BBSEF in-person Conditioning Week of 10/26
by posted 10/24/2020

Hello Freeride Travel Team Athletes and Families,


We've moved Monday's session at Elm Grove back to 4:00-5:00 as it sounds like this is a better fit for many of your schedules. We have also consolidated Thursday's Elm Grove session down to a single session which will take place from 4:00-5:00pm. Although we've scheduled each session to last an hour, most of them run about 45 minutes. If those of you picking athletes up are able to arrive 10 minutes before the hour, that would be great.

We're monitoring Covid closely and with the increasing infection rates and local health district shifting back into a red phase, we will assess the prudence of continued in-person training over the weekend and through the week. We will email by mid-day Monday (and will shoot for Sunday evening if possible) to update you on whether or not we plan to move forward with in-person training for the week. This makes registering with Arn's program an even better idea as using the app-based approach will allow athletes to continue on the same programming at home. 

The doodle poll is here:

Thank you,
