    16 - 4x 4 hours. They do get a snack break and can take 1 rotation for homework at each practice, except Friday.

    I honestly have no idea, which probably sounds really rude, sorry. I *think* they are there 3 days a week, and can’t imagine them going more than 3 hours each time.

    I would rather they not do snack and homework and get done and home quicker.

    Our practices no matter the level top out at 3 hours most days, exceptions camp days and special training sessions. They work hard for 3 hours, no snack time and are done.

    Everyone finds the fit that works for them.

    I wish our gym topped out at 3 hour practices (at least for the lower levels.)

    Agreed. Our 4s do 3 x 4 hours, but I would much prefer 4 x 3 hours.
