Due to today’s official state-wide coronavirus emergency declaration, all health and fitness clubs and indoor recreational facilities must close. That includes all classes and lessons at RCFC. We agree with the decision to limit people’s participation in non-essential activities in order to control the spread of the outbreak.
Effective immediately, we will place everyone’s memberships on hold. If your account is set up for automatic payment, we will be double-checking our attendance records to make sure you are only charged for bills before March, and classes or lessons actually attended. Those charges will be processed later this week.
Once we return to a normal schedule, we will apply account credits for customers who purchased annual class and/or tournament packages. Unfortunately it is not possible to issue partial refunds through our membership system.
All tournaments in the month of March are cancelled. We will evaluate the April and May schedule later this month. Watch our website and AskFRED for updates.
The Rain City Super Youth Circuit will also be postponed or cancelled, given the CDC recommendation to avoid groups of 50 or more people for the next 8 weeks. We are working with the USA Fencing national office on the best way to handle the refund process.
Our coaches are brainstorming ideas for practice videos and other ways that fencers can continue to learn at home. Check our website for updates on that, as well as the latest news.
We appreciate your support during this difficult time, and hope to get back to normal as soon as it is safe to do so. Stay home, stay healthy, and wash your hands!
