Overview
The Edge is committed to providing a high-level instructional progression for young climbers. From exploring the sport in Geckos to competing nationally and internationally with our Competitive Team, we strive to provide programming for every child at every level of development.
Philosophy
Our philosophy has remained constant throughout the 24 year history of our facility. We believe that physical pursuits provide a great atmosphere for young people to learn about life skills such as: discipline, dedication, dealing with success and failure, goal setting and self-discovery. We encourage each athlete to take responsibility for his/her learning and performance. All of our programs follow logical teaching progressions that allows for all athletes to improve at their own pace. Our programs are designed and delivered by a dedicated coaching staff including several past National Champions.

Climbing Club

Price: $225.75 + tax

The Edge is dedicated to providing opportunities to anyone and everyone to enjoy indoor climbing. With our new Climbing Club which tailors to athletes aged 12-19, we can say that we officially offer something for everyone! Climbing Club is the place for athletes who are not interested in a team-like training atmosphere, but still love climbing and have a desire to continue to pursue it as a leisurely hobby. A coach will always be on hand to provide technique lessons, suggestions and climbing knowledge, but this program does not have a strictly enforced curriculum. We know that teenagers are busy folk and so registration takes the form of a 8-punch card which offers athletes the flexibility of showing up to any 8 of the 10 available sessions. 

*Punch cards are only valid for the semester they are purchased for, and do not carry over into the next semester. 
 
*Please note that particpants are required to have previous belay knowledge. If participant do not know how to belay, please register for a regular Introduction to Indoor Climbing Class first.  Special arrangements can be made to each belay skills "in class" but please check with gym staff or coach so that we can make the arragements.
