As rock climbing becomes one of the fastest growing sports in the world, Team Aiguille is designed to not only compete on all levels of climbing, but also to promote respect for other competitors and boost your child’s self-confidence. Team Aiguille is suitable for young climbers who are just being introduced to the sport, as well as the competitively driven climber.
While rock climbing is fun and exciting, Team Aiguille works hard to increase strength, perfect technique and build character through different drills and regimens.
If you are interested in joining Team Aiguille you are allowed to join up to two team practices, with the purchase of a day pass and rental, to try it out. Your first practice must be during one of the non-competition Saturday morning practices so the coaching staff is able to give you and your child deserved attention and introduce you to the practice format.
Team Aiguille bases their schedule on two different climbing seasons: Fall is the season for Bouldering which features only bouldering (climbing short routes without a rope). Spring is our Sport Climbing season which includes top-rope and lead climbing. The levels of competition occur in the following order: Local, Regional, Divisional, National and World.
