We offer multiple levels of team to suit different interests and abilities.
Elevation Climbing Team
Team climbers should have a strong desire to participate in structured climbing sessions in order to learn more about the sport, develop climbing-specific strengths and skills, and form relationships with others who share similar interests.
Advanced Team is for our most dedicated youth climbers. Advanced Team members consider climbing to be their primary extracurricular activity, and exhibit determination to progress as well-rounded climbers, supportive teammates, and stewards of the community.
Advanced team details
Yes! Competitions are an optional focal tool for all team climbers, but are not required. Comps can be a fun way to challenge yourself and connect with the larger climbing community.
No, all climbers who would like to participate in competitions will be supported in their competitive goals. It is worth noting, however, that the additional practice time and training Advanced Team members receive is helpful for those who want to be successful in a competitive environment.
Yes, the team is for climbers who have prior experience. If you are new to climbing, we recommend that you check out Ninja Club instead (ages 6-12). If you are age 13+, try a Youth Intro Class followed by some self-guided climbing before trying out for the team.
Tryouts take place in early September. If you missed the September tryout and would like to join mid-season, please apply here. When space is available, we are happy to accommodate new additions mid-season. If no space is available, you will be added to a waitlist.
You don’t need to try out for a specific team. We will determine the most appropriate fit for you based on your in-person tryout and your pre-tryout questionnaire. You are welcome to let us know your preference in your questionnaire.
The questionnaire will be emailed to you once you register for tryouts. Please take the questionnaire seriously and fill it out completely — your answers will help us understand where you are in your climbing journey so we can direct you appropriately.
All special requests should be sent to email@example.com.
