Can’t make your pre-booked visit?

Please remember to cancel so others can sign up for the spot.

We know plans can change. So if you are unable to attend your pre-booked visit, we ask that you please cancel online as soon as you know you can’t attend.  This will free up your spot for others who want to get active.

You can cancel a visit online and we ask that you cancel as early as possible (at least 24 hours in advance) so we can provide the spot to someone on the waitlist. Visit the registration support page to watch a how-to cancel video.
