II. Youth Foundation Program

The Ground Up Youth Climbing Programme Climbing;

the only sport where competitors cheer for each other!

Our training is holistic: We train in all three disciplines - bouldering, lead and speed - because these three disciplines create synergistic benefits to the young athlete. A specialization only takes place from Youth B.

We place a high value on safety, but we also believe that climbing youthsters should not miss out on having fun. We provide a pleasant, pressure-free environment because we believe that joy and a sense of freedom are key components of creative training! 

Our thoughts are based on what Dr Jennifer Gaudiani says in the remarkable @ Light. Documentary film, “ A mammal that is malnourished isn’t going to be playful, is not going to be creative and is not going to be adventurous. They are going to get really rigid, rule bound & serious!”

Team Ground Up is a rock climbing team designed specifically for the youth climber. Practices consist of specific wall exercises, off-the-wall exercises, flexibility enhancement & skill acquisition in climbing.

“Developing movement skill and coordination in young athletes requires that they are exposed to years of varied and diverse movements that are both challenging and engaging. It is my firm belief that we should aim to develop good moves and let the kids decide what they want to do with that skill!

-Udo Neumann

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.


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?
