Recreational Team


Rec Team is a great class for kids and teens of all skill levels. Whether they’ve been climbing for years or have never seen a climbing wall in their life there is a place for them on one of our Rec Teams. It is non-competitive climbing team for kids interested in improving their climbing in a fun pressure-free environment. Coaches will focus on enhancing climbing skills beyond that of Kids Club. Kids will focus on technique, strength building, teamwork and problem solving, through the use of games, team building and trust exercises.  They will also learn valuable life skills such as trust, concentration and communication. Rec Team may also serve as a bridge for any kid who wants to enter the world of competitive climbing.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: I’ve signed up my child, now what do I do?

A: You are all set! Just show up a few minutes early for the first session to make sure that your child’s paperwork/ payment and waiver is up to date. Our front desk staff can help your child get fitted into climbing shoes and a harness. From there, our youth coaches will meet with your child and introduce them into the program!  

Q: Do I need to purchase climbing gear for my child?

A: No! Crux provides all climbing gear for free as a part of their youth team membership. If your child wants to get their own gear, we do sell gear in our shop, but it is never mandatory for a child to have their own climbing gear.

Q: Can my child attend other sessions, or do I need to stick with the session I signed up for?

A: Your child will need to stick with the specific session that they signed up for.

Q: Can my child come climb outside of the scheduled practice times?

A: Yes! Any youth programs membership grants your child full access to either of our gyms (south or central location). Your child would be welcome to climb at the gym during our regular business hours if they are under adult supervision.

Q: Are practices mandatory?

A: Practices are always optional. We encourage kids to come to as many sessions as possible, but we understand if they need to miss sessions on occasion.

Q: My child has never climbed before, is this a good program for a beginner climber?

A: Yes! This program is designed for climbers of any skill level. Our coaches will work with your child to help them progress based upon their current skill level.
