Signing Up for Classes

WELCOME

Welcome to LARP Adventure Program! Our first community principle is inclusion. We are happy you have chosen to enroll in the Evenda Heroes / Marshals Academies, our independent afterschool and evening programming, in Arlington, MA. Below you will find detailed instructions on how to successfully register your youth for his or her desired classes!

ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

Live Action Role Play can take many forms and be used to create many things.  It is an integration of theater and sports that includes all of the interdisciplinary arts.  It’s a place where communities can form and take shape.  In our LARP, we take the approach of TLD work, or Transformational Leadership through Theater, as well as, old world and ancient customs and traditions, housed with personal and community principles to create a vessel for self, community and global transformation.  By the process of multiple intelligent learning methods, eastern movement, inspiration and creative nurturing, participants are energized and activated for self empowerment, facing challenges and addressing fears.  The goal is to teach 21st century skills while not losing the lesson of old.  Thus creating awesome human beings who have a place where they can practice self exploration and transformation to discover their inner power and truths.  In short “we hold each other to do awesome things”.

HOW TO SIGN UP

Step One: Membership
All participants in programming with LARP Adventure Program, must have a current membership for the present academic year. Academic years are defined as between September 1st – August 31st. Not only does this fulfill an important insurance requirement, this is also our primary method for collecting emergency information from participants. Thus it is important to fill out a fresh membership form each academic year, even if your youth has been with us in the past.

To sign up for a youth membership, you may proceed to our online storefront (store.etheraz.com) or go to that product directly by clicking here: New or Returning. All youth who have held a youth membership with L.A.P. in past years are considered “Returning”, all youth who have not done so are considered “New”.

Upon successfully ordering the membership via the online storefront, youth and their parent(s) / guardian(s) should together fill out the online Youth Membership Form here. Please be as thorough and accurate as possible as, again, this is our primary source of emergency information.

Step Two: Class Registration
All registration for afterschool and evening classes at the Evenda / Arlington location are handled through our online storefront (store.etheraz.com) in order to streamline registration and facilitate record-keeping. There are three separate ways in which we process payments – Recurring, Invoiced and At Will. Products for all three may be found under the relevant Evenda Heroes Academy and Evenda Marshals Academy categories.

Recurring. Our preferred option, with recurring payments our ecommerce client automatically saves your card information and charges your card every session (two month period). As payments are automatic, this option is ideal for youth who are committed to certain classes for the full academic year and also carries a $25 per class per session discount from the regular price. Note this method uses a separate product, clearly titled ‘Recurring’.

Invoiced. Those who prefer to pay by check / cash order / paypal, or who prefer not to sign up for recurring payments, may sign up to receive electronic invoices every session (two month period) to renew their youth’s registration for classes in the new session. Invoices must be paid manually through our website and are typically issued two weeks prior to a new session with a due date of the first day of the session.

At Will. Those who prefer to be individually responsible for signing up their youth session-to-session may sign up for At Will payments. No invoices will be issued and payments may be made at any time. However, in order for a youth to participate in a new session, payment must be receive prior to the first day of the session. Payments made after this time cannot be guaranteed to be processed in time and youth may not participate until the payment is processed.

Upon successfully placing the order for classes, all that must be filled out is the appropriate Class Registration Form: Middle School or High School.  Note that at this point, you can distinguish which payment option you would prefer to use. This form must only be filled out once for the full year, unless changes to their class schedule or payment options is made later on.

Step Three: Attend Classes!
Your youth is now fully registered for classes and ready to participate! All they have to do is show up and have fun, we’re looking forward to having them!
