Social media is becoming more and more a part of everyday life with each passing year. I say this because I notice that a little less than half of our online members are on the ATN members Facebook page.
Remember, it’s a private group, therefore, no one but the members in the ATN facebook group can see any content or posts… it’s a covert operation 😉
Make the 2017 season the best ever!

- Current technical Level,
- Aptitude/Body Awareness, and
- Talent level
