Bend Endurance Academy Community,
We’ve been paying close attention to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the impacts it’s having locally and regionally. Bend Endurance Academy takes our role and responsibility to our participants, their families, our staff, and the Bend community very seriously.
Currently, BEA’s Board and staff have been working to make informed and collaborative decisions in regards to our current and upcoming programs and events. At this point there is immediate action and impact to our Youth Climbing Programs that are running currently. Based off of information and action taken by the Bend La Pine School District and in collaboration with Bend Rock Gym, we are temporarily halting all scheduled climbing team practices from Monday, March 16th until Monday, March 30th.
With our spring cycling programs scheduled to start in 30 days, we are still evaluating the best course of action as we pay close attention to what our local and regional public health officials, and the Bend La Pine School District are recommending. We will be aiming to make a final call at least 16 days out from the start of spring programs. We feel that at that time we will be able to make the best informed decision for the general well being of our participants and families.
In the meantime, we want to remind folks of our cancellation and refund policy and encourage individuals to purchase Registration Protection through Booking Protect during the checkout process.
Please know that Bend Endurance Academy will continue to evaluate this dynamic situation and keep the best interest of our families and community in mind while making these decisions.
