Ideally, athletes would train in the same group at a similar level, and training sessions would be at the same set times every week. With that said, we understand how difficult it is to balance school, sports, training, work, and having a social life. Therefore, we try to make it possible for athletes and clients to transfer their training time to another slot without compromising the quality of training they receive. In these situations, we simply need 24 hours advance notice, and to verify that there is a group that isn’t full at the time you’re available. This allows us to be flexible in our scheduling to better accommodate the varying scheduling needs of our athletes.  In terms of making up missed sessions, it is the responsibility of the athlete to reschedule with the coach.  Sessions will not be carried over from one seasonal session to the next.  Any missed sessions must be made up during that seasonal time period.
