There are several advantages to the High Dive Champions fee structure.  There is flexibility in the program.  

There is no Annual payment.  You pay only for the 9 week sessions you sign up for.

There is no minimum required number of practice days.  You design the number of days you practice a week within a 9 week session.  Training time translates to speed of advancement, so you design your training program based on your goals and availability.

Practice times are available nearly everyday and during prime time hours.
