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!

    • Athletes on other SBA sports teams are welcome to join. If you have to miss a Meet, it does not impact our team score.
