    Once a test has started, late students may not enter. We have a LARGE number of people testing. Please be on time to help ensure it runs smoothly! Please be patient as we work through it! While we do our best to make test run efficiently, but we still have to work through the requirements. Large tests like this often lead to late nights, especially for the teens.

    Yellow, Sr. Yellow and Orange Belts — 5:35 pm

    Sr. Orange Belts – 6:15 pm

    Purple and Brown Belts — 7:15 pm



    If possible, teenagers should show up at 5 pm to help with the children’s test. If not, then please show by 6:30 pm. The teenager test will begin immediately after the children’s tests end. Again, Teens please show no later than 6:30pm!

    All teens should show for the test whether or not they are testing. Please support your teammates and plan to be there for the entire test.
