Climbing Clubs

Team Touchstone

This is a program for climbers who are excited about improving their climbing skills through structured practice but who may not be interested in competitions. This is the next step for kids who have participated in a Climbing Camp.

The main focus of this club is to help climbers develop a love for the sport while addressing the basics of climbing technique, introducing group dynamics, and helping them become well-rounded climbers. This program provides a great opportunity to train with other young climbers in a relaxed, social environment while preparing them for a more rigorous training experience should they advance to Team Touchstone.

Climbers from this program may eventually want to compete in competitions. If the requisite technical proficiency and level of commitment are demonstrated during club practices they may be invited to join Team Touchstone.

Climbing Club members must have participated in a Climbing Camp session or have experience with belaying / some experience climbing.
