How to Register

  • Download the MEMBERSHIP FORM and REGISTRATION PACKET. (link these to forms) or stop by and pick up the forms.
  • Stop by WSCS at 161 Vermont Street to submit your paperwork and pay the annual $40 Family Membership fee (if applicable). The Family Membership fee entitles your entire family to use of WSCS’s building facilities and programs. If it is difficult for you to pay this fee, simply speak with a member of our staff. We will not turn any youth/family away for inability to pay.
  • Our 2017-18 Program Fee is $40 per month. However, ask if you qualify for a program fee waiver. Any parent, family or child who receives any form of public assistance will not be required to pay the fee. If you do not qualify for a fee waiver but it is difficult for you to pay this fee, simply speak with a member of our staff. We will not turn any youth/family away for inability to pay.
  • Speak with your child’s school about changing his/her bus drop-off location to West Side Community Services at 161 Vermont Street. Let us know when the new bus schedule will begin so we can be ready for your child!
