Race season typically starts in May and concludes in September.  The majority of races are in June / July, and many out of town races provide an opportunity to mix sports with vacation travel.  

Parents - we have room for you too!  Our masters/adult programs are specifically designed to co-ordinate with many of our youth programs.  

 

A few things are consistent with all programs:

  • Reasonable fees and relatively low volunteer/fundraising commitments.
  • Great training facilities
  • Highly qualified professional coaches, regardless of the age group or performance level of the athlete.
