IN THE MAKING
We're all about development
Aspire Climbing is a centre for learning and growth. For our customers, our staff and ourselves, we promise to see more, to do more, to be more.
It's no surprise that programs are a big part of our business. We are a place where first time experiences happen alongside competitive training with every level in-between. We offer climbing classes for all ability levels and age groups.
Pathways in Climbing
Climbing development at Aspire begins at age 4-5, depending on the individual. But a climber can start at any time. Climbing is a unique sport where 13 years can be of the same ability and skill level as a 30-year-old. Age is truly irrelevant and anyone can start climbing at any time.
School of Hard Rock
Named after the various climbing areas located within close proximity of Aspire Milton, The School of Hard Rock is our development level. Climbers are introduced to fundamental climbing skills in order to set the foundation for future rock stars. This program is offered in the fall, winter and spring.
Nemos (Ages 4-5)
Buffalos (Ages 6-8)
Rattlesnakes (Ages 9-10)
Kelsos (Ages 11+)
This is our advanced climbing program for climbers that demonstrate skills beyond the levels taught in the SOHR. This program is offered in the fall, winter and spring. Climbers must earn their spot in Vanguard through tryouts before each season. This advanced-level does not require climbers to compete at climbing competitions, however it's not uncommon for Vanguards to start thinking about getting started in competitive climbing.
For climbers showing serious potential for competitive climbing, Elite bridges the gap between Vanguards and our competitive climbing team. In addition to advanced climbing skills, training, and strength conditioning, Elite athletes are taught how to be a competitive climber with strategy and preparedness. This is a 9-month program that coincides with our Team program. Athletes must tryout to earn a spot on Elite.
This is for adults! Not all of our programs are for youth. Crave helps you reach your potential in climbing regardless of your starting point. Follow structured points of progression with our advanced climbing coaches to help you achieve your best.
