Program Session Dates

Sessions normally run for six weeks, unless otherwise noted - pricing is based on a six week session.

There are no refunds for missed classes. Participants may make up the class within the given 6 week session or may find a substitute if they cannot attend.

10% Discount when you sign up for junior clinics more than once a week. Member only benefit. We recommend that juniors sign up and participate in the entire session of junior classes which promotes better class management and insures proper instructor/student ratio. For the junior who is unable to commit to an entire session we will charge an individual class or "drop in" rate. The "drop in" rate is $4.00/per hour more than the regular hourly rate associated for a clinic class.
