Our youth climbing teams are dedicated to providing a fun and safe environment for athletes to thrive and kindle a passion for climbing.

Climbing is a lifelong sport that offers opportunities unique to other options for physical and mental growth.

Our coaches are committed to inspiring development of confidence, strength, kindness, and body awareness in a fun and challenging environment.

The programs are developed for all abilities, goals, and backgrounds.

When our kids go to competitions, they’re supported not only by their home coaches but also by the kids and coaches from our other locations – it’s an experience of being an individual, part of a local team, and of something even bigger.

"The Pad Climbing Team feels like a huge family and we are so grateful to be a part of something special."
