Middle TN – Elementary Climbing Leagues
The Middle TN Elementary climbing league, hosted at The Ascent, offers top-roped climbing competitions for climbers grades 1-3 and bouldering competitions for grades 4 and 5.
Competitive Climbing Leagues for elementary school are OPEN TO ALL CLIMBERS regardless of where you climb primarily.
Fri, January 18th – 5:30pm-7:30pm
Preview Night is a free event for 1st – 5th graders and their parents to experience our Recreational Climbing Leagues in an informative, hands-on, and obligation-free setting.
The night begins with an overview of the leagues, safety orientation, and an explanation of the rules in competitive rock climbing. Climbers then meet their new coaches and proceed to get a taste of what the leagues are all about! Meanwhile, parents are able to watch, learn, and participate in a Q&A session.

Our leagues are based around a 16-week season with 5 competitions (1 pre-season, 4 regular season) and weekly practices. Practices and competitions are currently scheduled on Saturdays in the spring.
Grades 1-3 will compete on the sport wall (tall wall with ropes) and grades 4-5 will be on the boulder.
Sport competitions will be a variant on the ‘redpoint’ style competition format. The boulder competitions will be ‘redpoint’ style. For more more details on competition format see Competition Format & Rules below.
We will kick off our elementary league with a FREE pre-season comp and preview night.
If you have competed before it is a great place to set a baseline for your season set some goals to work on and track your improvement. If you are new to competition, this is a great opportunity to try competitive climbing to see if this is something that you will like.
Practices run from 5:30-6:30 and begin on Mon, January 7th, or Tues. January 8th.
Select your practice time at registration.
Practices are included with (and require) a student membership and program pack.
