Our aim is to promote the sport of indoor rock climbing to the younger age groups, we strive to do this by teaching safe climbing practices, setting personal goals, learning technique, having loads of fun and meeting new friends!

Our coaches are experienced climbers and we are dedicated to the success of each child. The squad strives to build a sense of strength, fitness, team work and most of all friendship in each member. If you love to move and be active and enjoy challenges, then rock climbing is the place to start!

At Canberra Indoor Rock Climbing we have a Squad for children who are 9 years old and younger. We offer a safe, fun and exciting environment for younger children to experience the thrills and spills of rock climbing. This squad is specifically for the little ones who are too young to belay for themselves.

We provide several qualified coaches to make sure they learn the basic skills needed for safe climbing. All the rope skills are provided by the coaches. We also teach movement techniques so the children have a better understanding of how their bodies move up the wall.

Our aims of this squad is to promote health and fitness, body awareness, and for the kids who are dedicated - a chance to join our other squads and progress to the elite level.

The Gecko Squad is for beginner to intermediate climbers between 10 and 18 years old. Our aims are to teach correct technique, safe climbing practices, competition preparation and basic outdoor skills in the safety of the gym. This squad feeds into the Link Squad..

The Link Squad members are climbers that train with both the Geckos and the Rock Squad. Climbers in the Link squad have special timetables that include some training sessions with the Geckos and some with the Rock Squad. The Link squad is essential in the development of these climbers as it will ease them into the more intense training sessions of the Gecko Squad.

The Canberra Rock Squad is our elite level. This Squad is for climbers who have mastered all of the basic techniques and are climbing at a high standard. They are given the chance to refine techniques with one on one sessions and compete at a state, national, and international level. Climbers who show exceptional dedication can then be introduced to outdoor rock climbing under supervision of trained guides.

Please feel free to contact us to answer any of your questions, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
