As many will know, climbing is now an Olympic sport, being included with medals for the first time in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. 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), so that athletes can gain national ranking, with potential to advance to the US Climbing Team, and potentially to Olympic events.

Competing with the Climbing Team:
The most dedicated competitors get coaching up to four times per week. All Competition Team members must prepare 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 coaching several Regional and Divisional Champions, and one three-time National Champion.
