"THE A-TEAM" : Our Youth Climbing Team
In July 2013, we were again awed and inspired by the disciplined performance of Zach at U.S.A. Climbing's Youth National Championship Competition. Congratulates go to both Zach and Coach Bates, as Zach earned a space on the U.S.A. Climbing Youth National Team! Zach is one of only 4 boys in his age category to have made the team. He represents the very finest in the pure joy of climbing. We are incredibly proud. And, congratulations also goes to the A-Team for fielding six young climbers at the U.S.A. Climbing National Championship Competition in bouldering in January 2013. Go A-Team!
The A-Team is for climbers between the ages of 7 and 17. The A-Team mission is to teach sportsmanship, humanity, respect for self and others, and discipline. Through climbing, our kids become self-directed in everything they pursue.Click here to schedule your first lesson.

The A-Team's Top Climbers in 2011 were Zach Galla, Ryan Strickland, Mollie Cole, and Kiernan Reising. These four young climbers competed at the USA Climbing National Championship Competition. Zach earned a place on the US Youth National Team in both categories of Sport (Difficulty) and Speed. Congratulations!!
The Golden Toothbrush
The A-Team placed 2nd in the Nation in this year's TeamWorks volunteer service competition (sponsored by the the Access Fund and REI). And, Coach Brad and the entire Adrenaline Climbing community couldn't be prouder. "Winning the Toothbrush is not why we do it," says Coach Brad. Our kids are learning the intrinsic value of volunteering, of giving back to the environment which offers us the incredible gift of climbing. After every cleanup, the A-Team climbers can look behind themselves at the pristine forests and well-maintained trails to which they have contributed, and be proud. Go A-Team!!
