Chris Neve, Head Coach of Canada’s Youth National Climbing Team, will be at True North on Saturday, August 9th to lead two clinics aimed at helping competitive climbers. There will be a clinic for Youth climbers from noon to 3pm ($25 + HST), followed by an Adult clinic from 4:00-7:30 ($75 + HST).

All proceeds from these clinics will be used to help defray travel costs for the Team Canada athletes attending the World Youth Climbing Championships September 19-23 in Noumea, New Caledonia. Chris Neve is donating his time, and the gym is not keeping any of the fees.

Each clinic will focus on training for climbing, rather than just climbing itself. You will get some insight into how the coaches work with the national team, with focus on the 4 Pillars of Performance:

  • physical
  • technical
  • tactical
  • mental/emotional control

Each clinic will include discussion, a short slideshow, a warmup, some exercises and technical drills and a cool-down.

The same clinics will also be presented the next day, Sunday August 10th at Climber’s Rock in Burlington.

Please call the gym or pay at the front desk to sign up for these clinics. Spaces are limited.
