The Planet Granite Youth Climbing Teams are year-round programs designed for kids who are ready to take the next step in climbing. Our teams foster a love of both climbing and the mental and physical challenges climbing can present. Our curriculum focuses on advancing technical skill and increasing physical conditioning while maintaining a cooperative environment fueled by the support of fellow team members. Depending on skill level, kids are placed in one of four teams: Introductory, Intermediate/Advanced, Competition 2, or Competition 1.
CAN MY CHILD JOIN THE CLIMBING TEAM?
Climbing team is for youth ages 8-18. We ask that your child have the desire, passion and dedication to excel at climbing. All candidates are asked to meet with the Head Coach for an assessment. Please email our team to set this up.
HOW DOES MEMBERSHIP WORK?
We offer a discounted membership price for team members. Team dues are not discounted further if your child is already a member, is part of a family membership, or does not want a membership.
Since the team meets year round, we understand that there will be times, either due to school, vacations, or other schedule conflicts, that you will want to place your team membership on hold. Team memberships are treated similarly to our regular monthly memberships; we can freeze or cancel your membership. Freezes must start on the 1st of the month, and cancels are effective on the last day of the month. Please email Membership to freeze your membership.
WHAT IS THE PARENT'S ROLE IN THE TEAM?
We encourage parents to play an active role in their child’s climbing team by attending competitions, volunteering when possible, and by supporting your child as they develop their skills as a climber both in and out of practice.
Every participant and coach is choosing to be part of a team with a common mission to develop high performing climbing athletes in a way that emphasizes fun, fosters a love of the sport, and supports each team member’s personal development and growth. If at any time a parent has a concerns, we encourage them to reach out to the Youth Protection Committee.
