Youth Programs

Our youth programs are put together by our Youth Program Director, Becca Ewart. Becca puts a lot into making sure your climber gets what they need through whichever program they are in.

Please email any questions you have to Becca@rockquest.com

***USA Climbing is adjusting the competition seasons to align better with the US Olympic Climbing format. This means the SLOPERS practice times and format of all climbing seasons (sport, speed, and bouldering) will be changing in January of 2020. We are doing our best to keep everyone up to date but we do not have any information on what the SLOPERS schedule or practice times will look like next January.
REC CLUB & INTERMEDIATE CLUB WILL NOT BE AFFECTED BY THIS CHANGE
Thank you for your understanding!***
