A - Download an application via this link, fill it out then mail it to us or bring it by our office at El Dorado Hills. You may also bring it when you arrive at your first workout.
Q - How do I join a tournament team?
A - Although we occasionally have dedicated tryout dates for age groups, the vast majority of our tournament ball players are selected within the context of our regular workout program, where interested participants are evaluated by our professional coaching staff. We are an "open" program so competition for the 12-13 roster spots on each team is ongoing. We do strive to have multiple teams at each level to accommodate every participant who wants to play tournament ball, but can only do so if enough demand exists. Tournament team participation requires 75% participation in our workout program, unless prior arrangements are made in advance.
Q - Do I have to participate on a tournament team to join Hard 90?

Q - How much do lessons cost and how do I sign up for them?
