SCNY Youth Pizza Party Tuesday Sep. 26!

Sep. 23, 2017 – Next Tuesday September 26th starting at 4:30pm, we are having a pizza party for all of our Youth Muay Thai and BJJ students! Each student is able to bring a friend to the event! The guest child must be accompanied by their parent in order to fill out simple paperwork before the event starts!

We are planning to open the 3:30pm Muay Thai class to all ages and to all the visiting guest children! If your child has class that day during the 3:30pm time slot and they would like to come to the party afterwards, please feel free to stay after class and take part in the fun and games!

Everything will be provided for the party. Food, drinks and plates/napkins will be readily available! Students will need their workout gear and bring their gloves since there will be fun, light training in the beginning. Guests only need to have comfortable workout clothes to train, play and eat. Guests do not need gloves.

To have the most fun possible, we would love to extend a warm welcome for your child’s guest who hasn’t been to the school before. If you already know who your child’s guest is, please let us know so that we can properly prepare for them to be included in the fun!

We look forward to seeing all of you on the 26th. We will have lots of games and prizes for the children to win!
