2017 - 2018


School Programs

After school cycling, rock climbing and Nordic skiing.

We are fortunate to have local schools partner with our organization and support our mission of teaching children the joys of endurance sports.

Our after school programs provide participants the opportunity and access to learn how to navigate the forest in winter, problem-solve on the climbing wall, or discover amazing trail systems in our backyard. School Partnerships with Bend Endurance Academy help launch a lifetime of athletic and personal enrichment through playful activities in the outdoors. For Wednesday “early release” with the Bend La Pine School District, we pick up students for practice at many elementary, middle and high schools.

Programs with transportation are included here. Check our main Cycling, Rock Climbing and Nordic Skiing pages for additional options.

  • Five to eight weeks
  • Serves a large student population
  • Convenient pick up time for parents after 5PM
  • Each program is integrated within the overall development structure

Thursday Mountain Biking:

Ride the trails, learn how to ride the pump track, explore the forest as a team. Our coaches offer simple riding tips to encourage skills development and we play games to work on agility and teamwork. We will drive the Bus once we get more than 15 riders signed up, which would eliminate the need for car seats.

1. Riders must have their own Mountain Bike with wheels of at least 16″ in diameter. Wheels under 16″ do not work well on gravel, grass or dirt and the riders end up walking too much, even on flat ground so they don’t have much fun off the pavement.

2. Riders must also be capable of riding on Dirt and Gravel on Easy Trails.

  • Five Thursdays
  • Spring 2018: May 10, 17, 24, 31, June 7
  • Ages 4+: Must be 4 Years Old by the Program Start Date

  • 2:45PM to 5:00PM

Fall Thursday Rock Climbing 1:

We will shuttle in our van, so please bring a car-seat for your child. Due to limited space at the Bend Rock Gym, we offer two sessions.

  • October 19 – November 16, 2017

Winter Thursday Nordic Skiing:

Nordic skiing is the perfect way to stay active outdoors in the winter. Skiers rarely get cold because dressing properly and moving are natural elements of the sport. Skiers learn how to glide and stride by playing games and exploring the forest both on and off the trails. No experience necessary.

Use the “Gear Guide” in our Nordic Handbook (updated annually each October) to learn how to equip your child for skiing. Participants need one pair of classic skis (fish scales are best), poles that reach the shoulder, and well-fitted boots to match the bindings of the skis. Equipment may be rented for the entire program from most local Nordic ski shops. A complete list of equipment and logistics will be email prior to the start of the program.

Check out our Mini Nordie Club on Saturdays and Sundays, too!
