Registration

Register for Winter Session Classes today! Online Registration or in person class registration is considered a commitment to participate in and pay for the entire group class session. Shannon will confirm your registration upon receipt.

  • Players may sign up for any specific class any number of times a week.
  • Shannon must approve class level for each student. Skill level of each class may be higher than previous sessions.
  • Players previously enrolled and players on our elite teams have first priority registration. Classes are in high demand and early registration is recommended, especially in the fall and winter sessions. It is very difficult to join classes starting in Winter Session as most players continue from the previous session. We will be do our best to try to accommodate all requests, but we do have limited spaces per class.
