Favored by many, we are again offering specific classes bundled together to give children a three-hour (or, with tennis, four-hour) period of KBIA programming with supervision included between classes. Parents drop off their child at the first class and pick them up at their last class. Continuous supervision is provided by KBIA, led by our Bundle Coordinator throughout the day. To encourage families to register for the afternoon bundle class, we have discounted the cost of this session.

Morning bundle, plus tennis: If your child takes the 12:30 to 1 PM tennis class as part of the bundle, parents should drop off their child at 9 AM at KBIA and pick their child up at Edgcomb at 1 PM. KBIA staff will supervise your child changing clothes, eating lunch, and walking them to Edgcomb in time for their lesson.

Afternoon bundle, plus tennis: If your child takes the 12 to 12:30 PM tennis class as part of the bundle, parents should drop off their child at 12 PM, dressed in tennis whites, at Edgcomb and pick their child up at KBIA at 4 PM.

The swim class includes a half-hour swim lesson and a half-hour of supervised time to change clothes and play. Indicate your preference for either Swimming or Reading on the Registration Form.

We also offer bundled classes for ages 4 to 8 every week in the afternoon. Swimming is split into two groups, by age and ability.

Reminder: Classes are limited to 14 children per age group for each bundled time period, so register early! All bundled classes are still available for individual sign-ups. KBIA cannot provide supervision outside of class time for children unless they are enrolled in a bundle class or Adventures. We have made every effort to minimize class conflicts with bundle schedules.

Starting New At Golf is a system designed to integrate fundamental coordination and athletic movements into the fundamentals of golf.

These techniques progress nicely into the traditional game of golf as kids take an interest in the game as well as the activity of just hitting the ball.

• Intermediate Golf: These classes build on the progression model as seen in the younger classes. Students will begin to take the fundamental athletic principles established in the beginner levels of golf and apply them to more advanced athletic movements, which translate to success with their swing. Intermediate golfers will continue to learn etiquette of the game as they progress in preparation for full integration onto the golf course. These classes may also spend some time with more advanced games featuring SNAG equipment.

• Advanced Golf: The advanced golf class will be the culmination of the fundamentals of etiquette and the game as outlined through the younger stages of the junior golf program. This class is for experienced golfers only and will focus more on honing skills, and they will spend a majority of their time on the range, putting green practicing or on the golf course applying their acquired knowledge into the game of golf. Advanced golfers must bring their own set of clubs.

Waterfront — Sailing (Laser Sailing)

Instructors: Emily Longworth & Waterfront Staff
Ages: 10+
Meets: 2.5 hours, 3 times a week
Cost: $148

This class is designed for both sailors who have mastered the fundamentals of sailing and are ready for more independence and for older novice sailors who are comfortable on the water and eager to jump into the sport. Instruction focuses on boat handling skills, including sail trim and boat speed, so that each participant can become proficient and confident in solo sailing. Both games and drills will be integrated into the class for guaranteed fun and learning! The class will sail in the cove and will also venture into the ocean when conditions allow. This is not racing class but would serve as a precursor to racing, and a great stepping stone onto the race team. The Laser sailboat is meant for one person who weighs over 100 pounds and/or is five feet tall. As Topsails will be run concurrently, if in the opinion of the staff the student is more appropriate for the Topsails class, the child will be reassigned to that class.
