Climbing Club is a new, one-day per week program where kids have the opportunity to learn to climb in a fun, welcoming environment with no prior experience necessary. Utilizing a dedicated room just for the program, Climbing Club members will learn:
Confidence + Self Awareness
Proprioception + Movement Skills
Problem Solving + Growth Mindset
Bouldering Safety + Etiquette
Climbing Club differs from Team Bridges in that there is no competition requirement.
Climbers will be chosen for Climbing Club based on their interest in the sport and their receptivity to feedback, learning + growth.
We have five separate Climbing Clubs, which meet one day/week according to age group. All groups meet after school from 4pm-6pm.
4:00-6:00pm Ages 7-10
4:00-6:00pm After School, Ages 4-7
In order to protect the integrity of the program, and offer your climbers a high level of individual attention, we maintain a strict 1 to 6 (or 1 to 4 for Juniors) coach to climber ratio. Most teams are at or near capacity, and we currently have a waitlist for all teams. Waitlist times vary - but could be over a year. We tend to see movement at the stand and end of each school semester. If your child is interested, our recommendation is to sign up as soon as possible.
In order to secure your climber's spot on one of our teams:
Click here to complete a Team Bridges Membership Agreement and pay your $50/climber initiation fee, at which point your climber will be placed on the waitlist for your selected team.
Your Initiation Fee secures your climber's spot on our waitlist, their try out session, and their Team shirt if they are accepted onto Team Bridges. If you would like to give up your spot on our waitlist, the fee is refundable.
When a spot opens up, we will invite your climber to try out at our next practice. If selected for the team, your climber will begin practice later that week, and we will bill your prorated dues for the month. We will not invite your climber to try out until we actually have a spot for them.
For more detailed information check out our Team Bridges Primer & Code of Conduct. If you have any questions about what team to sign up for, please reach out to our Youth Program Manager, Josué: email@example.com.
Coming to tryouts? Save time by filling out a Liability Waiver and Medical Treatment Release Form for your climber before you come. Each minor needs to have both of these forms completed by a parent or legal guardian before participating in tryouts.
