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 22 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. 

MOVEment

Price: $165 + GST

Age 6 - 12

At the Edge, we believe that the sky is the limit and that any obstacle can be overcome. We strongly support equal opportunities for all, and we want to make climbing a sport that anyone can enjoy! This is why we've started this new MOVEment class for kids with physical and cognitive delays who are aged 6-12.
 
We recognize the connection between motor skill development and readiness to acquire other skills. This program offers climbing games and basic climbing instruction tailored to the needs of each participant. We will provide the climbing expertise, and all you have to provide is your desire to learn, explore and have fun.
 
*Please note that all participants must be accompanied by a parent or aide at all times during the class. Our instructors are here to provide their climbing expertise, and are not fully equipped to be interacting with children with disabilities on their own.*
