Starting the week of September 12th, our popular Youth Recreational and Competitive Programmes start back up. We are now taking bookings for these programmes.
The Youth Recreational Programmes are offered at Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels, with kids grouped roughly by age as well. These programmes get your kids climbing regularly, and develop their climbing and safety skills from week to week. Depending on each child’s readiness, they can learn how to belay on top-rope and potentially start lead climbing as well during the course of the programme. Beginner classes are 1.5 hours/week for 8 weeks, while the Intermediate and Advanced classes run for 2 hours/week for 10 weeks.
Our Youth Competitive Programme is for kids who are climbing hard and ready to make a bigger commitment to climbing. The focus is on training for competitions, and the programme runs 3 hours every Tuesday and Thursday evening (6 hours/week of training). Kids in this programme are expected to attend multiple comps during the season.
All of our Youth Programmes are eligible for the federal Child Fitness Tax Credit. You can find more details about each programme (including pricing, dates & times) at http://truenorthclimbing.com/climb-with-us/programmes/youth-programmes/, by picking up the orange flyer at the front desk, or by talking to our desk staff. We expect these programmes to grow from last year, and some will fill up, so booking early is advised.
