Will Shred Sisters cancel or alter a program?
As a rule we do our best to avoid cancelling any program or clinic offered however we do sometimes need to utilize this option if we encounter very low registration to a specific class. If we have a total of 4 participants registered the class goes ahead with no modifications. In the case we have 3 or less we prefer to modify the program where possible by shortening the class length or amount of days of instruction. As fewer participants allows us to provide a comprehensive program in a shorter period of time, there is no change to the instruction delivered or material covered and thus no change to the cost of the program.
What happens if there is inclement weather or it is raining?
Course will be running shine or liquid sunshine. Always be prepared with extra clothing during inclement weather sessions. The best way to get comfortable with slippery roots is to take a course when it is raining, there is technique to be learned and this will increase your enjoyment on trails. It is rare for us to cancel a program due to any kind of weather conditions as we do know how quickly weather forecasts can change. Our coaches work hard to be up to date on the best trails for the conditions at the time of the lesson and will adjust and pivot the lessons as required for the expected weather conditions. It is your responsibility that if you aren’t comfortable with the condition to walk the terrain or stay home.
