Session Times

All sessions are from 10:00AM to 11:50AM. With at least two volunteer coaches in each pod, players are led through a series of drills designed to improve their game.  Feedback is provided throughout the session.  All sessions allocate 1 hour for Drills, followed by 1 hour of games.  Drill and Play is a fun and challenging experience designed to keep players safe while they gain new knowledge about the sport.
