About Rec Check
What is Rec Check?
Rec Check is a free after-school program for youth in grades 1–5 provided at the recreation centers listed below. Rec Check is open for youth who live or attend school in Saint Paul.
When is it held?
Rec Check is offered weekdays from 2 - 6 p.m. on days when Saint Paul Public Schools (SPPS) have classes in session. (For programming when SPPS is not in session, visit our No School Days webpage.)
Children participate in a variety of structured, supervised activities that are recreation focused. These may include arts and crafts, community building games, quiet time, and more. To promote health and fitness, staff will engage the youth daily in physical activity. A daily snack is also provided.
How do I register?
Registration will open three weeks prior to the session starting. Registration is available online or over the phone by calling the recreation center directly. (A list of sites and contact information is available in the FAQs below.) A list of session dates are below and participants will be required to register for the specific days that they wish to attend within those sessions. Rec Check enrollment will be limited to 28-30 youth per site with a 1:14 staff to participant ratio. Registration is taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
While Rec Check is divided into sessions, reservations are taken on a rolling basis (pending availability). You can register online at anytime or contact the location you wish to register for more information.
