Staff and coaches will assist with double parking as needed.
Skill Tracking and Evaluations
Skills for Levels 1-4 are tested every 8 weeks during our school year program (September through June). Students must pass all skills in a level to move up. Evaluations will be offered for those transferring from a different facility, or to former students who wish to re-enroll in a class they have been out of for 6 months or longer. Level 3/4 classes and competitive teams are by invitation only.
Our tots and toddler classes require adult participation at all times during their class. Adults are not allowed to be on any equipment unless they are assisting a child. Once an athlete reaches the preschool level (ages 3-4) we ask that adults remain in the viewing area.
Siblings and Friends
Siblings and friends of registered students must remain in the viewing area. Students may only participate during the specific class, day, and time they are registered for.
