We are happy to announce Tryouts for Team Session, our competitive climbing team! Thanks to Head Coach Jeremy Ho’s deep experience coaching athletes and route setting at the highest levels, Team Session athletes will be given the platform and training to strive toward the podium at the US Youth Nationals.

Team Session will practice Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 5-7p starting September 12th.

Register By:
August 23rd
Team Selection:
August 31st
Tryout Format:
3 boulder problems, 4 minutes per boulder, 4 minute rest
Season Structure:

Early season practice will be focused on preparing the athletes physically for the competition season. High volume- low intensity training slowly transitioning to low volume- high intensity training. Conditioning will be the priority in this early training phase, looking to develop the foundational skills necessary to physically perform at the highest level of climbing for each individual. Athletes will be run through climbing specific drills they need to become well rounded climbers and conditioning exercises to improve overall fitness.

One month prior to the first Qualifying Event the athletes will transition to competition strategy preparation. In this phase, team practice will continue with physical training but time will be allocated to focus on Championship event formats, strategy, and insight into the style of climbing presented at this level of competition.

As the Regional Championship nears, athletes will be run through mock competitions and training camps to prepare them for the stress and rigors of onsight climbing competitions. Athletes will be educated extensively on the specific rules outlined in the USA Climbing official rulebook and how to navigate the field of play.
