Beginner Club

If your young athlete is a natural climber or needs a fun, confidence, and self-esteem boosting activity, join us to explore the basics of rock climbing.

Climbers will continue to build upon this foundation as they move up through our program.

Our Intermediate curriculum builds on the foundation of movement skills established in our Beginner Club.

We also introduce climbers to ways they can build core strength and endurance with short workouts.
