Our youth team is one of the most important programs that we offer. Competition climbing has exploded in popularity throughout the past five years, especially after it officially became an olympic sport in 2019! We are extremely proud of the way that we introduce young athletes to this sport, and teach them how to be standout people while becoming outstanding athletes.
Our team meets to train together three days per week under the guidance of our head coach, Fallon Rowe. Fallon has been climbing since 2003, and coaching and routesetting since 2014. She competed for over a decade as a youth and collegiate climber, and now primarily enjoys sport and trad climbing outside. As an earth science teacher and climbing coach, she loves to help kids explore their passions and learn about the world around them. Fallon is thrilled to be working at Contact and strives to build a strong youth team and community!
Being part of a youth climbing team is a life changing experience. This is a unique, and life-long sport, activity, and lifestyle that goes well beyond winning or losing. There’s no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to climb, and every individual brings their own set of strengths, style, and skill application to the wall. Climbing is about the balance between our mind and our body, but also has an incredible community element that sets it apart from other sports. At Contact, you will learn how to be a safe climber, work hard(er), make and chase down goals, gain more physical strength, gain and maintain confidence, and be an outstanding teammate. Each practice will run for two hours, and will involve some fun, some try hard, and some sort of targeted focus.
