Students and parents: We are currently getting ready to switch away from BAND, Kicksite, and PayPal. We will be using the Spark Membership product to manage the school starting with summer season (hopefully). The idea is that we will be able to move everything into a single program - student records, invoices and memberships, communications, and payments. Until we are ready, expect to continue to get messages in BAND, Facebook, and email as in the past.

Do you like what we do? Are we providing a positive experience? Do you have questions, suggestions, or would like to offer help? If so, let us know! Contact us with your feedback! Criticism is just as important as praise as it helps us evaluate everything that we do. or Contact an instructor.
