Non-Competitive Youth Teams
Non-competitive teams are designed for children 6-18 years old who are motivated to learn the fundamentals of climbing. Teams are divided by age group. Our instructors will introduce lessons in climbing technique, proper equipment usage, games and team activities, and open climbing time to keep our athletes engaged and in motion. Athletes will also learn climbing gym etiquette and will be held to a high standard of behavior so they can interact with and enjoy the multi-age and diverse climbing community and all it has to offer.
Coaches will meet athletes at their individual level of strength and comfort and help them progress.
