Coaching Programs for Kids


This is where their climbing development begins!
At Activate by Hardrock we want to see your kids enjoy and develop within the sport of climbing. We offer a variety of different climbing development programs including our awesome after school and school holiday drop-off programs.

Our team of experienced instructors and climbing coaches will support and encourage them to become a more confident and competent climber in a fun and progressive session structure. When they are ready we will introduce them to the Hardrock youth climbing squads so they can learn the ropes!

Age 9 – 12

Focussed on Development

Our aged 9-13 program is focussed on teaching different climbing techniques and developing young climbers to use effective body positioning and movements so that they will be more effective climbers as their bodies continue to develop. As they continue to develop throughout the program they transition from FUNdamental teaching methods to development teaching methods.
