Neutral red

Red Avila Armband

The red arm band is a conditional level or Neutral and can be used in the following situations:

  • Players who have been one color armband that belong in a higher group, but have not tested out
  • Players who don't want to share their arm band color publicly
  • Players who are there as a trial
  • Players who paid and started lessons in an advanced group without ever being assessed but based on what we estimated or the parent estimated. They can be in the group but doesn't excuse them from testing out.

We will grandfather into the right color those players who have been with us already but all new players must test out within 6 weeks of their start date.

*The only way to get credit for Unit Play is to sign-off during a session. If you're not in sessions where currently Unit Play drills are routinely being practiced (Scrimmage Band or Golden Ticket), you can make arrangements to join these classes free of charge at the beginning of the sessions when the RPR unit play drills are being used as a warm-up.

 

Exams can be scheduled everyday. Only 1 player can test out in a given day during any time slot, but by appointment only. All time slots for exams must be done exactly at the times listed:

  • 4:15 PM, 5:00 PM, 6:00 PM
  • If players are in a Scrimmage Class, they can schedule their exam at 3:30, 7:00 or 7:45 PM
