Teams & Club

The Spot Climbing Team is one of the premier youth climbing teams in the country. Team members are given opportunities throughout the season to compete at local, regional, divisional and national levels. The team trains at The Spot and other local gyms, as well as nearby outside areas. In addition to regular outdoor days, the Spot team also takes seasonal trips to popular bouldering areas like Joe’s Valley, Utah (see bottom of page for details).

The Spot’s coaching team has decades of experience coaching, guiding, establishing new boulders, and climbing indoors and out at areas across the world. Several members of the coaching team are past or current competitors who have represented Team USA at international climbing events in Europe, Canada, the US, and Asia. Spot coaches love working with climbers of all levels to help them push their limits and achieve their goals. Learn more about our coaching staff here.
