facilities launch an online service to manage user accounts.
Administered by the San Diego-based Active Network, the new Breckenridge system should be up and running by the end of May, said Town recreation department marketing coordinator Helen Cospolich. Once in place, it will allow users to register online for classes and activities, view all their recreation transactions, make online payments, and print receipts.
“It’s meant to make everybody’s life a lot easier,” Cospolich said.
Users will be able to create secure online accounts on the network, and monitor them from any Internet-enabled computer 24 hours a day. Parents will be able to view youth program details, schedules, and availability and register for them online
All account holders will also be able to see every transaction they’ve ever made with the department, including every Rec Center visit, Cospolich added.
In addition to remote access, the system will eventually provide members with self check-in at the Rec Center, thereby minimizing waits and improving overall flow.
The Active Network, familiar to many as a common site to register for 10K races and triathlons, was founded in 1998 as a web portal to connect regional grassroots sports with recreational athletes. Since then, the company has expanded into marketing and non-sports community site development and administration.
According to its website, Active.com now represents more than 100,000 events and more than 4,000 community organizations. With greater than 12 million registered users, it has been listed by Inc. 500 as one of the fastest growing privately held companies in the nation.
