FAQ

Does the team participate in competitions?

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.

Do I have to be on the Advanced Team to participate in competitions?

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.

Do I need to have climbing experience to join the team?

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.

How do I try 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.

How do I know which team to try out for?

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.

Where can I get a tryouts 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.

I have a financial need, or another special request — can you accommodate me?

All special requests should be sent to team@elevationgym.com.
