Youth Climbing Courses (ages 6-18)

Coyote Rock Gym runs three Youth Climbing Course sessions a year through the fall, winter and spring, with a break for Christmas and again in the summer. No experience is necessary, and all levels are welcome.

Youth Climbing Course sessions include both one-on-one scheduled instructor time where each climber has an instructor all to themselves to help them progress on whichever climb or level they have chosen to work on; and group sessions, where climbers are split into groups of similar ability to work on a specific drill/technique/activity suitable for their ability. There is also a specific lesson/drill portion of each session, where Coyote Rock Gym coaches teach a set of specific techniques or run drills/exercises to practice them. Sessions all end with a final round of stretches. On weekends, sessions run a bit differently: we open the gym up early for the youth program (so we have the gym all to ourselves until noon) and combine two youth groups at once with a few extra instructors to help.

Our instructors have lots of experience working with kids of all ages. We have a whole crew  of strong climbers that help us carry out the lessons/drills and helping the kids one-on-one. The Youth Program coaching team is made up from the gym’s staff,  regular gym members, and older members from our youth competitive team. There’s a great mix of styles and experience for the kids to draw from.
