Youth Recreational Program
This program focuses on learning and refining the fundamentals of climbing; body position, footwork and movement, as well as learning hold types, grades and all the terminology to turn them into proper climbers!
Each lesson begins with warm ups followed by technique drills. We try to plan out a variety of drills to cater to both newcomers and returning experienced members. After drills and exercises there is a mix of bouldering and top rope climbing time and often with the younger kids we’ll gather together for a game or a group activity to keep things fun and get the kids working together.
There are three age categories; 5-9, 10-12 and 13-18. The program runs three times a year; fall, winter and spring. The upcoming spring program runs for 9 sessions long. For kids in the 5-9 year old group each session is 90 minutes long, for those in the 10-12 & 13-18 year old groups, each session is 2 hours long. Kids in the older two categories also have the opportunity to learn how to top rope belay in a safe, supervised environment.
Registration is open to all levels of ability and no experience is necessary. The equipment required – shoes, harness and chalk, is included during the sessions.
All youth programs qualify for the Federal government Children’s Fitness Tax Credit.
