Registration Process Update:
We want program registration to be easy and fair, so we are transitioning all programs to a three week pre-registration period.
With this new system, you don’t need to wait at your computer for the moment registration opens. Everyone will have three weeks to pre-register their participant(s) for Little Bellas. Pre-registration does not guarantee a spot, and we do not collect payment during the pre-registration period. After pre-registration closes, one of two things will happen:
- If the program is full or over capacity, we will randomly select to determine who is awarded a spot. You will only be charged if you are awarded a spot. If you do not get a spot, you will be put on a waitlist in the order of the random selection process.
- If the program does not fill, you will be awarded a spot and we will open the program to normal registration.
One month after pre-registration opens for your program, we will communicate with you via text message and the email provided regarding your registration status.
We hope this new process will ease some stress and help create a more equitable registration system for all Little Bellas girls and families.
Wait a Month Policy
We want to make space for as many Little Bellas to attend our programs as possible. That is why we ask participants to register for one program at a time and to Wait a Month.
Wait a Month Policy:
Participants may take part in one program per year. The sole exception is for programs that are not full after their pre-registration window closes. In that case, we would welcome any participants back to a second program! Otherwise, please wait a month before attempting to register or pre-register for a second program.
When to Pre-Register / Register:
Please pre-register for one program at a time. If you don't get into that program, you may then register for a different program in which there is still space, or pre-register for a program opening at a later date.
If you would like to sign your participant(s) up for a second program, you MUST wait until that program’s pre-registration window closes. At that point, if there is space in an additional program in your area, you may then register for a second program.
Thank you for Waiting a Month to allow more families a chance to get into a Little Bellas program.
If for any reason you need to cancel your Little Bellas registration within 90 days of your program start, we offer the following refund minus a $10 non-refundable processing fee.
8-4 weeks prior to launch date - 75% refund | 4-2 weeks prior to launch date - 50% refund | 2-0 weeks prior to launch date - no refund
How does the random selection process work with siblings? On your pre-registration form, you will be able to tell us if you are pre-registering multiple siblings and what their names are. You'll then be able to select whether you want any/all spaces that you are awarded in the lottery OR whether you only want them if all siblings get into the program. There is also an "other" option if those choices don't describe your situation. We'll be able to link siblings' pre-registrations together and move forward with acceptances based on your preferences.
How do families plan for summer? We've bumped up our pre-registration open dates by at least 1 to 2 months earlier than in previous years. This earlier pre-registration timing will account for the 1 month window before we award any spaces, allowing families the time they need to make summer plans.
When does my program's pre-registration open? This varies based on location and program start date. Please visit littlebellas.com/register to find your program's details and pre-registration open date.
