BLOCS Development Team

This team is a great opportunity for youth to focus on fundamental climbing movements and build the enjoyment of climbing. Athletes will gain exposure to what climbing is as a sport, be introduced to structured climbing training, and develop their technical and tactical climbing skills. In addition, this team is great for athletes looking to compete if they choose to do so in the future! Outside of ability, we welcome athletes who are enthusiastic about climbing, motivated to improve, and receptive to coaching.
