Youth Club

The River Rock Youth Club, one of our most popular programs, is for youth climbers looking to explore the sport. Our coaching staff will emphasize the fundamentals of climbing and fitness in a fun and relaxed environment. Coached sessions focus on balance, movement, strength training, communication and mental strategy. This program offers a lot less commitment than our competitive team.

Prorated tuitions are available for a flexible or late start, and gym membership is not included in tuition. Youth non-members will receive a discounted day pass rate of $10 per visit for additional (non-staff supervised) climbing at the gym, which includes rental gear.

“I am currently in my second year of instructing the Youth Climbing Club and my third year of working at the River Rock. Over the past eight years I have worked in a variety of youth programs including summer camps and after school.  I enjoy having the opportunity to teach others about climbing and …

…sharing my experiences to help them become better climbers themselves. I could keep going on about my credentials and all of my accomplishments but I think I’d rather share two important facts about myself. I think that if you’re not having fun then you’re doing it wrong and that I think tacos are the greatest idea in the history of food.”
