 While we are happy to offer in-person training opportunities to our members, the status of in-person training classes is subject to change at any time based upon guidance from state and local health officials as we are still in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic. The class schedule, duration, or format could change based on the direction of Phase Two and the status of the virus. 

It’s no secret that our classes will look different this year as we navigate our way through these challenges, so we ask that you follow all the rules set forward and understand that we are trying our best to mitigate the risks of transmission. 

There are inherent risks involved in participating in in-person training classes, races, and events. While we are doing our best to provide a safe environment, we cannot guarantee the safety of all involved. If you are concerned about your personal safety, we would suggest that you forego our in-person activities and consider our virtual options.

Social distancing, together with appropriate use of masks/face coverings, has been demonstrated as the best weapon that we have at this time in fighting the spread of this virus.
