Bouldering is an incredible sport for kids! It builds confidence and tremendous strength all the way to the core of the body. As many of you know, my older son Rhys (age 9) is on The Circuit’s competitive climbing team “The Circuit Breakers.” To learn more about The Circuit, read my original post here.
Last year, the competitive team had six members qualify for the American Bouldering Series (ABS) National Championship in Colorado Springs, Colorado! One team member received a 4th place finish, and another member was the National Champion!!! The Circuit has one of the top teams in the country. Here is a video of the highlights from Nationals.
How did the Circuit team get so good? I feel it’s mainly due to excellent coaching and committed parents and climbers. Another reason is early exposure to climbing via low-stakes (HIGH FUN) climbing clubs and camps at The Circuit. These happen throughout the year, but I wanted to draw your attention to The Circuit’s upcoming “Fall Kids Club.”
There are several options for enrollment. Either click the flyer picture above or click here for more information. The clubs are a great way to see if bouldering is a good fit for you child. Perhaps, they are already climbing the walls at home anyway!
Here is a short clip of my kids climbing at The Circuit:
