YOUTH CLIMBING TEAM

Thursday, Oct. 13, 2022 - July 2, 2023

5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Bigfoot Climbing Gym is happy to restart the third year of our Youth Climbing Team. Team members of all levels are welcome. Our coaches will teach self-confidence, problem solving, determination, sportsmanship, and positivity. We strive for your child/teen to have fun, get great exercise, and improve at one of the fastest growing sports!

As climbing competitions again become a reality, we will form the Bigfoot (advanced) competition team which will be invite only. Our Climbing team is open to Bigfoot members ages 8-17.

Practice on Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30pm to 7:30pm

The team is designed to improve our climbers skills. Some past climbing experience, enjoyment of the sport, and a desire to improve would be the traits of this climber.

Coaches will focus on proper and safe climbing, advanced climbing techniques, training regimens, and much more. Advanced climbers would also be included in this group. Coaching will be catered to both intermediate and advanced team members. Intermediate teammates will be given the tools and tips to become better climbers.

Intro Team- $110 per month

New this year will be the addition of a beginner team. This group will meet Monday at 5:30-7:00pm. Minimum age will be 6, but will be suitable for newer climbers up to 12 years old. This group will focus on climbing games, free climbing, and introducing basic climbing techniques. There will be no strength training. At this age and skill level, our emphasis will be on the joy of climbing.

Intermediate Team- $135 per month for 1 day per week, and $170 per month for both days

Our intermediate team will meet on Monday and Thursday from 5:30-7:30pm. Minimum age of 8, unless the coaching staff approves an exception. Parents still have the option to choose one day per week, or both days. If you chose one day per week, Thursdays would be best. If you choose both days, Mondays will be held with the Intro team and Thursdays will be held with the Comp team. Thursdays will include some strength training. 

Comp/Advanced Team- $170 per month.

The comp team will meet on Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30-7:30. Tuesdays will be solely devoted to this group and Thursdays will be held with the Intermediate team. My goal here is to have a smaller group with more individualized attention, training, and techniques. Minimum age of 8 and attending both practices is strongly encouraged. Coaches will discuss and approve exceptions to both day attendance. Team members are also encouraged to compete in local and championship USA Climbing events. Our comp team will require coaches approval or invitation, so please check with me before the season begins. 

Pricing will be as follows: 

Beginner Team: $110 per month. 

Intermediate Team: $135 per month for 1 day per week, and $170 per month for both days.

Comp Team: $170 per month.

As always, any team member also gets a full gym membership, granting access to the gym whenever they want to climb. 

The Comp Team will begin on Tuesday, Sept 6th. 

The Intermediate Team will begin on Thursday Sept. 8th.

The Beginner Team will begin on Monday, Sept. 12th.
