We believe climbing should be accessible to everyone.
Out of that commitment, we have pioneered the growth of adaptive climbing in the DC metro area through partnerships with some truly extraordinary organizations.
Through our work with the PFNCA, we spearheaded the first accredited U.S. study on the effects of climbing on Parkinson’s disease. We are also the only climbing gym in the country that offers a free, weekly program for climbers with Parkinson’s. What started in 2012 continues to grow larger each year and we are proud to bring this work to medical professionals and media outlets so additional progress can be made!
Catalyst Sports is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing the highest level of adaptive sports opportunities for youth and adults with physical disabilities. In 2015, Sportrock earned the distinction of being the only host gym in the Mid-Atlantic region for Catalyst Sports.
As a result, they were able to launch a Greater DC Chapter and we have proudly hosted monthly climbing clinics at both our locations ever since.
