Rock Climbing Clinic (Ages 7-12)
Our youth climbing clinic is a great first step for younger participants interested in learning about the sport of climbing in a fun, low-stress environment. In this program, the coaches will introduce our participants to the skills and concepts that climbers need to build a solid foundation for climbing growth. The youth clinic strives to open the door for youth climbers to become comfortable in the gym and make lasting friendships. The coaches will use a mix of climbing instruction and team-building games to facilitate each practice. In an inviting environment, clinic participants will learn climbing vocabulary, techniques, and body awareness. The program runs for 8 weeks and will be offered from 3:30PM-5:30PM, Saturdays, September 16th - November 11th.
PLEASE NOTE: There is no Rock Climbing on Saturday October 7th (holiday weekend).
Location: Central Rock Gym, 10 Adam Road, Stoneham
