Planet Rock’s Youth Team Program is designed for young climbers in the Youth D category of the USA Climbing Division who are ready to push themselves to new heights. Kids will gain confidence, increase body awareness and develop critical thinking skills. The Youth Team will prepare kids with the techniques and strategies needed to excel in climbing. Climbers enrolled in our recreational programs who show motivation and have mastered some basic skills will be invited to join the Youth Team. Climbers will be introduced to the world of competition climbing. The Youth Team is an invitation only program.
Youth Team members should be able to follow directions and workouts without constant reminders, be focused on climbing when at practice and work on improving. Youth Team practice will be 2 days a week. All Youth team members are required to be on time, stay for the entire duration of practice and participate in all activities that are a part of Team practice. Youth Team members are required to compete in two local USA Climbing Sanctioned competitions and the resulting USA Climbing Regionals Competition. Youth Team members will need to sign a Team contract agreeing to Youth Team requirements.
