Registered Programs

Easy to learn, fun, and great exercise. Participants can play at their own pace. Levels 1 and 2 are available depending on experience.   If you are new to the sport, we suggest registering for a program with instruction so that you can learn the rules and etiquette.  This will provide ample opportunity to play, so that you can gain the skills needed for drop in style game play.
