Vertical Hold is proud to showcase our Youth Team! Team Vertical Hold caters to students of all ability levels and is split into two distinct groups. The Recreational Squad is the portion of the team that is oriented towards beginner and intermediate climbers. Members of the Recreational Squad will learn how to rock climb in a safe, fun, and supportive environment while gaining a sense of community. Recreational level climbers are given special training to increase their physical health, flexibility, and overall coordination. The second half of the Team is the Competition Squad. This group is focused on preparing for local, regional, and national climbing competitions. Competing athletes engage in strength, power, and endurance training in a structured, energetic, and supportive team environment designed to build camaraderie and lasting friendships. Regardless of the path these young climbers take, they are guaranteed to advance their problem solving skills while developing the confidence and interpersonal skills needed for them to be successful for the rest of their lives.
