SCHOOL OF ROCK
Climbing isn't just a sport, it's a way of life. At ClubSport, we have two youth climbing teams to suit the different interests and abilities of every kid. We encourage all team members to set their own goals and provide them with the guidance necessary to develop their skills and love for the sport.
Participation in our climbing teams requires a successful tryout and approval by the head coach. Prospective team members are allowed to try out for one or both teams.
This isn't a competition but rather a chance for climbers to try out our latest assortment of boulder problems. Join in on this fun social event, which features a DJ and a free raffle for a chance to win amazing prizes. Boulderdash is held every other month.
