Frequently Asked Questions
How do I start a class for my pod?
We will work with a designated parent coordinator to discuss your program desires and the days, times, and location that work best for your community. We’ll set up a registration page which you can share with your community. We’ll handle all other details including coaches, equipment, location set-up, and rosters.
How many kids can join?
In light of COVID-19 we are recommending smaller group sizes of 4-8.
What are the age group recommendations?
It’s usually best to group the kids into K-2nd and 3rd-5th grade so that they can play with similar ability levels. This is flexible based on your needs and/or desires.
How much do pod classes cost?
Payment is required upfront for a minimum of 6 classes. For a session of 6 classes, the cost is $270/child (groups of 4-6) and $315/child (groups of 3-4).
How long do classes run for?
Our pod sessions run for a minimum of 6 classes (1.5 hours each class). You can schedule classes bi-weekly or weekly based on your preference. If your group loves the class and coach, we can keep it going as long as you’d like.
How often do programs run?
Everything is flexible for your pod! We can run your class weekly, twice weekly, or even three times weekly. We do have a minimum of 6 classes per session.
How do you handle rain days?
We’ll do our best to notify parents about necessary cancellations due to rain, and schedule make-up days on another day that works for your group.
What is your refund policy?
Due to our small group sizes, we have a no-refund policy for our programs. If an instructor cannot make class, we will reschedule that practice. We will also reschedule poor weather & air quality days. In the event of long-term cancellations due to school schedule changes or COVID-19 public safety regulations, we will issue pro-rated class credit for unused classes which is redeemable for future ANTS Sports programs at your school or in your community.
