The Grippers Climbing Team welcomes youth of all skill levels looking to challenge themselves in a competitive climbing format. This competitive sport engages students with physical and mental challenges through climbing and competition with opportunities for improvement, leadership, and teamwork. Coaches support each individual in their unique development as a climber, while fostering a safe and supportive team environment. Team members will participate in a number of local bouldering and sport climbing competitions with the opportunity to progress to regional and national competitions.
Tryouts are open to all motivated climbers who are committed to improving their climbing. A good attitude and willingness to work hard are more important than current climbing ability.
Competitions occur on Saturdays and will be chosen by the head coach.
Fees cover coaching during practice and at local competitions, along with coaching at the Regional, Divisional and National Bouldering Championships.
Many schools award PE credits for Team participation—please speak with your PE Department and the IRG to coordinate.
