Enrollment Procedures

Upon receipt of your enrollment information, you will receive information about upcoming orientation sessions. The orientation meetings take place on ZOOM and introduce you to our programs, policies, and procedures prior to attending your first session. New Athlete Orientations occur on a monthly basis, and take about 45 minutes.

After participating in the new family orientation, you will be able to register your Athlete(s) in the next quarterly registration period. Registration takes place approximately every 3 months: in August, December, March, and June for the following season's activities. If there are spaces available, it may be possible to register your Athlete immediately following the orientation session, but this is dependent on current program participation.
