Synergy Climbing has a world-renowned coaching program, managed and coached by some of the world’s most experienced and successful climbing coaches. Our programs are headed up by Synergy founders Lisa Rands, a former world number one in competitive bouldering, and her husband, longtime coach and climber Wills Young.

We offer youth climbers an organized, but fun way to access a lifestyle sport that will engage them both mentally and physically for years to come. Participants will learn perseverance and resilience; improve their social skills, and receive the best climbing coaching possible!

Future Olympians!

With bouldering and sport climbing now Olympic sports (first included in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics), the opportunities for young competitive athletes is better than ever. Ultimately for those that have the interest and dedication, we focus our coaching toward competitions sanctioned by USA Climbing (the national governing body of competition climbing in the United States). Through USA Climbing, our athletes gain national ranking, with the potential to advance to the US Climbing Team and represent the USA at international events, or even the Olympics.

We are proud to be coaching two national champions and numerous Regional and Divisional Champions; one world champion. Climbing clubs are for those curious to try it out and our high instructor to student ratio will ensure all young climbers make fast progress!

Team members are expected to represent the gym at competitive events. See more info below.

Competing with the Climbing Team:

The most dedicated competitors get coaching two to four times per week. We prepare team members for USA Climbing Regional Championships in sport climbing and bouldering. We require a commitment from team members through the end of the season, following the schedule of USA Climbing, which is the governing body of sport climbing in the United States (sanctioned by the International Olympic Committee). Team members will prepare for competitions from local to national in which they receive a national ranking.

Those who excel can take their skills all the way to the national team and on to international competitions. Ultimately, USA Climbing ranking will determine the members of the United States Olympic climbing team. We are proud to be Team Regional Champions and to have helped our team members earn multiple Regional, Divisional and National Championship gold medals.
