These classes are for all abilities including new and returning climbers looking to have fun. In this program we provide supervised climbing and allow children to explore bouldering, autobelays, and top-roping. It is a great program to expose children to climbing and physical literacy.
Skill Development, along with Fun and Games with climbing!
Kids are introduced to indoor climbing in a play-based setting. In the older age groups there are more skills and drills interspersed with games and free ranging climbing opportunities.
During their climbing hour they are issued a harness and spend time with other kids and their coach playing "games with aims" both on and off the walls. They learn basic climbing safety, develop movement skills, and work on their communication skills as they pertain to climbing and teamwork. Above all they have fun and burn off lots of energy! In addition to games, our Mountain Goats are introduced to some drills, specific training techniques, and coached to improve their skills.
Kids get the most of the program when they also drop in at other times of the week with their family or other program participants, so they can practice and grow into the sport.
To support the child growing into the sport, we support the participation of their family!
