Lessons and Programs

The website will be updated with 2020 Lessons, programs and summer kids' camps the beginning of April.

Please go to the Lessons and Programs tab to view all the lessons available at that time.

In most cases, children must be signed up as a member in order to take lessons. We will be running a 10 week clinic specifically for 4-8 year olds and will allow non-members to participate without membership. 

Parents can sign in as a non-member in order to register their kids as a member if they are not joining as a family. If their 4-8 year olds participated in a clinic and wish to become a member, there will be a discount to their membership.  Please contact Kerry at or talk to Veronika, the Club Coordinator.
