The ASC's Season
The clubs of ASC start their year in September and go on until April. The specific start dates, night of week and location are available for each club in Find a Club.
There is no best time to join except now. You start your own programme and you dictate the speed of your development. You work to the programme laid out in the manual. There is no club curriculum timescale, only your own personal one.
This works well as it means that many members are at different levels within the education programme, making evenings more interesting and allowing newer members to get a glimpse at what is to come.
