Moving Up: Players have the flexibility to move down a level or two but never the other way around until the player meets the criteria for that level. A Pro will suggest for a player to be moved up to the parent to see if their schedule allows it, however the player/parent may express intent at any time and we will keep an eye out for that. Players may expedite that with private lessons. *All after school drills players have a fixed monthly bill ALL YEAR round, see prices. No pro rating of prices
