OUTDOOR CONTACT SPORTS ALLOWED

INDOOR LIMITED CLASSES ALLOWED

While we are planning to continue outdoor live classes for the time being, thunderstorms and/or extreme temperatures may mandate moving indoors. We are limited to 25% capacity indoors, so we will not be able to accommodate spectators at this time. Students are required to wear a mask when entering and exiting classes and when using the restroom facilities.

ZOOM CLASS SCHEDULE CHANGES
We have implemented a new virtual schedule of classes, which will stream live classes to students unable/uncomfortable training in person at this time.
 
All classes will now use one class link and password:
Zoom Meeting ID: 904-210-9002, password to be emailed upon request 
 
Once the day begins the link will remain open. Students will remain in a waiting room until their class begins. Please sign in 5 minutes prior to start of class to allow for a smooth start and proper attendance tracking. User name must show full student name and ID number for admission. A dedicated instructor will be present in all virtual meeting rooms to facilitate attendance and class organization.
