Team Ciba Mission
Our mission is to develop a local community of competitive climbers through a controlled environment and technical assistance, thus providing an enjoyable atmosphere to engage, grow and achieve personal goals through the sport of climbing.
This is our introductory level team for kids ages 5 to 12 years old. The Coqui (little frog) team is designed to prepare participants for the competition team through engaging in supervised fun activity as well as guiding them on becoming better climbers. This team will allow participants to explore freely and establish a base level of climbing strength. This is ideal for any new or young climber that would like to focus on becoming well-rounded with technique, terminology, strength and mental training that will be necessary in their continued climbing success. The training will consist of foot and hand technique, instruction in body position and basic approach to climbing, all while having fun and reaching a higher level of physical fitness. The goal of this team is to nurture sincere love and passion for the sport of climbing.
Head coach: Angel Mangual
Season: August – May (Fall is bouldering season & Spring is sport climbing season)
Practice times: Monday and Wednesday from 5:00PM to 6:30PM
Price: Monthly payment of $70. (If your child would also like to climb at the gym outside of practice times, a gym membership or day pass must be purchased.)
In the intermediate team, emphasis will be placed on the process of familiarizing participants with more advanced training and competitions preparation. The training will be more in depth and will include body weight exercises. It will focus on finger strength and core strength as these are the most vital component of a climber's body. Effective problem solving and route reading technique will be another aspect that we will be stressed to the climbers. This will help the climbers with some formats of competition climbing. Team members will gain greater technical skills and learn to set and obtain goals strategically.
