The Club offers a Badge initiated skill development program for athletes to earn and achieve both baton and dance elements. All of our programs focus on the betterment of the athletes skills while helping them reach their goals.

Simone is one of our most valuable coaches as she is the one who introduces all our stars to the love and fun of baton.  She is our Grass roots coach! She can claim every one of our coaching titles as her own because she taught many of our champions their first twirls, helped them in their first parade and performance, gave them confidence, and continued to develop them into the elite athletes they are today! We value Miss Simone so much as our grassroots rock star!
