YOUTH CLASSES

Our Youth Classes are designed to teach smart climbing practices, proper equipment use, belay methods and movement techniques that will foster a life-long passion for the sport of climbing. Participants can enjoy individual success with the support of new friends. Classes begin with approximately 8 minutes of warm-up, followed by 12 minutes of skills development. 30 minutes of climb-time will include bouldering and/or 1-2 climbs on our 36' wall. Most class sessions finish with 5 to 10 minutes of fun time or a climbing related game.  Rentals are included during class sessions.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS

Drop Off/ Pick Up: Climbers may arrive approximately 5 minutes before the start of each day. Please arrange to pick up your climber on time after the end of each day. If someone other than yourself will be picking up your child, please notify the SourceClimbingCenter ahead of time.


Supervision: Climbers registered in classes are not supervised by our staff before or after their scheduled session. All youth under 14 must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18 outside of class session time.


Illness: Indoor climbing involves repeated contact with shared hand holds. For the protection of all climbers, a sick child with a sore throat, consistent cough, earache, vomiting, or fever of 100 or higher within the past 24 hours should not attend. If a child displays any of these symptoms or becomes ill while climbing, symptoms are noted, but not treated, and parents are notified to pick up the child.


Absences: In the event that your climber is unable to attend a scheduled session due to sickness or scheduling conflict, we ask that you report his/her absence to the SourceClimbingCenter (360) 694-9096 no later than the start time for the session the day they are absent. There will be no credit or refund made for absences nor any prorated fees for sessions not attended.


Save your space in the next class: Climbers can register up to 4 weeks in advance online. Current class enrollees can register for the same class time early! Register up to 6 weeks in advance at our front desk to secure your place in the next class series. Make sure to register for the next class BEFORE the start of your first class session, or the space will become available online.
