YOUTH PROGRAMS FAQ:

Q: How will social distancing be enforced during classes?
A: While in the classroom and gym the students will be encouraged to keep space from one another as we do warm ups, climbs, and stretching. 

Q: Are masks required?
A: Per Governor Inslee’s mask mandate students are required to wear masks unless they have medical complications. We ask that students where their masks as much as possible and we will have an assigned spot where they can go to drink their water and take a break when needed one at a time.

Q: Are the water fountains available for use?
A: At this time the water fountains are closed to stay within Washington’s Safe Start guidelines. Please make sure to have your student bring a filled water bottle to class.

Q: Youth memberships used to be included with the class. What changed?
A: Not all youth take advantage of the youth membership. Rather than increase the price of classes this year we wanted to give parents an option to include the youth membership or not. By including the youth membership you save 20% over the three months. Additionally, if you sign up for a youth membership after the 3 months we will waive the $40 signup fee.

Q: The homeschool class used to be 2 hours. Why is it now only 1.5 hours, but the same price as the 2 hour classes?
A: The new format of the homeschool class is that it will be personalized instruction for each student attending. Rather than having one curriculum for all levels, the instructor will adapt instruction to what is needed based on the student’s age and ability level. Additionally, if there is any paperwork or specific workouts required or requested for the PE credit this would be the class that we can make that happen.

Q: If classes fill up will other options be added?
A: We will evaluate adding classes on a case by case basis.

Q: If my child is exposed or shows symptoms and has to miss class how will the classes be made up?
A: We will offer a two week pass for the youth and supervising adult so they can come in and climb. Our Youth Coordinator, Emily, will also email out lesson plans for the weeks missed.
