Tiny Tiger Requirements

Each Tiny Tiger Belt Level has 5 stripes that they can earn on their belt.  Normally, the last Monday and Wednesday of the month (see monthly calendar) is when we do our Tiger Stripe Evaluation.  If a student earns all 5 stripes on their belt, they will be eligible to test for their next belt at the next scheduled examination.   Our Tiger Belt Exams are held every two months.
