This season’s Youth Climbing Team has been rocking it! Our team of coaches have built a motivated group of young climbers through rigorous, but fun training. “This is one of the strongest groups of kid’s I’ve seen in the past few years” says PG Sunnyvale Coach, Mike Abell. “These kid’s are not only naturally talented, but are really driven towards improving physically and mentally.”
On May 14th, Planet Granite’s Competitive Climbing Team went head to head with some of the best youth climbers from the area at the Northern California Regionals in Reno, Nevada. The competition was tough, but our team pulled through! Seven of our competitors are invited to compete at Divisionals in Salt Lake City, Utah on June 12th! Overall, our team placed 2nd, beating out some teams with twice the number of kids competing (team scores are a cumulative score from every competitor)! Way to go PG Team!
To help send our coaches to SLC, we’re having a bake sale! This Monday and Wednesday, our team is selling scrumptious and yummy home-baked delicousness. Stop by!
Congrats to our PG Competitive Climbing Team:
