Age Range: 7-11
Description: This program is designed to teach children the basics of rock climbing through games, group activities, and one-on-one instruction. Each climber creates a set of personal goals with guidance from their coaches and works to complete these goals throughout the semester. Coaches also teach gym safety, climbing technique, and belaying skills while keeping the class fun and interactive. We work to develop leadership, build confidence, and increase teamwork throughout the session in an environment where climbers can challenge themselves because we believe the skills acquired in the climbing gym directly translate to school, home, and social situations.
Expectations: R&J prides itself in developing strong character in each and every climber in our club programs. Rockers are expected to support and encourage each other as they grow the passion for climbing.
Practice Schedule: 1.5-hour practices, once per week (practice days/times dependent on location)
Fee: $170 per 8-week session (Membership for duration of session available for $60 more)
Requirements to Join: Climbers must fit the age range specified and be attentive enough to learn belaying and climbing skills in a 1:5 coach to climber ratio.
Limited space may still be available for the current session. Registration for the next session is now open. Please contact either gym directly or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
