The awesome part of the SYCC is it benefits both first-time and experienced climbers. Climbing is a sport that unites climbers of all ability levels, and that's the culture we strive to create. No worries if you don't have any gear. We've got rental gear you can use.

3. What will we learn?

Technique, training, and the mental side of climbing are the main subjects when it comes to climbing knowledge. We'll explore a range of topics within each of these. Check out some examples for each below!

Technique: Footwork, Flagging, and Drop-Knees

Training: Strength, Power, Power-Endurance

Mental: Route Reading, S.M.A.R.T. Goals, and Fear of Falling

4. What is the long-term goal of the SYCC?

Some climbing gyms around the country host season high school climbing leagues. These leagues feature clubs/teams from local high schools who practice at the climbing gym for club meetings and compete in seasonal competitions. Our hope is that the SYCC would grow to includes clubs of students from different schools who join together every week to learn, practice, and compete in friendly competitions.
