The Competitive Junior Varsity Team is a select team of hard-working and passionate climbers. Climbers on this team are expected to have learned fundamental technical skills and movement, while displaying coachability, a positive attitude, and a desire for growth. Climbers must be comfortable and confident in bouldering and top-rope climbing/belaying. Those ages 13 and up must also be proficient in lead climbing/belaying. Climbers must be self-disciplined about their training and passionate about climbing.
Team members train intensely to further their overall fitness, while learning critical competition strategies and honing a positive, competitive mindset. Through competition-climbing specific training regimens and exercises, members of this team will see their climbing skills improve significantly.
From September through February, this team will focus on bouldering, and from February through June, sport climbing. This team trains in both the CRG Glastonbury and CRG West Hartford facilities, and our training culminates in required participation in USA Climbing’s local-, regional-, divisional-, and national-level competitions.
A and JRs (birthyear 2005-2008): Tuesday practices held at CRG Glastonbury, Thursday practices held at CRG West Hartford.
Bs (birthyear 2009-2010) and Cs (birthyear 20011-2012) : Tuesday practices held at CRG West Hartford, Thursday practices held at CRG Glastonbury.
