Übergrippen’s Youth Climbing Teams and Clubs run throughout the year. If your child wishes to join either our competitive teams or our recreational/social clubs we require that they either complete our Crag Akademie or are already belay-certified and complete an evaluation of climbing technique with one of our coaches. Crag Akademie is a 6 week long intro to climbing course for kids and starts approximately every 3 weeks.
Once your child has completed Akademie, they may wish to continue climbing; we offer many options!!!
Elite Competitive Team (“Team Yeti”)
Preparatory Competition Team (“Team Sasquatch”)
*tryouts February and August
Club Marmot (Ages 6-8)
Club Chamois (Ages 9-11)
Club Ibex (Ages 11-14)
If your child is interested in these we recommend you discuss the options with your Akademie instructor or with one of our coaches. You may email our Director of Teams, Suzu Jeffery, with questions.
All guests under 18 years old must have a waiver completed and signed by their PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN. There are absolutely no substitutions allowed for the parent or legal guardian.
Children enrolled in programs at Übergrippen (including but not limited to Akademie, clubs, teams, camps, after school programs) will be climbing with other children. Children will often be climbing partners for each other. This means YOUR CHILD WILL BE BELAYED BY ANOTHER CHILD ENROLLED IN THE PROGRAM AND YOUR CHILD WILL BELAY OTHER CHILDREN. If you are not comfortable with this, please do not enroll your child in our group programs. We offer private guided climbing (fees apply) and can also instruct parent’s on these same belay skills (enroll in our adult Crag Experience class) so that you can supervise your child’s climbing experience directly.
