CHOOSING THE RIGHT PROGRAM FOR YOUR CHILD

We’ve tweaked the length and timing of our programs so that we can offer continuous development opportunities at age groups between 6 and 14 and offer some at multiple times to fit everyone’s busy schedules. We recognize that not all children will enter the pathway at the same age or athletic skill level. Also, not all children will develop at the same rate once they enter. The key is that they are in a program appropriate for their skill level and that they feel comfortable socially. Recommended ages are guidelines only.

Program Schedules

We were fortunate to be able to obtain more gym time this season. We will be able to offer multiple sessions of some programs. We’ve shortened the programs from 8 to 6 weeks so that we can offer 4 “waves” of programming during the indoor season. Please note, to fit into gym availability and have programs coincide with natural breaks in the gym schedule, some sessions only have 5 weeks –one of the nights will be doubled up so that you receive 6 weeks of programming.
