If you have any questions or concerns about our new procedures, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at [email protected] or by phone at (817) 420-9370. Our office hours through the Winter season are Monday-Friday 9:00 am – 5:00 pm and Saturdays 9:00 am – 3:00 pm.

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.
- Bring a water bottle (and snacks if participating in a camp).
- Don’t forget the sunscreen!
Indoor Programs or Events
We will currently allow for indoor activities where able. Masks are optional for staff and participants. 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.
