The training sessions take place every Tuesday evening, and participants need to attend one training session a month. These training sessions are from 7 – 9 p.m. and take place in the school theatre.

Gold participants attend one Tuesday session and Silver’s attend another. For Bronze, due to the number of participants, there are two available Bronze sessions, and participants would need to attend one of the two.
