Group Lessons

Our group lessons are fun, interactive and informative and are a great way for students to practice their skills  and socialize with players at the same level within a small group.


We offer various levels, from complete beginners to advanced players who play competitively. Each lesson consist of a learning segment, where the coach will teach something new, followed by practical application of what has been taught (exercises, practice games etc).​
 

We generally offer 3 semesters during the year: Fall (Sept - Dec), Winter (Jan - Mar), Spring (April - June)
