Jefferson Township Recreation began using Community Pass for online registration in September 2016.  So, if you already have a Community Pass account, enter your log in and password, choose “Jefferson Striders Cross Country Fall 2018” under the season “Summer/Fall 2018” and register your child and pay the activity fee.  If you forgot your log in or password, the system will allow you to recover either or both using your email address and reset your password or call the Recreation Department for a temporary password.

If you need to set up a new Community Pass account, a parent/guardian can follow the prompts to set up a personal family account in his/her name as an adult; and then add the child to the account, register the child, and pay for this activity.  You will automatically receive an email confirmation after you register and make your payment.

            If you experience difficulty in setting up an account, log on to  click on the “Form Center” link on the left side of the home page, and scroll down to the Recreation Department to find “Community Pass Online  Registration Instructions” with step-by-step directions.  If you need further assistance, please contact the Recreation office at   973-663-8404 x4 or for assistance.
