We try to offer a variety of competition opportunities for RMPV athletes of all ages and abilities, from Beginner to Elite and Youth to Master.  High School athletes have options to compete for their schools (HS), as an unattached athlete (una), or as a club member.  

See our Calendar for each season's offerings.  Prices per athlete per meet vary, but most are $20 or less.  Each listing will clarify which affiliations are open (HS, unattached or club).  We also send emails to members prior to meets we plan to attend with details such as place, price, how to register, registration deadlines, transportation and/or lodging info and more.  

Whenever we can register you and pay fees online (necessary for most meets), I will do that and ask for reimbursement.  Sometimes an athlete must register her/himself, and that is mostly done through one of these following sites (where you will need to have or create an account):  

When we travel out of town we will communicate to you as early as possible all the details.  We will let you know where we are staying and get group rates whenever possible, then let you know so that you can make arrangements to stay in the same place.  Generally Coach Rick and/or I drive and take the poles, and try to book hotels which offer free breakfast.  Sometimes we take more than one vehicle and will certainly take as many passengers as we can fit!
