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 which are divided in two categories: C/D and A/B/Junior. There aren’t strict performance requirements to try out, rather each child’s climbing ability is 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 and meet the coach should sign up. 

Tryout Schedule

All tryouts are from 5 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. 

August 5 – A/B/Junior, 10 spots (Ages: 13-19) 
August 6 – C/D, 8 spots (Age: 9-13) 
August 7 – A/B/Junior, 10 spots (Ages: 13-19)
August 8 – C/D, 8 spots (Age: 9-13) 

How Tryouts Work

During the tryout we will run the climbers through a bouldering competition simulation that consists of four problems.  

  • Climbers will have four minutes per problem, followed by a four-minute rest 
  • Each problem will test different skills to assess the climber’s aptitude in various terrain skill levels 
  • Climbers will be scored on a scale of 1-5  
  • After the climbs, we will conduct a short interview to gauge ambition and enthusiasm.
