“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
