Join the Squamish ‘Rock Stars’ Climbing Team

The GWBC is pleased to announce that the youth Squamish Rock Stars Climbing Team is re-starting in the new year..!

The Squamish Rock Stars Team is suitable for those keen to grow and improve as climbers and athletes. Sessions have a strong focus on technique, specific climbing movements and physical and mental skill development thus giving athletes a solid base to grow from. There is a strong focus on individual personal performance, rather than outcome.   

Specific training is done through the use of drills and games without impeding on the athletes ability to discover their own strengths, weaknesses and mental tenacities. Students will learn how to approach a climb with intention through mental and physical strategy. This will greatly benefit those pursuing competitions and performance climbing, as well as instil a deep sense of confidence.

To instil good sport practices for life, sessions includes warm up, physical and mental training, and cool downs to help with injury prevention. This program offers ‘structured freedom’ climbing, providing a fun environment balanced with a specific plan. We aim to keep the fun in sport, while sharing and capturing the essence and passion of climbing. All programming is based on the Sport Climbing for Life, Long Term Athlete Development Model.
