Youth students and parents must notify us at their earliest convenience which classes they will be continuing with this fall. Starting September 1st, student lists will be created for each youth class in the schedule, with limited space available. So, it is essential that we get you onto the appropriate class lists. Students aged thirteen years or older are eligible to transition to Adult classes (including Karate, Jiu-jitsu, Thai Kickboxing, and Strength & Conditioning.) These classes do not need to be reserved.
Students and parents can reserve their classes by any of the following ways:
¨ By speaking to someone directly at the front desk
¨ By sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
¨ By calling us at 413-637-0656
Please remember that class reservations and lists are made on a ‘first come first served’ basis. Waiting lists will be generated for classes that reached their limit. Students who are not able to attend their first choice for classes right away are encouraged to choose alternative classes until space opens up in their preferred classes.
Also, remember that class reservations will only be effective with an active student enrollment. Reservations for students not currently enrolled must be accompanied with tuition payment to restart the student’s membership. Remember, too, that ‘Partial Participation’ discounts are reserved for students age seven years old and younger.
As of September 1st, youth students will be limited to a maximum of three classes per week in each program. This is to balance enthusiastic individual attendance with allowing a maximum number of students to attend. Also, parents and students need to be careful to prevent ‘burnout’ in younger students. This still allows most students to attend as much as six classes per week between Karate and Jiu-jitsu.
We are still using precautionary sanitizing and cleaning, and asking students to exercise intelligent personal care (refraining from attending classes when sick.) Face coverings remain optional and students who are more comfortable wearing them are encouraged to do so. With these measures students can safely reap the benefits of the learning, physical activity, and socialization at ZenQuest.
There are no changes to the current class schedule, except that Cobras students will have the option to attend the Friday evening Uechi-Ryu class. As always, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns going forward. We will look forward to another great season of fun and learning at the oldest and best martial arts school in the Berkshires!!
