Classes

Our Five-Level Junior Program is designed to place athletes in the appropriate class level solely on the basis of their ability.  Each level has set criteria for advancement and students must demonstrate the required skills before continuing at the next level.  Students are encouraged to pick up a level-criteria checklist from the staff and to practice these skills outside of class as well.
