Can kids join?

YES! We welcome children ages 6-17 to our Medalist Flex membership program. Our classes are organized based on age, with 6-11 and 12-17 y/o specific classes.

How big are class sizes?

Currently, a maximum of 4 people is allowed per class (with minor exceptions in specialty classes or clinics).

Is it possible to have less than 4 people to a class?

Yes, depending entirely on the number of people who signs-up, and class sign-ups end up to 2 hours before the class' scheduled time.

Does every adult have to take the FLEX Enrollment class?

The FLEX Enrollment class is an introduction to The FLEX Program. During this session, your instructor will do an evaluation of your swing and your goals to then help recommend your following classes. This is also the time when the instructor relays program details and takes care of the payment process. This class does not count toward your monthly class allotment. If you believe that the program is not for you, there are no commitments to continue through the billing process. Past FLEX Members re-registering do not need to attend.

What are the membership commitments?

Our Flex memberships have a 2-month minimum requirement, and they do not have any additional fee assiociated outside of the monthly membership or no-show fees. See above for cancelation requirements.

Do you have to take all the classes once a week or in a calendar month?

One of the advantages of The FLEX Program is the FLEXability. The Standard FLEX Plan allows students to take 4 Semi-private sessions per calendar month. All classes are conveniently booked online to give our students the freedom to register for these 4 sessions in what ever secession they’d like. Whether it’s once a week or 4 sessions in one day, it is up to the student to register for their allotted monthly sessions as there is no monthly rollover of unused sessions.

How does auto payment work?

Our billing cycle is on the 20th of every month. Initial payment is made for the first month once the application is completed (after 1-1-21). To cancel your membership, just send an email to the Director of Memberships at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., 7 days prior the billing period (which is the13th of every month).

What happens when classes are cancelled?

Although infrequent, classes may be canceled due to a number if reasons including forecasted (75% chance of rain or worse) or current inclement weather, instructor time conflicts and facility event time conflicts (tournaments). If a class is canceled inside of 12 hours, students will be notified via phone call and email. If a cancelation is made outside 12 hours, students will receive just a cancelation email. Students will then need to register for another class to make up for the canceled class.
