Our non-competitive teams offer kids a fantastic opportunity to get involved in the sport of climbing during the school year without the pressure of competition and intense training of the more advanced climbing teams. The Non-Competitive programs are split up into two groups: Climbing Club and Recreational Team. Each is geared toward new climbers and recreational climbers alike who have an interest in participating in the sport and even to improve their abilities over time. 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 their same level of interest and form lasting relationships within our young climbing community. If you are still not sure about what team you’d like your child to join after reading the descriptions below, please email the Youth Program Director, Erica (firstname.lastname@example.org), to help guide you in the right direction.
Climbing Club – Designed for new climbers ages 8-13 who both want to climb and/or want to become better climbers but don’t want to commit to the longer, more strenuous practices. This team is all about developing the basics. It is designed by the coaches to provide kids with basic technique, instruction, and climbing to enhance their knowledge of the sport. Sessions will include warm up exercises, both bouldering and top rope climbing, and plenty of games and activities. Climbing Club is run by head coach Erica (email@example.com) on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 3-5 pm as well as Saturdays and Sundays from 4-6pm. Kids have the option to attend one, two, or three times per week. Please email Erica to further inquire about the program, to check current openings or to register.
Recreational Team – Our Recreational Team is designed for new and returning kids ages 10-16 who have either aged out of or advanced out of Climbing Club because they have a desire to become better climbers. This team provides a great environment for those who are both interested in learning more and are motivated to become stronger, more technical climbers without competition being mandatory. Sessions consist of a warm up, climbing drills to hone in on different techniques and build strength, group workouts, and team building activities. Coach John (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the head coach of Rec Team. The program is offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3-5 pm as well as from 9-11 am on Saturdays and Sundays. Participants have the option to attend one, two, or three times per week. Please email John to further inquire about the program, check current openings or to register.
