How To Register

pastarchives

Website registration is required for making on-line bookings, viewing club policies and downloading child admissions forms.

Don't worry it's quite painless and takes less time than making a cup of coffee.

There are just a few steps

  1. Register Now
  2. Fill out the requested information. If you are an existing club user, tick the box. We'll already have details of your registered children and bookings, but feel free to include them anyway.
  3. You'll then be sent an email [to prove you are a real person and not a pesky spammer]. Click the link in the email.
  4. Now you have to wait for us I'm afraid. We'll be as quick as we can, usually within 24 hours. Once we've done our stuff you'll be sent another email notifying you that your website account is active.

5. There's then one further step, which is to pay the £10 per child, registration fee. You can do this on-line using the Registration Fee link that you'll see on the ADMIN MENU once logged in to the website. You can of course pay this in person at your OOSC club. We'll then update your web account so you can use the Occasional Booking System; you'll get an email to let you know when this is done.
