Your youth activity center is growing–fast. Much can change from day to day. Throughout the course of a week, your program will face new challenges and opportunities, which requires time and focus from the entire team at your gymnastics gym, swim school or dance studio. That’s why now is the perfect time to ensure that you’re using Jackrabbit Class effectively.
As your program continues to bounce back, it’s important to have the right class management software that supports the needs of your business. You need an application that allows you to do more in less time.
That’s where Jackrabbit Class comes in.
