Pre-Nationals Training Camp Is This June! 

We’re excited to bring you something new and different this time; in addition to daily mock competitions, we will also be discussing mental tools and stress management techniques on a daily basis in the form of small, coach-led discussion groups.

We understand that all athletes struggle to find routesetting at their local gyms that prepares them for the demands they will face at the National Championships. That is why our Coaches and Setters have teamed up this year to deliver the types of movement exclusively, holds, and styles that you ONLY find in competitions.

Camp Includes:

-Onsight Format Mock-Competition Every Day! (Qualifiers and Finals)

-Lead & Top-Rope Training on the 2019 Lead & Top-Rope National Championship Walls

-Speed Climbing Workshops from Some Of The Fastest Athletes In The Sport

-Sports Psychology, Stress Management, and Route-Reading Techniques from Top-Level Coaches and Competitors
