What you get when you become a Team Member
Join the APEX Comp Team and get a Team wristband which gives you access to the gym anytime during operating hours to train. You’ll get a Team shirt to show your Team pride and to wear to competitions. You will also receive the exclusive APEX Team Newsletter
featuring weekly workouts, skill challenges, and Parkour community highlights.
Team members get free entry in any APEX San Diego competitions.* This includes the Annual Zombie Comp and Anniversary Jam and all APEX Mini-Comps.
Team members are required to participate in these competitions and may further be required to compete in other
competitions during the year.
Our Competition Team practices for an hour and half twice a week and are held at APEX San Diego. However, on the first Sunday of the month, the Team will meet at an iconic San Diego Parkour spot for a 2 hour outdoor practice.
When you join the Team, you will get an APEX Competition Team jersey. Team jerseys are designed each year and each athlete gets their name or nickname on their shirt.
An APEX Coach will accompany the Team to SoCal competitions to include WCPKC qualifiers at FIM, Firestorm and Collective Movements.
Our Team is a fun and effective way for you to get the most out of Parkour, and see what the entire community can offer!
Practices will be held twice a week. Wednesdays at 6:00 – 7:30pm and Sundays 1:00 – 2:30pm at APEX. We will still hold outdoor practice on the first Sunday of the month from 1:00 – 3:00pm at iconic Parkour spots throughout San Diego.
Joining the APEX Team is restricted to athletes who have achieved their Earth Band Stripe or higher in our band system.
If you are interested in becoming part of the APEX Team please ask our Front Desk for more information on how to contact the Head Coach.
*Some competitions held at APEX San Diego are co-hosted or run through other organizations and their entry fees may not be covered by APEX Comp Team fees.
What is the value of joining the Team?
Joining the APEX Comp Team has a monetary value of more than $4000 for each team member. This includes the practices, entrance to competitions, Team jersey and Coach support at competitions.
However, athletes get more than just this financial value from joining the Team. They also get the comraderie and support of being part of a dedicated and professional organization. They will learn both personal and training discipline and gain personal and athletic growth.
What is the cost of joining the Competition Team?
The cost for this $4000+ value for the nine month season is just $1200. We do offer a financing plan if you would prefer to break the payment up into monthly payments. There is a $10 per month administrative fee for financing the cost.
Members receive their discount on this amount. Tier 3 Members get 20% off and Tier 2 Members get 15% off. We are also giving 10% off to Tier 1 Members for the Competition Team. This discount applies whether you pay up front or choose to finance the cost over the 9 months.
*See the cost chart below.
Can I join for just a few months of the season?
All athletes will be committed to the entire season and expected to participate with the Team for its entirety.
There is no early terminating for the season. No refunds can be granted and you will be required to continue to pay the monthly dues if you financed
What if I get injured during the season? Can I suspend my Comp Team dues or terminate?
The APEX Competition Team is just that… a Team. We expect each athlete to commit to the Team and show up to all practices even if they are injured. If you are unable to train during a practice, you can still gain valuable knowledge by attending practice. You can also still provide support for your Teammates and get support from them in return.
Heck! Perhaps a Teammate has a magic strength exercise to help you through that sprain or muscle pull.
What if I am new to APEX San Diego and the season has already begun? Can I still join the Team?
Yes. We will prorate the season’s cost for you so that you can join the Team after the season has already begun.
There will be a one-time administrative fee if you join after the start of the season.
- Join in September 2022 and pay the full price.
- Join in October 2022 and pay an administrative fee of $50.
- Join in November 2022 and pay an administrative fee of $75.
- Join after December 2022 and pay an administrative fee of $100.
- After March of 2023, APEX will not be able to provide a Team jersey to anyone joining the APEX Comp Team due to supply and delivery timing.
If I pay in full at the beginning of the season and upgrade my membership, will I get the discount?
No. When you pay in full we cannot refund any difference in discount amounts.
