If you wish to reserve practice time, reservations for 2023 will be accepted in email form only beginning November 15 at 9 AM. Emails have time stamps and those sent prior to 9 AM will go to the bottom of the list. Once SPAA confirms your dates and times, we will send you an email with the amount you will owe. You will be given 7 days to either get us a check or call in with a credit card to cover the payment. After 7 days if you have not paid your balance due, your rental time will be given to the next person requesting it. Once we receive your payment, we will email out a permit for you to keep with you at all times.
You may request rental time for April 3, 2023, through October 2023. April through July time will be billed right away and requested time for August, September and October will be permitted out with 50% of the fall payment, minus any accumulated credits from April through July 2023, being billed at the beginning of August. Balance will be billed the end of October to ensure as many credits are able to be used as possible. Once again, all permitted time for April through July must be paid within 10 days of receipt of bill. All credits for 2023 will expire October 31, 2023.
