Spring Training Move-In
Move in for spring training is TBD but is usually in the last few weeks of May. The location will be announced
later in the winter season.
If a member that is selected for performance is a high school student, they

student is expected to make every attempt to be released early. The Corps
Director, Russ Gavin, will help with this process. In addition, with
more than 24 degreed teachers on staff, we are equipped to administer finals,
etc... Each situation like this will be handled on an individual basis,
based on proximity to the move-in location, and that individual member's
Email the Director if
