Tulsa Climbing Team

Climb Tulsa has a competitive climbing team for youth climbers who strive to work hard, improve their climbing abilities, have a healthy and positive competitive attitude, and perform at the highest level capable within themselves.

We train throughout the year and have focused practice within the 2 official climbing seasons from early fall to late spring, attending at least 3 competitions in each season. Practices are twice weekly along with the expectation to train and climb outside of practice times as well. Tryouts are hosted in August every year.

Competitions take us near and far to different climbing facilities from around Oklahoma to various parts of the US for those qualifying for upper level championships. We try to add outdoor climbing trips to competition travel when possible.

The team has 2 subdivisions; A Team and B Team.
The A Team is our designated competition team that commits to longer and more serious training regiments, to 2 local comps and Regionals per season, and to participate in both competitive seasons; Bouldering and Sport.
The B Team is our recreational comp team that has shorter practice times and has no obligation toward any competition in any season and are only required to participate in one season at a time.
The purpose of B Team is to give an introduction to competitive climbing.
