Team Ascension – Youth Competitive Climbing Team

Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
(invitation only)

Youth climber on Team Ascension in Fairbanks, Alaska

Coaches Emily Mengershausen and Lee Petersen train participants for competition in USA Climbing! Our team members focus on technique, endurance, and strength training. Developing self-discipline is a core component of being a team member. We help young climbers learn the skills to climb efficiently and safely to enjoy the sport of climbing for a lifetime! Be prepared to reach high and pull hard.

Team members must be available for all local competitions the team participates in and are expected to travel to regional competitions (usually in Oregon) in late fall/early winter.

Team Ascension is by invite only. If you would like more information please give us a call at (907)452-5462. Often the first step to becoming a team member is involvement in the Recreational Team or Youth Club. The Recreational Team learns many of the same skills and techniques as the competition team, but in a more casual environment. In this class, competition is encouraged but not required.

Ages 10 – 18
