The first and last half hour of the day will be dedicated to viewing video footage of present and past masters helping you child discover the many facets and performing style of this great hobby.

There will be a morning and afternoon break along with a lunch hour where organized games will be offered for either indoor or outdoor enjoyment depending on the weather.
