My son is enrolled in a climbing program which will end in about one month. That said, we are looking for other options to sign him up for another program in the Denver/Boulder metro areas. Please let me know if there are programs that you are aware of.

Thank you!

Can't speak to anything outside of Boulder but every gym in town (the spot, BRC and Movement) all have teams. The ABC training facility is also in town.

I have my own opinions but can honestly say that all have great folks on staff and offer great climbing programs for any level kiddo.

A definite level below the gym teams and programs, but worth remembering, is that there is a statewide high school league too. Mostly kids with non climbing parents working their way into the sport on their own initiative. They also largely ignore the different teams they are on and pair up and encourage each other as individuals. It's fun to observe.
Plus, if you have a kid in high school that doesn't have an actual team they can still show up and compete anyway.
