The Competitive Climbing Team is the most demanding youth program offered at the Alaska Rock Gym. The Comp Team is intended to prepare motivated athletes for success at the regional, divisional and national levels of competition. Comp Team members participate in a rigorous training program that focuses on competitive indoor bouldering, sport and speed climbing. Athletes must attend training three days per week, and participation in local and USA Climbing events is mandatory.
To be considered for this team, athletes must have experience competing at a USA Climbing Regional championship event, most likely as a Rec Team member. Athletes are expected to demonstrate exceptional sportsmanship and work ethic.
