Fall 2022 Youth Tryouts will take place August 20th from 9am-11:30am!

The Iron City Boulders Climbing Team is an opportunity for youth between the ages 9-19 to develop as climbers, competitors, and humans in a supportive environment while training mentally, physically, and technically in pursuit of their climbing goals.

Our mission is for youth to cultivate a love for the sport, community, and lifestyle of climbing through participation in youth competitive rock climbing.

The Youth Team is separated into three sections based on the climber’s desire, experience, skill, and personal goals. The intention of tryouts is for youth and coaches to decide which team experientially and collaboratively is the best fit for each individual.
