Track Cycling: Velodrome Racing and Training Area - Moving to LB...Riding @ ADT

I'm planning a move to Long Beach in the near-ish future (roughly 7-10 months) and would want to start training at ADT. I currently ride at Hellyer in San Jose and have not yet ridden at ADT.
Could anyone give me a general idea of how much I'd be spending on training? I'd like to go at least 2 if not 3-4 days out of the week, plus coaching. Thanks for any help!

getting certified is $65... training sessions are $20 ea......... coaching can be $$$
once you get there ask for roger young.....
if you take rogers training classes they are tuesday and thursday night.. that alone will get you fast on the bike...
Awesome, thanks for the help.

Annual unlimited is $480 if you don't volunteer (on the order of a half day or so a couple times/year) , $320 if you do. It works out to $6-10/week (assuming you take a few weeks off) for all the sessions you can ride. Coaching is more.
Various regular training sessions, the qualification requirements, and rates are listed here: http://lavelodrome.org/training.htm
Races are listed on a separate page- there are friday training night races about twice/month, and saturday TT and omniums about once a month.
If you're already a cat 1/2 on the track you don't need to do the cert class. If you race, you can get the cert class free (included with your entry+track fee) when you race one of the LAVRA saturday omniums.
