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, and meet the coach should sign up. 

Tryout Schedule

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.
