team whetstone: Building Better Climbers

We believe in our athlete’s ability to grow themselves as climbers. Our mission is to build confidence, inspire passion, and create a supportive team community. We want to involve Team Whetstone as part of the Whetstone family.

Team Whetstone welcomes climbers from age 9-19 who are divided into two categories: C/D and A/B/Junior. There aren’t strict performance requirements to try out, rather each child’s climbing ability and mentality are assessed relative to their peers. Those who have a positive attitude and can follow a training program will be favored. Kids and teens who have a passion for climbing, want to learn more about our team, or meet the coaching staff should sign up.

How Tryouts Work

Tryouts will consist of practicing with our team and going through our regularly scheduled workouts. For Team C/D, the climber should be able to climb at least V3, and for Team A/B/Jr., the climber should be able to climb at least V5.

Outside of ability, we welcome athletes who are enthusiastic about climbing, motivated to improve, great listeners, and receptive to coaching. Athletes will be required to practice at least twice a week; practicing three times a week is not required but recommended. Additionally, attending competitions will be encouraged but not a requirement to be a part of the team.
