The objective of Team Ascent is to grow and expand a love climbing. We want to develop lifelong climbers that are engaged in the community for as long as they desire to remain invested in the sport. On Team Ascent, we use competition as a tool to grow as climbers and as people, not as a measure of success.

The Ascent Studio Climbing Team is divided into two age groups that follow the categories delineated by USA Climbing, the national governing body over youth climbing competitions. Youth C and D, comprised of athletes born 2006 or later, makes up our younger team. Youth A, B, and Jr, comprised of athletes born 1999-2005, makes up our older team. Within each team, we have a Prep and a Competitive level, with differing practice and competition expectations for each.

Youth team dues do not include a gym membership. Gym membership is not required to participate on the team, but is strongly encouraged so that they can climb outside of the scheduled practice hours. Individual youths may purchase a membership at the student rate, either EFT monthly or Annual Prepaid. Or their membership may be included in a family membership. For team members, the EFT start-up fee is waived.


Competitions

Participation in climbing competitions is encouraged for all Team Ascent members, and expected of Competitive Team members. Competitions are an opportunity to visit new gyms and experience different styles of route setting.

If you decide to participate in climbing competitions there is generally a cost to participate in each comp, payable to the host gym. This cost is usually in the $35-$55 range, plus any travel costs. You may also wish to become an annual member of USA Climbing (the sponsoring organization for national level youth climbing).

All of the coaches at Ascent Studio have agreed to the policies of the SafeKids program at Ascent Studio. These policies are intended to increase awareness and prevention of abuse within our organization. Parents are welcome to see these policies.

We don't take sign-ups for the climbing team online. Please come by the gym during one of the regular practice times to be introduced to the coaches and discuss whether the team is appropriate for your child.
