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.
Corona Virus Prevention:
-At this time, everyone must wear a mask while at Crux. This includes staff, participants and spectators.
-Our groups are running at a smaller capacity and will usually operate in a 6:1 participant to staff ratio.
-Our coaches will help spread the participants out and avoid contact/ grouping with other climbers.
-Our gym is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized regularly
Outdoor Climbing Trips
We offer outdoor day climbing trips exclusively to our Rec Team+ members with an additional charge to cover coaches. We try to keep the cost down as much as possible, but if this is a barrier for your kid participating, please let us know.
