There are no try outs or skills required to join the club. The only thing we ask is that you sign a waiver for liability issues and that if you decide you're going to stick with the club, that you pay our member fee ($120 USD for the year) and participate in fundraising activities. This money goes towards buying and maintaining equpiment and uniforms, as well as to funding trips for competitions.
Our club is a competition team. We are part of the NAIGC. We attend an average of 6 meets around the midwest each year. Each February we also host our own meet, called the Golden Grips Invitional. This is the largest NAIGC meet in the midwest. Also, at the end of each season there is a National competition in which clubs from all around the country converge to compete with one another. We encourage everyone who wants to compete to do so, but competing is by no means required. Just like our club, the meets are set up so that they are competitive for all skill levels. They are enjoyable for beginners and professionals alike.
