**Class RequirementsA student is expected to make at least 5 of the 6 classes.  *STUDENTS MUST CONTACT COACH CHRIS OR ERIK BY THE WEDNESDAY PRIOR TO CLASS IF HE/SHE WILL BE MISSING A CLASS.  This class assumes the commitment and interest in being an active part of the class outside of unexpected schedule conflicts. One of our goals at this level is to encourage a youngster's responsibility with commitments and obligations, like signing up for a tournament or not being late for a tee time (or appointment in life).

Class Policies:  The class fee will not be charged upon cancellation prior to the 3 day deadline before class begins. On the (first) day of the class, refunds will be available for emergency medical reasons only. Refunds will not be available to participants who voluntarily leave the class, forget to attend, forget to notify a Coach of an upcoming missed absence, excused for disciplinary reasons or opt to withdraw from the class due to weather if the event is still being held and has not been rescheduled. Every efforts will be made to fill the spot with a wait-listed student, in which case the original class cost will be refunded to the participant who withdrew.
