Most Academy programs travel the region in 15-passengers vans. We lease the very newest models each summer and follow guidelines advised by the National Transit Safety Board to increase safety. In compliance with Colorado law, all of our students wear safety belts at all times, children that weigh less than 40 pounds use forward-facing car seats and 5-year-olds over 40 pounds use booster seats. Our instructors receive detailed training on van operation and must be at least 21 years of age and pass a background check to verify a clean driving record in order to drive vehicles.
