Getting Started

Here at RCSC it’s easy to get started!

We do NOT offer an On Ramp Program which means you are able to jump into class anytime you’d like!  Our regular Functional Fitness program here at RCSC is designed not only for all fitness and skill levels, but is also tailored for the newer athlete as well.  The first class is free, so be sure to come check us out at 729 Wall Street to get started!

Private sessions can be booked through any of our coaches if you feel the need to brush up on your Movement Fundamentals, and/or some of the more advanced skills.  We would love to help you get better at this wonderful and addicting sport!!!
