Which level lesson should you sign your daughter up for?   

We have put together a reference key below to help.  Even if you have been involved in Coach Pruett’s lessons before, it is important that you read through the following description of the levels and sign your daughter up for the one that best fits her age/grade & experience at the current time.  It is important that athletes have a thorough understanding of the basic fundamentals of the specific skill being taught at an age/skill appropriate level before signing up for a more advanced class. Our coaches will let athletes know when they feel it would be beneficial for the athlete to progress on to lessons above their actual age/grade level.
 

LEVEL 1 - Athletes in 3rd - 4th grade. 

LEVEL 2 - Athletes in 5th - 6th grade who have previous lesson training and/or some club experience. (Athletes in 7-8th grade who have not had much lesson training or Club experience may be a good fit in this level as well)
