*There will be a single awards time, even with three sessions, because the sessions are part of the same competition. We are running three sessions to accommodate more competitors and to make scheduling easier for families with youth in multiple categories or those traveling from further in our region. We appreciate your understanding and hope you can either stay for awards or have a friend/teammate pick up ribbons. 

Only competitors, volunteers and staff will be allowed on the padded sections of the floor during the competition. All spectators will be asked to remain on the concrete walkways or in designated spectating areas within the gym.

We will be asking anyone in the gym to have a full waiver on file Saturday. Please make sure to  fill out a waiver before coming to the competition. 

For the athlete that’s new to competition climbing, a $20 Introductory Membership will allow you to compete in a USA Climbing sanctioned local competition and be placed amongst the other competitors in your category at the event. 

All competitors that do not register for an annual competitor membership prior to attending a competition will have to buy the $20 Introductory Membership to participate. The fees paid for this Introductory Membership will not be applied or credited toward any other type of USAC membership. An Introductory Membership is valid for the entire season instead of just one event.

If a Youth or Collegiate competitor wishes to be eligible to compete in Regionals, he/she will need to purchase the respective USA Climbing Membership prior to the close of Regional registration in order for the locals he/she competed in with an Introductory Membership to count toward the competitors Regional eligibility.

Introductory Memberships can be purchased by going to USA Climbing's website, clicking the "Join Now" button in the top right corner, creating an account (if you do not already have one) and selecting the $20 Introductory Membership.

 We ask that you complete USA Climbing's requirements and pay their day fee before arriving at the gym for the competition.
