Climbing Youth Programs

Asana After School Program (6-9)

This program covers abilities of all levels with excellent instructor to student ratios. It is perfect for kids (6-9) who know they love climbing and want to continue growing in it but may not want or be ready for the commitment level of climbing team programs. The main goals are to have fun, learn about climbing and develop skills to become a better climber. Our experienced staff will work with your child on developing skills such as technique, endurance, strength, teamwork, safety, responsibility, communication, trust and concentration, all taught in a noncompetitive atmosphere.

Students in the 6-9 class will boulder and rope climb. During the rope climbing portion of the class the students will learn climbing techniques, how to put on their harness correctly, and tie a rewoven figure-8 with a safety knot. While learning these skills, students will be under the direct supervision of a trained Asana instructor.

Asana Climbing Team is intended for dedicated youth climbers interested in improving their climbing skills and pursuing rock climbing as a competitive sport. 

Team members meet 2 times per week for practice which consists of climbing coupled with strength training exercises, skills and technique classes, and goal setting. Members are encouraged to come into the gym on their own to supplement techniques and rills learned during practice. 

Team members are required to compete in at least 2 climbing competitions per calendar year. Coaches will prepare team members for competition climbing both physically and mentally with dedicated practice implemented throughout the year. 

Our program mission is for our athletes to see that climbing can be a lifelong pursuit, enjoyed year-round, and one that will always remain challenging, rewarding and a means of self-enrichment.

Currently the Asana Climbing Team is FULL. If your climber is interested in joining, please contact Coach Shannon at shannon@asanaclimbing.com for information regarding team participation.

THE ASANA STORY

Asana began in Boise in 1999 as a manufacturing company producing “Everything Bouldering”. The company grew and became the market leader in custom padding systems for climbing gyms across the US. In 2013, the company evolved and incorporated the Asana Climbing Gym to truly provide all things bouldering. Now in 2016, the gym is expanding into a new facility!
