2022/2023 CCC Team Program – Information

The CCC strives to provide the very best training for our athletes and support them in their pursuit of excellence.   With over 25 years of Youth Team Programs we combine proven training methods with experienced coaching to help them achieve their goals.

We are looking forward to the next climbing season and would like you all to be aware of some of the changes we will be instituting into the program starting in September.

One major change will be the development of a non-competitive team stream for those who are still interested in training to become better climbers but who are not necessarily using competitions as their main motivation to reach those goals. We want everyone who is interested in climbing to have space within our program so this new direction will hopefully help climbers stay in the sport they love and with others who feel the same way.

NON-COMPETITIVE PROGRAM

Competition climbing is not for everyone. For this reason, we are offering teams that do not have competitions as their main focus. Climbers on these teams will still be guided by a coach, and still expected to put in their best efforts each training session, although the goal will be more around personal climbing projects rather than competitions. We want to encourage everyone to keep climbing in their lives in whatever way that works best for them because it is more than just competitions – it is a sport for life.
