You do not need to be enrolled in any of the competition classes in order to attend the practices, they are open to anyone who is interested in participating in these competitions.

If you are a part of any of the competition classes, you must attend the practice that corresponds to your division. For all other members, you are welcome to attend, but it is not mandatory.
