General Safety Guidelines For All
- The wearing of masks by staff members and participants while outside or indoors is not mandatory but is certainly welcome if you so choose.
- Participants will remain with the same cohort for the entire session.
- BRING A WATER BOTTLE AND SNACKS. Participants will not be allowed to go to the course clubhouse during classes to purchase drinks and snacks.

Indoor Programs or Events
We will currently allow for indoor activities where able. Masks are recommended indoors but not required. Should a participant and/or parent/guardian feel uncomfortable with participating in any indoor class or camp, please let the coach on site know or send an email to [email protected] to let us know and the participant will receive certification credit for that class or day of camp. Should a class or camp be cancelled several times within a single session due to weather and/or a lack of indoor space, partial refunds will be determined on a case by case basis.
