2019 In Review

Our inaugural year at SASS Go will be remembered as a celebratory time of expanding borders, inspiring new communities, and safeguarding lives all over the country. 


In this first year, SASS Go and it's incredible team of instructors, trained thousands of people in 15 different states and the District of Columbia.  Over 40% of our participants trained for free or a reduced cost.  Our instructor army size doubled and we have officially became a bi-coastal organization.  If you'd like to know what else we accomplished in 2019, just click below.
