He knows the right way to challenge and encourage every level of player. Open to students entering grades 1-5. There are sessions in Weeks 4, 5, and 6.

Note that week 4 is designed for absolute beginners (normally incoming Class I. Week 5 is for intermediate/recreational player, and Week 6 is only for advanced students (K-5th) who have been approved by Mr. G (alexandergustafsson@waterfordschool.org).
