Each week is taught by the same instructor and united with the same group of students, you’ll join old friends or make new ones. Students are placed in classes based on their age and skill level. Class sizes range from 8 to 10 students. Requests for a specific instructor or placement with a friend are accommodated to the best of our ability on the first day of class. Brigade participants will also share in a series of fun activities to include Park Jams, NASTAR races, parties, cookouts and more throughout the season.
