On March 23, 2013, The Studio Climbing is hosting a USAC Northern California division Sport Climbing Series comp. This comp provides a great opportunity for young climbers in the South Bay to begin climbing competitions.
USA Climbing is the national governing body for competition climbing in the United States and is responsible for sanctioning the American Bouldering Series (ABS), the Sport Climbing Series (SCS) and the Collegiate Climbing Series (CCS).
“I’m really excited to be hosting a USAC local climbing competition at The Studio in San Jose,” said manager Diane Ortega. “We’re very supportive of rock climbing with kids in San Jose, and so hosting a low-pressure competition is a no brainer.”
Our Youth Climbing Team at The Studio is a wonderful and supportive place to learn to climb, meet new friends, and challenge yourself.
The Studio comp marks the second of the six regional comps. The Regional Championships will be held in May at City Beach in Fremont. Divisionals will take place in June at Vertical World in Seattle and Nationals happen in early July at Stone Summit in Atlanta.
$30 for USAC members ($35 for non-members)
Youth-B and above will need to get a Touchstone Lead Certification. You can get this done at any Touchstone Gym prior to the comp. You can do it at The Studio before the comp, but there might be a line. f you plan to Lead, please bring your own rope.
