Real testimonials, from real people...

“The trial gave my child a fair chance to try out the classes and see if it was something he enjoyed.  For me it was beneficial to see how the coaches worked out with the kids – if the kids were getting the most of their experience – if not – we try something else.  Everyone exceeded expectations at Roufusport and the trial special was very important in our decision.” – Bryan P., Milwaukee, WI (for son Aiden, 10)

“I was nervous to start something new.  Once I purchased the trial, I knew it was go time!  When I got to Roufusport and received my free pair of gloves, I knew I was ready!  I fell in love right away.” – Cassandra F., Milwaukee, WI

“The kid’s trial special gave Ethan the opportunity to get in the class and let us know if he wanted to continue.  After class he was able to let us know he wanted to do this!” – Kristen L., Milwaukee, WI (for son Ethan, 4 years old)

“The trial gave me the opportunity to try it without commitment.  It’s long enough to determine if this is something I wanted to do long term rather than just trying out the one class.  You can even get a taste of your improvement!” – Christine R., Milwaukee, WI
