There are training breaks in November, March, and sporadically during the summer.  Elite Club members have the opportunity to play in local, regional, and national level tournaments throughout the year.

  • If you plan to participate in all seasons of JR club it is beneficial to do Year Round Elite Club instead as their is a discount included, especially because YREC includes summer camp.
