Training Schedule

Below is a rough draft of the training schedule that's being put together by the Training Committee. Once finalized, every topic will contain clickable links to pertinent notes and an agenda of what will be discussed in each class.  Of course, similar to game situations, this schedule will be open for judgement, interpretation and adjustment throughout the year.
