Team Touchstone is a youth climbing program dedicated to training the next generation of climbers. Our athletes develop the technique, strength, and confidence required for competitive climbing in a fun and rigorous team environment. From young climbers just getting their start in the sport to those ready to compete on a national level, Team Touchstone has something for kids of all ages looking to challenge themselves.
Team Touchstone athletes are ultimately encouraged to progress through the levels of our program and participate in climbing competitions. Climbers who demonstrate a high level of climbing ability and interest in competition may be invited to join our Competitive Team.
Want to join Team Touchstone? Here are a few things to consider:
- Our teams are based on ability level, not age.
- We’re a sports team. Regular attendance is required and our athletes are encouraged to purchase team shirts to wear during practice and competitions.
- Our program is for youth who want to grow as competitive climbers and be part of a tight-knit team. For those who are looking for a less structured social climbing experience, our kids camps may be a better fit; visit our Climbing Camps page for information and availability.
- Our teams run year-round. Registration can occur at any time throughout the year and does not reset annually or seasonally.
Currently the only level of our team program available at Diablo Rock Gym is the Recreational Team, but an interest in competitive climbing is supported and encouraged.
This is a great team for climbers who are just starting out, but know that they are super excited about improving at climbing! The main focus of this team is to help climbers develop a love for the sport, while addressing the basics of climbing techniques and becoming a well-rounded climber. This team provides a great opportunity to climb with other young climbers in a social, relaxed climbing environment.
