True North Climbing Team
Our Competitive Climbing Program is for the most dedicated kids who want to grow into strong climbers and seek to push themselves to reach their potential.
Team members train 2-3 times a week for 3 hours per practice. The members are selected through tryouts and an invitation by the head coach. This year, we have 26 kids ranging from E category (Age 7 – 9) to Juniors (18/19) on our Youth Competitive Team.
The team competes in the Ontario Climbing Federation Youth Series in both Bouldering and Difficulty disciplines. Season runs from October to May (See Season Schedule Here). Competitors earn series points based on their competition results in pursuit of the Ontario Cup in each age/gender category. There is also a National Championship held for each discipline, and Ontario’s top athletes earn the right to compete at those events.
Team Fee Breakdown
Each member is expected to provide their own equipment: harness, shoes, chalk bag, rope and belay device (if leading). Team members must maintain a membership throughout the season as well the monthly competitive team fee. The team fee covers training, coaching at competitions, and uniforms.
Code of Ethics
Because we feel strongly about fair play and proper behaviour by everyone who represents True North, we ask all competitors, parents of youth competitors, coaches and other officials to sign our Competition Code of Ethics.
