Those placing 7th or better, have received an invitation to the USA Climbing Youth National Championships.  The National Championships will be the weekend of March 3/4 at United Stated Olympic Training Facility in Colorado Springs, CO.  This is exceptionally exciting as Climbing is on the International Olympic Committee short list for inclusion in the 2020 Olympics.  Coordination between the USO and USAC is a positive step in making this a reality. In addition, many of the older Touchstone's Zero Gravity athletes will be competing at the Adult National Championships the weekend before, February 24/25 at the same venue.
