YOUR FIRST DAY AT NESF…

If you have LESS than 30 days of experience, you should start your first day at NESF with any of the Fundamentals classes listed below. All fundamentals classes are instructional.

If you have MORE than 30 days of experience, you are welcome to start your first day with any class that has instruction. It doesn’t have to be a fundamentals class, but we still recommend it. When starting the free, 7-day trial, your very first class may not be one that has no instruction.

The ONLY class that is not available to you until you are a member of NESF is Monday’s ‘Live Rolling’ class from 8-9pm. You must be a paid member to attend this class. All other classes on the schedule are available to you during your free, 7-day trial.

If you still have questions about your first day at NESF, check out the FAQ page.
