During the Covid-19 pandemic, our school remained closed for 3 months with no income and no allowance! With the resumption of our activities, few members have returned to training, with the natural consequence that the costs cannot be paid and the school's survival in the summer months is questionable. For this reason, we have added a "button" for offers on our website. Each offer will help us overcome this difficult period.
