How to Join

The Team holds informational meetings for prospective team members each fall at participating high schools.  This year's meeting schedule is:  
  • Cleveland HS, Tuesday, October 3, 7-8:30 pm, CHS Library

Coming to one of these meetings to meet the coaches and learn more about the team is an essential first step in deciding if the team sounds right for you.  At these meetings, you will have a chance to join the team or think it over and join within the next several weeks.  A final registration meeting will be held on October 19, 7-8:30 in the Cleveland HS Library.
