Our Welcome Back plan

Courage League has decided to open up limited programming beginning in June. We know that not everyone will be in agreement on this decision, however our family survey response is over 85% positive to return to programs this summer. Obviously, the choice is yours. You have our promise that we will follow all guidelines set forth to keep your special person and our staff safe during programming. There were many questions about the return to programming. We have put together a quick FAQ for you to review. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me:  Melissa@courageleaguesports.com

June in-person and virtual programming

Our June programming will be offered in a very limited basis on Tuesdays and Thursdays only with 6 participants per class. Because of this, we ask that you only sign up for one class (either Tuesday or Thursday). Classes will only be provided at Valley Community Center in West Des Moines at this time. You will be able to register starting Tuesday, May 26. Our virtual Funcise classes will also continue on Facebook Live on Wednesdays only. COMING SOON: We will be adding Youtube Funcise classes very soon, so be on the lookout for those!
