Cities/Peoria/Programs/Kids Programs/Kids Climbing Classes

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

  • Our fun, skill-based curriculum keeps kids of all ability levels engaged and making progress
  • 8-week sessions (paid in two monthly, auto-billed installments on the 1st of each month)
  • Student/teacher ratio:
    • Ages 4-10: 4 to 1 ratio
    • Ages 11 & up: 6 to 1 ratio

Most newer climbers will begin in the standard age group/curriculum. Students with significant climbing experience will be evaluated by a Lead Rec Instructor or Youth Coordinator and placed appropriately.

At the end of each session (week 7 or 8), a progress report will be issued to the child and parent, and at that time it may be recommended that he/she move to an advanced class.

Our next session (late fall) starts Oct. 31st

AGES 4-5: SPIDER MONKEYS

Spider Monkeys (ages 4-5) learn climbing without knowing they’re learning. Through a multitude of climbing and movement games, we build body awareness, balance, and confidence – all while having an absolute blast.

AGES 5-6: SCRAMBLERS

Scramblers (ages 5-6) engage in many forms of climbing in pursuit of their first “summit” of our rock walls while learning basic safety skills, footwork, and movement skills. Through student-centered games, we encourage each student to attempt climbs on terrain they might not otherwise try, and we strive to make their time on the wall instructive, satisfying, and a whole lot of fun.

AGES 7-10: ROCK WARRIORS

Rock Warriors (ages 7-10) engage in all styles of climbing to refine core movement skills, master intermediate footwork and begin to develop a fundamental understanding of the interaction between body position, gravity, and rock. We incorporate unique movement specific exercises to develop motor memory and an intuitive feeling for how to attack any combination of rock holds and positions. Pricing for 8 wk session: Members $149, Non-Members $199

Current Rock Warriors Schedule: 

Wed: 6-7pm | Fri: 4:40-5:30pm

AGES 11-16: STONE MASTERS

Stone Masters (ages 11-13) continue building their climbing skill set by exploring more complex “specialty” moves, sequencing skills, advanced rope work, and strength training for climbing. Some Stone Masters may work toward our Team Prep series (or even a direct try-out for the competitive team). Several levels of Advanced Curriculum are available for returning Stone Masters, and will be applied individually, at the instructors discretion. Pricing for 8 wk session: Members $199, Non-Members $249

Current Stone Masters Schedule: 

Mon 6-7:30pm | Tues: 5-6:30pm
