Welcome to The Academy at Climber's Rock

 

The Academy at Climber's Rock is a developmental climbing program for youth ages 4-17, built around the two most fundamental benefits of sport: FUN and FITNESS.
Whether students end up going on to be enthusiastic recreational climbers or world-class competitive athletes, it is our firm belief that climbing in any form contributes to happier, healthy living. After completing a session at the Academy, participants will have the power to tackle any challenge with the confidence and strength they need to be successful.

FOUNDATION

Our youth programming is ambitious. Our goal is to create an environment where kids will be both challenged and rewarded for their hard work. Climbing is about 'how the body moves' and therefore is a foundation sport for all physical activity and sports. Early participation in climbing develops the most fundamental movement skills, physical and motor abilities, mental abilities, social and emotional abilities and performance skills that carry over into all aspects of life.

Youth programs at Climber's Rock use the sport of rock climbing to inspire young people from age 4 to 17 to remain healthy, strong, and determined both mentally and physically. We aim to help youth excel at any sport or activity through the building of skills such as setting goals, staying fit, becoming stronger and remaining focused on tasks.

EXPECTATIONS

Our number one goal is to give youth the chance to get fit, learn the value of discipline and hard work, and strengthen their mental capacity. No matter what other sports or activities a youth is involved in, our programs will help them to reach and exceed the goals they have set for themselves.

We are looking for participants who are coachable, respectful, ready to learn, able to maintain a positive attitude, and willing to work to challenge themselves. Our coaches and instructors are selected based on their experiences as both an athlete and a coach. All have diverse backgrounds in a variety of different sports, in addition to climbing, with years of experience developing programs and learning techniques to prepare youth for competitive sports.

RESULTS

The sport of indoor rock climbing is not only fun, but also demanding both mentally and physically. It is a great opportunity for young people to learn the principles that will lead them to success in all that they do.
