We sat down, looked at who was committed to the team for this fall's session, and made an interesting realization. Collectively as a team we have greatly improved in the past year, especially our younger members. A simple life lesson was brought back to light, "our age does not define how strong we can climb." (or do most anything for that matter)
With this rediscovery we are redefining the Junior and Senior teams to be only a division of age, not ability. This fall both teams will be doing the same workouts and given the same 75 minutes of practice time. Seeing as abilities across the board have come up to a similar level, I think it is best to have kids of similar ages practicing together. With that, I ask all team members born 1998 or later attend the Junior team practices and those born in 1997 or earlier attend the senior team practices.
If a climber has a conflicting schedule with their respected practice time talk to us and we can work something out. Any questions please don't hesitate ask.
