What is Rec Team?: Recreational climbing team is developed to introduce your child to the sport of rock climbing in a fun and relaxed, but structured environment!  Whether your child is looking to pursue climbing as a leisurely activity or as a competitive sport, this team will give them a solid foundation to build upon!

What do Rec Climbers Learn?: Our team focuses on learning a wide variety of skills required to become a proficient climber.  Each week, the team will focus on drills, workouts, and climbing-related activities and games.  

Team Benefits: Your child receives full membership to the gym with all member benefits and rental gear while enrolled in Team.  Your child will be eligible to get a 40% discount (+$5 shipping charge) on Scarpa shoe purchases.


Holiday Practice Policy: On certain Holidays and no school days; Roca may be closed, cancel practice, or have optional practices throughout the year.  Holidays that Roca is closed include; Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day.  Optional practice days include; Martin Luther King Jr. Day, President’s Day, MEA Days, Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, and Spring Break (check with your coach on the specific days, as they change from year to year).

Winter Weather Policy: When Rochester Public Schools cancel school and/or afterschool activities, Roca will also cancel our team practices.  Your child has a full membership to the facility, so our coaches, while they hate to miss a practice, encourage all team members to come to the gym and practice on their own (with a parent chaperone) that week as often as possible.  We don’t have any make-ups available due to our teams being full on other days.  If there is a pattern where an entire team is losing multiple practice days within a given month due to winter weather, Roca will host a make-up practice for that team.  Thank you for understanding!

Missed Practice Policy: If your climber misses a practice we do not have any make-ups times available due to our other teams being full.  As coaches we do not like seeing kids missing practices, so we encourage the climber to come in on their own time to make up for their lost practice time.  To aid with this, the coaches have put together some practice material that can be found on the climb team information wall in the facility.
