Climbing is arguably one of the only sports where gender does not matter. Men and women, though different, each have their own skills and strengths that make them adept climbers. Climbing with men and women is great, however finding a community of women can be an uplifting and irreplaceable experience.
Why You Should Join Rock Out’s Adult Bouldering League
Climbing is more than a physical activity, it builds a community. People of all ages, skill-sets, and backgrounds can come together to learn and grow from each other. That being said, Rock Out offers an Adult Bouldering League. Below is a list of why this league might just be the perfect fit for you.
A climbing gym can be an overwhelming experience. Ripped people climbing sixteen foot walls can be daunting to enter alone. Joining a league provides an easy way to connect with others in the gym, and find that those skilled climbers are not as intimidating as they may seem.
While climbing is an independent sport, sharing and learning from others is an enriching experience. This sport becomes infinitely better the more people you share it with. Furthermore, support and encouragement in the gym often translates to all aspects of life.
If you are a new climber, this whole world is a lot to learn on your own. All climbers know what it’s like to be new and inexperienced, so joining a league gives you a place to start with a community who understands what it’s like to be in your (climbing) shoes.
Joining a league ultimately breaks down the walls we create between each other. If you want to take climbing to the next level, we highly encourage you check out our six week long Adult Bouldering League! (Check out more information on how to get plugged in.)
Benefits of Joining the Youth Program
Climbing can be an exciting way for kids to expel energy and connect with each other. Climbing builds muscle and mental focus, both great things to teach from a young age. Listed below is why we think our Youth Program is beneficial for any kid aged 9 to 17.
Studies show that kids need a healthy form of physical activity. Climbing is a unique way for kids to be active and is an enjoyable exercise they will look forward to every week.
Since we have two groups (9-12 and 13-17), our Youth Program can help kids connect with others in their age group. This program is not through a school, so kids can befriend others they might never have encountered. Coming together with a common interest as awesome as climbing is sure to create supportive and fun friendships.
It can be a great alternative for kids who don’t prefer traditional team sports. Climbing is an individual sport, but our program allows like-minded kids to work together to reach their individual goals.
Learning this skill at a young age might spark an interest to last a lifetime since a passion for climbing is not hindered by age. On top of that, they can look up to adults for inspiration on where the sport can take them.
When push comes to shove, climbing is just plain fun! Who wouldn’t want to climb rocks with a group of friends? If interested, check out our events page to sign up!
