Bend Endurance Academy (BEA) is excited to announce its upcoming free climbing team tryouts. Unlike traditional tryouts, our approach focuses on providing climbers the opportunity to experience the teams firsthand and find the best fit for their individual goals and climbing levels.
The open tryout days at Bend Endurance Academy are designed to give participants an immersive experience within the teams. Athletes will have the chance to explore the brand new climbing facility, engage with the team’s coaching staff, and connect with fellow team members. Each 90-minute practice will allow prospective team climbers to gain insight into the academy’s coaching methods and team dynamics.
Cate Beebe, climbing director at Bend Endurance Academy, emphasizes, “This tryout format is centered around the athletes. We hope to guide climbers towards teams that align with their skill level, season objectives, and overall climbing goals. As coaches, we are dedicated to providing a supportive environment for athletes to excel, no matter which team they choose.”
With tryout days for the Development and Competition teams, Bend Endurance Academy aims to foster the growth and progression of all young athletes interested in joining the program. Participation in the tryouts is a great opportunity for youth athletes to explore their climbing goals and connect with the BEA community. Interested participants are encouraged to sign up for a tryout day.
