Custom development for your child
Private lessons, for some children, are a better way to deliver skills training. The 1-to-1 scenario (or 2-to-1 scenario if you’d like to share a private lesson with a friend) allows the instructor to stop and deconstruct a particular move, skill or trick.
Here are four great reasons to take private lessons:
The trainer can stop a session for the purposes of deconstructing a particular move, skill or trick. Because there is only one athlete (or possibly two) to guide, the trainer can tailor the session specifically to a problem area or areas of interest. The trainer can also still keep that athlete’s heart rate up. Usually instruction and heart rate trade off in larger groups because the instructor has to consider group dynamics.
Tactical awareness issues can be addressed in a one on one session too, and this often leads to quick improvements on game day. However, not everyone is suitable for private training. Some athletes find the pressure to be something they are trying to escape with their training at Avila rather than embrace. As such, there is an interview process for entering private training to ensure that this type of training is something your child is looking for and will enjoy. One thing is for sure—for the right athlete there is no quicker way to improve!

There is a "Use it or lose it" policy for Dual Private Lessons due to the challenges of coordination and time it takes to match trainers with player. However, anyone who misses a lesson can choose an age-appropriate Small Group Class (where we often have scrimmaging going on) or a Specialty Skills Class as a make-up option.
Private Lessons can be made up in the form of scrimmaging as well. It is possible to ask for a make-up IF 1) player filled out the appropriate cancellation form and 2) there are available scrimmaging spots. Make-ups will not be guaranteed. If interested in a make-up in the form of scrimmaging, please let us know by filling out this form.
