Kid's Courses - Ages: 9-12

Have a child that is interested in climbing? Why not sign up for one of our kids programs. See information below for program dates and prices.

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 25 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 PROGRAMS - Ages 9-12

For the 2011/2012 season, we have redesign the climbing programs to make learning and the transitions between programs even easier.  Now there is only one program for you to register in to if your child is between the age of nine to twelve years old. 

Inside this program the instructors will automatically teach kids who have not yet learned how to belay and then progress them in to finer climbing technique on their own learning curve.
