Registration

Spring/Summer is Now Open!

We have different training levels.  Our fall and winter sessions focus on our Elites and Mixed training levels.  The training levels listed below are for our summer sessions and use age as a baseline.  However, skill drives a player’s training level.  Levels are fluid to allow players to move up groups as they develop.

All players must register for a Silver Membership with the AVP as part of their club activities.
