Welcome to the 2023-2034 Season!
Registration for Session 1 will open Monday, August 21st at 11am!
Spots are limited!
We will be running sessions of 10-week durations. Youth, with their parents, can decide which classes during the week work best for your child’s age group; each class is two hours in duration (excepting the 6 & 7-year-olds).
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 CRG 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 eleven).
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 of the gym’s staff, and older members from our youth competitive team. There’s a great mix of styles and experience for the kids to draw from.
If your child has not visited our gym before, please make sure to fill out an online waiver before completing the registration form. We cannot accept payment or complete the registration without a valid waiver form in our system. Visit the waiver tab and click the big red button labelled WAIVER.
Please note, once the session has started, we do not issue refunds for any reason. Special circumstances will allow for a credit to your account or transfer to the next session. You can withdraw from the course anytime up to one week before classes start and we will issue a full refund. Please make sure you are intending to attend youth program before completing registration with the links below.
