EXPERIENCE REQUIRED?

No experience is needed. Placement into the proper class ensures both safety and success for your child. In some cases the recreational director may feel that a child is not in the best suited class. In this case he/she may be asked to change to a more appropriate class. If you wish you may have your child tested to find the most suitable class for him/her. Pre-competitive testing is available.
