Junction Development Program

 

Our development program is focused towards youth who are interested in improving as climbers with the potential to enter the competitive stream or simply progress through the sport as passionate lifelong climbers. The program sessions are divided by both age and ability. ​The ages follow the same structure as the competitive youth age categories which are broken down into 2 year increments (based on birth year).

 

These age categories are as follows:

  • F = born in 2013 or 2014

  • E = born in 2011 or 2012

  • D = born in 2009 or 2010

  • C = born in 2007 or 2008

  • B = born in 2005 or 2006

  • A = born in 2003 or 2004


Skill Levels:
This program is designed to have skill-based levels per age category and placement will be determined by our staff. Any child new to our youth programming must start at level 1. Our instructors reserve the right to move your child into a higher or lower level based on their climbing development and/or if they believe your child would perform better in a different level. Since this may involve switching class days, you will be contacted before any changes are made.

 

Cancellation Policy:

Cancellations up to two weeks in advance are eligible to receive their deposit back. Registration for programs is limited to the specific day chosen. It is your responsibility to attend your selected program and alternate make-up days will not be provided.

Not sure which program or level is right for your child? Email us and we'll help you out.

Registration for session 3 is now available until January 31st.
