To sign up or renew, fill out and submit the MMS Membership Application & Renewal form and liability waiver.  The easiest and quickest way to do this is with our new online application! You can use this form whether you are new to the MMS, are renewing your membership, or have been a member in the past but do not currently have an active membership.  Please read our application FAQ below before you click on Join today to go to the form.

  • You need to be an adult (age 18 or over) to fill out this application. If you are not an adult, you need to have a parent or legal guardian fill out this form and list you as their child.
  • All adults who participate in MMS activities must read and sign the waiver that is included with the membership form. Valid and separate email addresses are required for each adult member to allow the opportunity to read and agree to our waiver and release independently.
