TEAM BRIDGES

Our Youth Competitive Climbing Programs are dedicated to training the next generation of competition climbers.

COMPETITION TEAM
$295/mo | $50 Initiation

Our premier competition climbing team. Athletes on our competition team compete in the USA Climbing (USAC) youth bouldering season in the Fall, as well as the Northern California Youth Climbing League (YCL) in Winter and Spring.

 

Athletes on our competition team are personally invested in the sport of climbing and work hard to achieve their athletic goals. If you’re driven to be the best climber you can be and want to try hard day in and day out, this is the team for you.

 

Climbers will be chosen for this team based on their commitment to the sport as well as their attitude, aptitude, and ability to excel on the team. Additional competition registration fees and travel/lodging fees will apply, especially for climbers competing at the national level. Climbers are expected to provide their own equipment.

Climbing Club
$140/mo | $50 Initiation

Our Climbing Club is a great opportunity for your little crushers to get their feet wet in the sport of climbing. Bouldering is a very rewarding experience, but it can also be an emotionally taxing sport. Not being able to complete a climb can be frustrating, especially at a young age. Because of these challenges, during practice we use a dedicated room just for the program. We also incorporate play-based workouts to help our climbers build a solid foundation that will set them up for the rest of their climbing career. Climbing Club participants do not compete in any leagues. If you have interest in competing let your coach know!

 

We find ways to provide personalized challenges that help to grow their self-esteem, physical abilities and social development as they enter the exciting world of rock climbing!

 

Climbers should have a great attitude, and be ready to have lots of fun!

 

We have five separate climbing clubs, each of which meet once per week according to age group:

 

After School Climbing Club Practice

Ages 7-10 Monday 4:00-6:00 pm

Ages 7-10 Tuesday 4:00-6:00 pm

Ages 4-7 Wednesday 4:00-6:00 pm

Ages 4-7 Thursday 4:00-6:00 pm

Ages 4-7 Friday 4:00-6:00 pm
