Rock Climbing is back! This season will be different from past seasons; changes had to be made to ensure safe climbing during COVID conditions. Important information below:

  • The SBA Climbing Team is open to all students in grades 6th-12th.

  • No experience required; all skill levels welcome!

  • Athletes on other SBA sports teams are welcome to join. We realize you may have conflicts, but if you have to miss a Meet, it does not impact our team score this year.

  • The season: late October- early February

  • You must attend at least 1 belay certification session prior to the start of the season. You must also pass a belay test.  (This is a lifetime certification; if you are already certified, you don’t need to re-test.) 

  • Meets:

    • 1 Meet per week.  

      • No Saturday meets

      • No make-up sessions

    • No “team” practices once the season begins. Students may practice any time on their own.

    • All meets will be at High Point Riverside or High Point Downtow

  • Fees

    • SBA fee $60, billed through FACTS. Fee includes:

      • T-shirt

      • End of season party/gift

      • Additional expenses

    • A discounted student High Point Membership during the season, required. Choose between 2 options:
      • $39 month: includes belay training, belay test, all Meets at both locations, and unlimited access to High Point Riverside


    • $52 month: includes everything above, plus unlimited access to High Point Riverside, HP Downtown, and HP Cleveland.

    • No joining fee,  and no termination fee at conclusion of season!

  • $3 rental fee if you need harness and shoes
