Youth Rock Climbing Programs and Teams
The Bend Endurance Academy Climbing Programs strive to be at the forefront of climbing focused youth programming. Our programs are designed to inspire and fuel the next generation of climbers and focus on developing well-rounded climbers who respect the climbing community and the sport.
Our climbing coaches bring a wealth of sport-specific knowledge to the program combined with a professional and holistic approach to coaching and mentoring youth.
Bend Endurance Academy Climbing Teams help create a lifelong passion for the sport of rock climbing. Our programs give participants the chance to grow as climbers’ and as a team while learning proper climbing etiquette, technique, safety, risk management, and goal setting.
Our Coaching Philosophy
We are committed to providing a safe and encouraging place for individuals to grow as athletes. We value hard work, commitment to the team, respect for the sport and a willingness to continually strive for improvement. Our coaches work hard to be the coach that each individual needs on any given day and support our athletes in all aspects of their development.
Our indoor climbing programs operate in partnership with the Bend Rock Gym, which serves as one of our training and practice locations. Bend Endurance Academy Climbing programs also offer the unique opportunity of having our own youth dedicated training center at BEA Headquarters.
With the plentiful crags and boulders in the Central Oregon area, we also offer the option of outdoor climbing trips to the world-class Smith Rock State Park and other local crags.
If you don’t see a climbing program that fits your child’s ability or age, we encourage you to look into the great youth programs from our partners at Bend Rock Gym
