Recreational Climbing Team
Recreational Teams offer kids ages 8-18 a fantastic opportunity to get involved in and progress through the sport of climbing without the intense pressures of training for the competitive climbing scene.
Our Recreational Climbing Teams seek to provide kids a way to be more active by getting involved in a unique sport that is fun, challenging, and rewarding at the same time. Because children require varied approaches to their physical health at different stages in life, we have split up our Recreational Teams into two groups: Rec Team 1 (7-11 y/o) and Rec Team 2 (12-17 y/o). Both teams are coached by our professional staff who create a fun and relaxed environment while emphasizing the fundamentals of climbing, such as warming up, basic technique, balance, strength training, mental strategy, and team building. These teams are guaranteed to introduce kids to others with the same level of interest, forming lasting relationships within our young climbing community.
Competitive Climbing Team
Our more rigorous competitive team is designed for advanced and dedicated climbers ages 8-18 who are prepared to condition themselves for the sport of climbing at the competitive level.
Our Competitive Climbing Team strives to instill each participant with a love for climbing and to recognize the sport as a fun, lifelong form of recreation that maintains health and provides a sense of adventure that most other sports cannot. Led by Head Coach Jim Hardy, the team coaches develop training regimens consisting of advanced climbing technique, climbing-specific strength training, injury prevention, strength workouts, and team building. While aiming to have fun, as the kids get stronger and grow as individuals as well as climbers, the focus on competing is ongoing as the teams train for local, regional, divisional, and national level USA Climbing competitions.

This team is all about developing the basics. It is designed to provide kids with basic technique, instruction, and climbing to enhance their knowledge of the sport. Sessions will include warm up exercises, stretches, both bouldering and top rope climbing, and plenty of games and activities.

Rec Team 2 is designed for older or more experienced climbers who both want to learn to climb and/or want to become better climbers. This team not only provides a great environment for new climbers who are too old for Rec Team 1, but it is also a perfect fit for experienced climbers who are interested in learning more and becoming stronger without having to compete. Sessions consist of a brief warm up, advanced climbing drills to hone in on different techniques and build strength, and group workouts. Rec Team includes a membership to CRG and all Team Members are encouraged to utilize their membership and come to the gym outside of practice times.

Coaches create a more intense schedule and workout routines focused specifically toward competition to further propel our climbers into the world of competitive climbing.
