Competitive Climbing Team

The Competitive Team is designed for those climbers aiming to hone their technique, build strength, and contribute to a passionate and supportive team environment. Unlike some teams, however, Competitive Team members do not need to attend competitions, but instead demonstrate exemplary commitment to the sport and their teammates. Comp Team members are expected to apply high effort toward their own climbing goals, supporting their teammates, and uplifting peer accomplishments along the way.  However, Comp Team is not an elite team that is reserved only for climbers at a certain physical level. While a minimum understanding climbing movement, instruction techniques, and terminology is helpful, the only requirement is a commitment to self-growth as a climber.

Coaches Jasper and Kris are AMGA-Certified Single Pitch Instructors and Wilderness First Responders, eager to take the kids climbing outside as frequently as possible. Their goal for the team is to help their kids create a vision of where they want their climbing to lead, and help them along their way. Goals for the team and individual members are supported by creating a safe, accepting, and welcoming environment for successes and failures.

Practices are Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday 5:30-7:30 PM. With coach approval, climbers may opt into a 2x practice per week schedule.
