  • How can my child join team?

    Team is for youth ages 6-18. We ask that your child have the desire, passion and dedication to train for and excel at climbing. All candidates are asked to fill out a climbing team application. Once a space becomes available, our Head Coach will contact you to set up a tryout.

    We may have a long waitlist of climbers looking to get onto the team, so here are a few things that you should know to help get you on the waitlist and decide if team is right for your climber:

    • Our team typically runs at capacity so our waitlist can move slowly
    • On average we open 5-10 spots a year per gym
    • We ask that climbers who are looking to join team are able to climb at least 5.10a/b (without weighting the rope)
  • Is membership included?

    Yes! Membership is included as a benefit for kids who take part in team.

  • I am a member, do I get a discount?

    The cost of team covers the coaching and team practices, and a membership is included as a benefit. Team dues are not discounted further if your child is already a member, is part of a family membreship, or does not want a membership.

  • Can I freeze my team membership?

    Yes! Since the team meets year round, we understand that there will be times, either due to other sports or vacation, that you will want to place your team membership on hold. Team memberships are treated similarly to our regular monthly memberships; we can freeze or cancel your membership. Freezes must start on the 1st of the month, and cancels are effective on the last day of the month. Team accounts can be frozen for a maximum of 3 months. Please email us at sanfrancisco@planetgranite.com to freeze your membership.

  • What is the parent's role in team?

    Every participant and coach is choosing to be part of a team with a common mission to develop high-performing climbing athletes in a way that emphasizes fun, fosters a love of the sport, and supports each team member’s personal development and growth. The Code of Conduct spells out the manner in which we’ll achieve the team’s mission and lays out expectations for both coaches and team members. If at any time a parent, coach, or team member has a concern about the well-being of a team member, we encourage them to reach out to the Youth Protection Committee.
