Summer Youth Teams

Event Date: Summer 2019

Location(s): Chinook , Rocky Mountain , Hanger , Stronghold , Outdoor

We are very excited to offer some Summer Team Training options.  This program is for any athlete that was on one of our regular youth teams throughout the season (or an equivalent training program).

Summer Team with CCC focuses on making off-season gains, getting ready for the fall competitions and supports the transition to the outdoors. You’ll have the option to add on outdoor days*, where experienced coaches help you develop confidence and skill on real rock. Get psyched and keep things fresh by tackling projects outside on the weekends!

During the week, you’ll be training alongside motivated athletes and cycle through group skill, conditioning and tactical drills to improve all facets of your climbing. Athletes can expect to receive strength and weakness assessments and individualized strength training plans catered to their specific needs. Bi-weekly competition simulations will keep your mental game fresh over the summer and give you a chance to improve your competition strategy in a fun and supportive environment.

Whether your goal is to get a head start on the comp season, focus on strength gains, or chase outdoor projects, we’ve got your back.  Come train with us and take your climbing higher.

Outdoor Days.

The Goal of the Outdoor Days is to get success on real rock!  We want our athletes to feel comfortable climbing on real rock and discover the wonderful feeling it is to get to the top of your route project!  We believe in having our athletes discover the love of climbing and the outdoors and take their indoor skills outside. Join us on Saturdays where our coaches will help you navigate climbing hard on real rock, break down the crux sequences and help you systematically achieve success! Whether it’s your first 12a, 13a or 14a. Let our coaches help you get there!

 

How it’s going to work.

We’ll pick some cool crags where the team/group can climb.  We’ll meet you out there and hike in together. The coaches will help set up / select some good short term and long term objectives to climb. Then we get to work! All while having fun and supporting each other.

Climbing helmets are mandatory for all athletes and coaches when at the crags.

Other equipment: like quickdraws, ropes and anchor material, should be supplied by participants. A small selection will be made available by the CCC (our end goal is to encourage self-sufficiency when climbing outdoors.
