Getting started with Earth Treks Team is easy.

Find everything you need here to prepare for tryouts.

Tryouts for all teams are held in August of each year prior to the start of the new competition season.  Everyone must tryout, regardless of prior participation in a team. A second tryout may be held in February for prospective new team members, space permitting.

Registration for team tryouts is open. Click on the name of the gym where you want to tryout to register. Please note these are the only dates available for trying out for Team and tryouts are required.

Participants can attend a tryout at any location, regardless of where they want to train during the season. This allows more flexibility in scheduling, and the head coaches will be at all tryouts. If all tryouts are full, please call the gym where you'd like to tryout to be added to the waitlist.
