The RCTA is pleased to offer a variety of group lessons.  These programs are a great way to work on your game in an organized, social way.  Please read the class descriptions to determine what is best for you. Classes are one hour long (except for Junior Aces, which is 2). To register, click here.  If you are not already an RCTA member, you must become a member before registering.  Please look at event locations closely as we are also offering group lessons at 119th Street.

6 week classes will begin the week of June 24 for the Summer 2024 session. There will be no group lessons on July 4.

All Spring group lessons held on Saturday, Sunday and Monday will offer a makeup lesson one week after the initially stated end date, on the same day and hour of the week.  This is due to anticipated absences on Memorial Day Weekend (May 25-27).  Groups will still be held on Memorial Day weekend, and all group members may attend the makeup lesson.
