CLASS OFFERINGS

Here is our list of class offerings grouped by age. To see the full schedule of classes currently available, click “Enroll Your Child”.

Ages 4-5: Spider Monkeys

Spider Monkeys (ages 4-5) learn climbing without knowing they’re learning. Through a multitude of climbing and movement games, we build body awareness, balance, and confidence – all while having an absolute blast.

Spider Monkeys Schedule for Next Session: 

Thu: 5:00 pm | Sat: 10:00 am

 

 

 

Ages 5-6: Scramblers

Scramblers (ages 5-6) engage in many forms of climbing in pursuit of their first “summit” of our rock walls while learning basic safety skills, footwork, and movement skills. Through student-centered games, we encourage each student to attempt climbs on terrain they might not otherwise try, and we strive to make their time on the wall instructive, satisfying, and a whole lot of fun.

Scramblers Schedule for Next Session: 

Mon: 5:00 pm

 

 

Ages 7-10: Rock Warriors

Rock Warriors (ages 7-10) engage in all styles of climbing to refine core movement skills, master intermediate footwork and begin to develop a fundamental understanding of the interaction between body position, gravity, and rock. We incorporate unique movement specific exercises to develop motor memory and an intuitive feeling for how to attack any combination of rock holds and positions.

Rock Warriors Schedule for Next Session: 

Mon/Thu: 6:00 pm | Sat: 11:00 am

 

 

Ages 11-16: Stone Masters

Stone Masters (ages 11-13) continue building their climbing skill set by exploring more complex “specialty” moves, sequencing skills, advanced rope work, and strength training for climbing. Some Stone Masters may work toward our Team Prep series (or even a direct try-out for the competitive team). Several levels of Advanced Curriculum are available for returning Stone Masters, and will be applied individually, at the instructors discretion.

Rock Warriors Schedule for Next Session:
