Team Escalade - Our Youth Climbing Team

Rock climbing is a sport that perfectly embodies the relationship between the mind and body. Climbers are continually met with the challenge of blending physical strength with mental prowess in hopes of performing at a maximum level. Team Escalade persistently taps into that challenge by involving climbers in exercises and lessons that not only improve physical strength, but that also highlight the benefits of focus, awareness, and mental fortitude. 

While Team Escalade’s training programs and curriculums are built off the mind-body relationship, our National caliber coaching staff works hard to meet the training needs of each climber regardless of age or skill level. This approach to climbing and training has proven fruitful as Team Escalade continually sends climbers to the National competitive level and has climbers on the U.S. National Team. 

It’s important to add that Team Escalade isn’t solely interested in producing top tier rock climbers. Taking precedence over the performance of its athletes is Team Escalade’s dedication to providing an environment where team members feel safe and free to be themselves and are continually supported by their peers and coaching staff. Team Escalade’s coaching staff strives to provide a space where a sense of purpose, confidence, personal growth, and self-esteem all flourish. Through this holistic approach to coaching and climbing Team Escalade’s coaching staff works hard to help young climbers develop into confident individuals who fully believe themselves.  

Escalade offers both introductory climbing classes for kids as well as a Professionally Coached Climbing Team. The youth program is designed to work even the most aspiring and energetic climbers, offering a serious, healthy physical and mental workout. Climbers will work on strength training, improving coordination and flexibility, as well as problem solving and independent thinking.



The Team Escalade is for climbers between the ages of 7 and 17. Our climbers make friendships in a setting that develops character and strength that will last a lifetime. Team Escalade climbers experience adventure and self exploration found in no other sport.

Our Mission: To teach sportsmanship, humanity, discipline, and respect for self and others. Through climbing, our youth will learn life skills that allow them to not only become strong climbers but will enable them to become self-directed in everything they pursue.

Team Escalade practices consist of instruction in safety, climbing technique, stretching and conditioning, according to a structured and progressive curriculum. Team members are supervised and guided by our experienced and knowledgeable coaching staff. The competitive Team Escalades participate in bouldering, climbing, and speed competitions, as well as outdoor climbing events year-round. The recreational climbing club maintains a more relaxed and social atmosphere, in which the exercises are presented as climbing games.
