Important Notes

  • All club fees INCLUDE one summer camp - either June 12th-15th or July 24th-27th.
  • HS athletes do not participate in club during the fall HS season which is why their fees are lower than 8th grade and below. Please make note if you are in U14 but going into HS in the fall so you register with the correct fee.
  • Rising 9th-college athletes also receive Elite Fit Club in July included with their fees. 
  • If you plan to participate in all seasons of the "seasonal" club it is beneficial to do Year Round Elite Club instead as there is a discount included and EC includes one summer camp.
