TEAM LEVELS

The Sportrock Youth Team Pipeline consists of four steps; step one consists of our Recreational Team and Breakfast Club, step two is our Advanced Team, step three is our Competitive Team, and step four is our Professional Development Team. The Pipeline is structured to develop skills at each step that prepare climbers to move from one to the next.
