Registration is open for the Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department's schedule of winter classes and programs. The full winter class and sports schedule is viewable online in the "Classes and Programs" link at Residents can register online 24 hours a day, seven days a week with any major credit card. Participants also can register in person at any community center during normal operating hours.

Parents can register their kids for everything from youth sports leagues and clinics to performing arts to fitness. Adults can choose from an equally wide range of classes, whether they're looking to get active and fit, learn a new skill or just polish up an existing one.

Winter session classes generally go from December through February and boast experienced instructors and convenient times and locations. For thousands of participants each season, classes are a fun way to develop new skills and get active. Information on the classes, parks, preserves and facilities, call (602) 262-6862.
