PREGAME MEMORIZATION CHECKS

  • Memorization checks were due this past Friday.  If not yet completed, it is the student’s responsibility to see a director to schedule the test.  If a student scored below 30 points, they will be required to come back and retest, when they are more proficient with the memorization.  All students are welcome to retake if desired.
