CLIMBING CLASSES

Our goal is to help your child gain strength, knowledge, and self-confidence while building friendships along the way. We offer a variety of programs suited for your preschooler up to your high school student, whether they're interested in recreational climbing, team competition, or parkour. 

When enrolled in a youth program, your child receives membership benefits to Challenge Rocks which include:

  • Unlimited access to auto belays, bouldering, and American Ninja Warrior props

  • FREE Harness and shoe rental

  • Parents receive FREE belay certification

  • Sibling discount (10% off for each additional sibling)


We will run on the school calendar year (Sept 1, 2020- June 30, 2021) and offer ongoing, open enrollment for our classes, on a monthly tuition basis. As long as there is an opening in a class, you have the opportunity to become an active participant.

 

We're here to help you and your child enter into the joy of rock climbing and parkour.  Please contact us with any questions you may have.

Cliff Hangers 1 is a beginner class for students with little or no previous climbing experience. Students will be introduced to basic climbing, bouldering, and belaying techniques.

Students will build upper body strength and increase coordination as they are encouraged to climb to the top of the wall.

Cliff Hangers 2 is an intermediate class for climbers who have demonstrated proficiency in the Rock Stars Program or have already mastered basic climbing skills. Students will continue to build upper body strength and coordination as they learn new climbing and bouldering techniques. New terminology, gear, and knots will be introduced. The importance of safety, cooperation and communication will be constantly reinforced as students develop belaying skills.

Over the Edge is open to all levels of climbers. No climbing experience is necessary. Students will learn use of gear and terminology, and practice climbing and bouldering techniques in accordance with their own individual experience and ability levels.

Students will become familiar with climbing gear and terminology, along with the very basic techniques of climbing and bouldering.

Pre-Team A is for young climbers that can climb a 5.8 grade or higher, but aren't yet ready for the commitment. Pre-Team enrollment is per session (fall, winter, and spring) while Team enrollment is for the whole school year. Pre-Team also meets once per week rather than twice per week as Team does. While the rock climbing training is the same, Pre-Team kids won't compete in events. Climbers in Pre-Team can transfer to Team when they are ready.
