In Academic Sports' ball games you have an opportunity to play in multiple sports.There are no instructor in the sessions except the Start sessions where is always on instructor. Dream Team members will check out the sports fees and count the number of participants. They have a right to ask to leave a person, who haven't paid the sports fee.


Are you wondering are you a  beginner, a basic level or an advanced player in ball games? The sessions are divided into four levels. The levels are marked in the calendar with START, BEGINNERS or ADVANCED. All the other sessions are basic level.
Start = A beginner session with an instructor
Beginners = A beginner session without an instructor
Advanced = For advanced players
Other sessions are basic level
