Youth Team Open House, Part Two!

Adult Climbing Team

The Team for Adults is a structured training and climbing program for anyone 18 and over who wants to work on becoming a stronger, more confident climber. We encourage team members to take part in local competitions as a means to set goals and push themselves to achieve but competition is not the goal--improvement and conditioning is.

Training Program

The team will meet for practices on Sunday and Wednesday evenings from 7-10pm. Each practice will include climbing drills, technique instruction, cross training and strength conditioning. We'll follow a program designed to tackle each discipline and cover all aspects of practical training for climbers. By the end of the team year, you'll be stronger, have more power, better endurance and improved technique. 

Team Benefits

Being on the team will enhance your gym membership with the following perks:

Wholesale pricing on shoes
Discounted fees for all MetroRock competitions
Access to Team trips to climbing areas, including weekend trips to local crags and weeklong trips to the New River Gorge and Horsepens. 

About the Coaches

Our coaches come from a variety of competitive and outdoor climbing backgrounds. Head coach Jackie Pettitt is a lead personal trainer at MetroRock, coach of the youth team and competition climber. She has built successful training programs for climbers at all levels and ages. Assistant coaches Alex Hansen and Olivia Metcalf are experienced coaches in our youth programs and accomplished climbers in their own right. Alex is the head youth coach in Newburyport and Olivia has competed for the USA National climbing team as a member of our youth team.
