Kid's Courses - Ages: 6-8

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 26 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.

GETTING STARTED - Ages 6-8.

We believe that the first experiences in any sport should be about fun and exploration. We want our youngest climbers to fall in love with the movement, sense of adventure and environment that climbing provides. It is this initial passion that endures as athletes become more serious and start to train in later years. 

Our Geckos program for 6-8 year olds is designed to allow natural curiosity and exploration to flourish.

Geckos

Price: $140.00 + tax (includes equipment, climbing passes and coaching fees)
