Rock Climbing For Kids 

Choose Your Weekend Class:

I. Beginner Class

Children are natural climbers. An early rock climbing education will give your child a headstart to his or her developmental growth and well being. In the GU Beginner class, lessons are conducted through the help of climbing games to help your child understand basic balance and movements on the wall. Your child will also understand the amount of safety involved in this seemingly high risk sport of climbing, through basic falling and spotting techniques in bouldering, and also basic knots and personal safety equipment used to ensure their safety in top rope climbing. Belaying is performed by the instructors to ensure the safety of your child. GU Beginner class is where all the fun begins for your child to start climbing!

What Your Child can Expect

A strong body and a strong mind, for sure! Through challenging boulder problems and top-rope climbing, both indoors and outdoors, your child will develop healthy bodies and sharp minds.

At Ground Up Climbing Academy, rock climbing classes for kids are differentiated into three categories: beginner, advanced and competitive. This ensures that what we teach is best customised to their abilities. Starting with proper balance and simple rock climbing techniques, your child will advance to learning more technical and challenging movements and climbing problems.  

Ground Up Climbing Academy’s rock climbing classes for kids are held in a fun, nurturing and conducive environment which encourages our children to keep trying and never give up. Our warm and approachable coaches will also track your child’s progress through a personal logbook and a debrief at the end of each lesson. With this progressive approach, your child learns rock climbing from the ground up.

However, rock climbing, or even just looking at the towering wall, can be scary for some of our young children. But at Ground Up Climbing Academy, we first seek to understand your child by learning his or her behaviour before tailoring specific programmes to help him or her overcome challenges, be it managing his or her fear of heights or working on his or her self-esteem.

Through a holistic and progressive approach, we help your child enjoy the challenges of rock climbing, both mentally and physically. Our coaches will refine his or her coordination and motor skills, boost his or her social interaction abilities through team games while simultaneously build his or her physical strength.

A Fun, Progressive and Holistic Approach

Rock climbing for kids is the fun way to go. Look no further, take them rock climbing! 

Rock climbing is something that young children naturally enjoy. Getting them involved in rock climbing as a regular activity, instead of leaving them with their electronic gadgets, can provide them with a wide range of developmental benefits – improve their focus and concentration, strengthen their bodies, refine their coordination and motor skills, advance their mental capabilities such as problem solving abilities and develop their characters through teaching them resilience and perseverance. 

What Our Clients Say About The Class

It’s the first time I see my 2 girls so passionate about a sport. My younger daughter, Lauren, has become much more confident in herself since she started climbing, and my older daughter, Christen, amazes us with the moves she makes. They love the coaches and look forward to climbing lessons every week. Esther

Parent of Kids Class

Ground Up Climbing Academy provides classes that matches the kids age and skill level. Ashton started rock climbing when he was 5 plus. He enjoys his classes so much that he is always looking forward to attending the classes on Saturdays. He tells me that his coaches looks after him well and are all very patient with him. The best part about the classes with ground up is that they Incorporate games during classes to engage the kids and keep them interested.

I must say that after doing rock climbing, Ashton has become more independent and disciplined.

When my son trains with Ground Up, I know that he is in good hands. Those good hands are of genuine, caring people who have the children’s total welfare at heart. The coaches go beyond the disciplined training program to also incorporate important life values and character building into their lessons.

Training is always filled with challenges and FUN. Great fun in a safe and respectful environment. What more could one ask for?
