Climbing Team

Rock climbing can be a lifelong sport, and that’s how we approach coaching the kids on the Y teams. We offer 3 teams, separated by age to offer developmentally appropriate programming to each group. The Teams are Teen Team (13+), A-Team (9-12), and B-Team (6-8). 

All teams welcome a mixture of ability levels from beginner to advance.  Coaches’ break the teams into groups to give more directed, individual or small group attention on skills. Major focuses for all teams are:

  • to help kids learn specific rock climbing techniques,
  • build strength and increase balance,
  • understand and improve body mind connection and
  • have fun!

The kids will have the option to compete in competitions if they wish. If not, we also offer opportunities to climb outside at the local crags. 

Registration for the Winter/Spring season is open! Practice starts February 1st! Participants must fill out a registration form, as well as pay for the first session, before their space is reserved.
