USAC Bouldering Youth Regionals December 8, 2018


For the second year in a row, ASCEND is psyched to host another USA Climbing: Bouldering Youth Regional Championships - set for Saturday, December 8, 2018! In addition to competitors we'll LOTS of need volunteers, so take a look below if you think you've got what it takes! We'll continue to add to this event post, so please check back often for the most up-to-date information.


The USA Climbing: Bouldering Youth Regional Championships is the second phase of a multi-month series culminating with a national finals event in February of 2019. To learn more and to register, please go HERE.


All competitors must complete an ASCEND Waiver (a parent or guardian must complete on behalf of participants 17 and under). To save time, please complete this online before your arrival HERE.


Saturday, December 8 - While we can't provide times yet for regionals, the general schedule will be:AM StartWave #1: FYD, MYC, MYBWave #2: FJR, MYAPM StartWave #3: MYD, FYC, FYBWave #4: FYA, MJRTimes depend on number of competitors that register.


December 4 (Tuesday) 7a-11p - limited boulderingDecember 5 (Wednesday) 7a-11p - limited boulderingDecember 6 (Thursday) 7a-11p - no boulderingDecember 7 (Friday) 7a-5p - no boulderingDecember 8 (Saturday) CLOSED - Closed for championships (spectators welcome at no cost!)


This is a huge all-day event and WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are in need of volunteers to fill various positions and shifts on Saturday morning, afternoon, and evening. Positions include isolation volunteers (hanging out, warming up, and assisting the competitors before they climb) and climbing judges (ensuring that the rules are followed while competing). Parents and guardians of competitors are more than welcome to serve as judges, but are not permitted to be in contact or judge their youths. We will help ensure that this does not happen and encourage parents and guardians to selected shifts that are not in conflict (more on this to come, since we won't know the exact schedule until registration is complete).

All volunteers will receive 2 ASCEND Day Passes, a free event t-shirt, and lots of high-fives! REGISTER NOW!
