Rock climbing is one of few sports that teach responsibility through risk management, self-esteem through achievement and strength, both physically and mentally. It is also an ambidextrous sport which aids in the development of a child’s muscular system.

What is Team Inner Peaks? It’s a great opportunity for children 7-17 years of age to learn how to rock climb in a controlled and structured environment. Participants are coached in small groups according to their abilities and progress at their own pace. Whatever level they achieve, rock climbing is a great way to increase strength, improve self-esteem, and meet others who love to climb as much as they do. We provide team members opportunities for competition, outdoor climbing at regional areas and other various activities and events such as Bring-a-Friend Night. We teach everything from basic risk management skills to advanced competition climbing techniques, as well as indoor lead climbing.

To join a team, we require that all team members be Inner Peaks members. Why? The skills your child will learn are to be taken seriously. To solidify these skill takes practice, practice, practice. We strongly encourage you to climb often. As memberships include equipment rental, your child can come and climb anytime to work on his/her skills and technique. Simply complete the Membership Application process and the team registration form indicating which session works best for you. New team members must be registered seven working days prior to the first day of each month.
