Practices are one on one.  You sign up for a 30 minute session once a week.  The season lasts from Aug.-Mar. but you don't have to participate the entire time!  You can take a break to play or sport or be in a play, and then come back when you're done.  Almost all of the team members are involved in another sport or activity.

You can earn a speech credit and even get a Varsity letter.
