Training Starting April 19 2021
Instruction is available for GCRCC members on Monday and
Wednesday evenings from 6:30 until dark. We're happy to get
you started as you apply for membership, just bring your AMA card.
This Season we are going to try something different in the way we run the training program. Training will still take place Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:30 until we run out of light. We have had many nights the past few seasons where we have 2 or 3 instructors show up to the field, but we do not have any students attend. My idea to help remedy this would be to have the students call me to let me know that they plan to be at training that night, so that I can alert the instructors assigned to that night to be at the field.
As of right now, Training is planned to begin April 19th, however with all the COVID-19 chaos going on, that may change. If we do have to push training off I will do my best to keep everyone informed in a timely manner.
Please contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone (513-678-7692) if you have any questions, or to confirm that I have your contact information correct.
We post weather cancellations on our GCRCC Instruction Facebook page.
The training schedule will be updated in March. For reference, here is schedule from 2020.
