You can book your chosen lesson with our trainers and it is valid for 3 months. 
When you have booked you will receive a unique booking code and contact details for the trainer. You then book your lesson direct with the trainer at a mutually convenient time. 
Your training will be recorded as BD training towards regional team selection if you wish to apply.
