Gemstone Rec Team  

The Rec Team is for climbers who have experienced climbing, love it, and want to get better with like minded/aged kids with the instruction of our coaches. Each individual will learn to climb with finesse, clean footwork, controlled movement, balance, coordination and confidence. Each climber will improve in their fluidity, strength, and flexibility.

There are 3 sessions per week for each age group. Each member will be required to attend a minimum of 1 x 1.5 hour session weekly but can attend up to 2 sessions/week (3 hours of climbing instruction). Every Monday, 30 minutes of yoga instruction will be included in the session.

For more questions please contact Oliver Gunther – Climbing Director via email or phone 208-329-7257.

Rec Team will be competing in quarterly in-house competitions.
