The Competitive Team is our most elite team, geared towards preparing climbers for the USA Climbing competitive seasons. We meet four days a week from 4:30pm-7:30pm. All climbers are expected to compete in both the Bouldering (Fall/Winter) and Sport (Spring/Summer) Seasons. The tryouts for the Competitive Team will allow the coaches to evaluate the climber’s ability to follow directions, push themselves, and their raw climbing talent. Although we have practice four days a week, we don’t plan on having high intensity workouts every day. The coaching team will make strategic choices on when to push climbers and when to allow for active resting and more relaxed practices. Although everyone is encouraged to be at every practice, we understand that committing four days every week can be challenging. Practice will be structured so that if you must miss occasionally, you are encouraged to miss Monday or Wednesday practices. We will have full coaching staff on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and a leaner team on Mondays and Wednesdays. We will plan our agenda assuming everyone will be there Tuesday and Thursday.
The USA Climbing Seasons consist of at least two local competitions, a Regional Championship, a Divisional Championship, and a National Championship. Everyone is expected to compete in the minimum two local competitions to qualify for Regionals and compete in Regionals. Anyone who qualifies for Divisionals or Nationals will be expected to compete. Appropriate coaching staff will be sent to the necessary competitions.
