If you are an active member please reserve your equipment on the un-coached reservations section of the calendar for the lesson day. If you are not an active member let the coach know that in your email so they can reserve the equipment and arrange payment. Pay the coaches through your member page under "additional payments" with a memo indicating the coach's name and date of lesson.
