5 Tips for Just Starting Out
1. Park along Halifax Street and adjacent 11th Avenue. Note posted hours & meters if you're attending daytime sessions.
2. Park smart, never leave anything of value visible in your vehicle. At night especially, safer to walk in groups. Never be shy about asking one of our staff to walk you to your vehicle!
3. Arrive 5-10 minutes before class time to get settled.
4. Remember your indoor-only footwear.
5. We don't have lockers; only bring what you need.
