  1. some of the classes (swimming) open for registration on Monday 8/17 and are not currently listed under active montgomery but are under recweb. Come Monday do I register under RecWeb or Active Montgomery? If active montgomery, will the classes not listed now be listed then?

    1. Recreation Department staff report the following: All of the classes, including swim programs, should be visible on the ActiveMONTGOMERY site now. This morning, last minute preparations were being completed, and not all programs were visible. We appreciate your question!

  2. Will the recweb site be phased out? If so, when will it go off line? Finally, is there no way to migrate account info from the original sites to ActiveMontgomery? Existing users need to re-register? Thanks!

    1. The Recreation Department replies that ActiveMONTGOMERY has replaced RecWeb, effective August 17. Users will need to create new accounts, but once that has been done, they will realize the features and benefits of the new system.

      Anyone with a question about their account may call the Recreation Department Customer Service line at 240-777-6840.
