Our teams are a great way to introduce kids to the world of rock climbing and to help them develop into world-class athletes. Climbing is a beautiful sport that you can practice your entire life. Getting involved at a young age opens doors to a lifetime of wonderful experiences. We are looking for kids who are focused on developing strength, team skills, and learning the value of hard work. All skill levels are welcome.

We have Recreational Teams and Competitive Teams. Ages 10-18.

*There are no teams based at our Carlsbad location since the Oceanside location is nearby and has more to offer. There currently isn't a competition team at the Murrieta gym. 



The recreational team is focused on having fun, building technique, and getting exercise. The goal is to build excitement and motivation in the sport and to create a foundation for a lifetime of safe climbing. Practices are concentrated on having fun with climbing-specific games and movement.

For additional information, email one of our coaches  (Oceanside)  (Murrieta)




The competitive team is for youth who are committed to training in order to advance their skill level. Team members have the motivation to improve technically and physically and have a drive to compete at the highest level. Advanced climbing techniques and conditioning transform team members into world-class climbers. Consistent attendance and a willingness to climb outside of practice days are mandatory. Our team members participate in regional competitions and often advance to national events. 

Participation on the competitive team is by tryout and/or approval by head coach Adam Mashouri. Email for more information.

Practices are every Monday/Wednesday
or Tuesday/Thursday from 4:30 to 6:00pm.
