ALL STAR: STUNT GROUP PRACTICE OPTIONS
As told to athletes on Monday at practice, we are highly encouraging and rewarding stunt groups coming in outside of practice to work on their stunts. To make this an option, we do have to have some regulations.
1. You can do a private lesson with a coach. *Highly encouraged! * Your whole group must be able to attend and you can set these up like would any other private lesson. NO gym fee for these lessons and fee with be $5 per athlete directly to the coach for 30 minutes.
2. If a private is not scheduled, your group can come in before practice or stay after but cannot exceed 15 minutes. Put in your athlete band if your group is planning to come in or stay after so coaches are aware and can help set aside a small space for you. Please send this message 48 hours in advance. Sunday practices are preferred since the gym is not as crowded.
ALL STAR TEAMS: OBSERVATION ROOM
Due to the high volume in our observation room, we will be making Monday and Wednesday practices closed for viewing but will have Sundays be open practices for you to watch. This will start on September 10th.
