Yes, however, so children can get the most from the program we do ask that parents not stay the entire time so instructors can have the child’s undivided attention.

Yes, our curriculum and instructors work great with all ages and skill levels.

Yes, SSA takes the safety of every child very seriously, so please know that all SSA coaches and instructors have approved background checks through the state and FBI. In addition, SSA instructors and coaches have 3+ years of experience working with children, are CPR certified, attend ongoing training, and have been thoroughly trained in youth development, SSA life coaching, and the subject in which they are teaching/coaching.
