Children are grouped according to age, experience and ability. They will be moved from one group to the next at instructor discretion. In the event of rain, we will email parents if there is sufficient time for notification. If there is not sufficient time, we will tweet the information. Our twitter feed on the home page will reflect weather cancellations.
Please visit our Tournaments page to determine if your child is ready, as well as to view the available options.
Our sessions are organized around the school year. We assume your child will continue month to month unless you email Coach Linda by the 20th of the month prior. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee placement if you choose not to participate in a given month due to a substantial wait list.
