COVID Protocols

The following are the steps we’re taking across all facilities to keep our Youth Team climbers safe, while still giving them the opportunity to climb, during this time. Please make sure your climber is ready to follow these instructions from their first day of team onwards.
  • Any climber or coach exhibiting any symptoms will be required to stay home
  • All climbers are required to wear a facemask, including coaches and climbers
  • Climbers will move in smaller groups and these groups will not mix. Each group is set for the foreseeable future.
  • Climbers and coaches will be asked to maintain a distance of 6ft. from one another as much as possible.

Upcoming USAC Competitions

*Competition & Select Team Specific*
  • The Fall Competition Season will run November thru December
  • Competitions will be virtual, with climbers entering scores and logging videos using an app called Kaya.
    This app allows you to keep a logbook recording number of attempts, videos of ascents, and other information related to competitions
    • USA Climbing put out a great FAQ, details on registering for a competition are found on page 7.
    • You can learn more about submitting videos HERE.
    • Be sure to keep a written record of all completed climbs and all videos in case of a technical issue w/ Kaya.
    • Be sure to review our Region (#52) page and note that all competition registration & scoring is done through USAC & Kaya, not the gym.
  • Competitions are in a two-week redpoint format. Climbers may climb and submit videos any time over the two week competition period.
  • Final score is the combined value of your five hardest ascents during that two week period
  • You can project problems as much as you want over the two week competition period
  • Regionals qualification is determined by your points total from one competition
  • There are two competitions in our immediate area, coaches will be available to support climbers during the times listed but climbers can work projects outside of these times.
    • November 9th-22nd @ The Crag
    • December 7th-20th @ Climb Murfreesboro
      • Climb Murfreesboro YT members will work projects during practice at these times
      • Coaches will be at Climb Murfreesboro from 10am-1pm on December 12th
        Select Team is not required to take part in this competition but you may if you wish! Reach out to Coach Sam (sam.helgeson@climbnashville.com) if you have any questions!

Step-by-Step USAC Registration

*Competition & Select Team Specific*
  • Carefully read description of Competitor and Introductory Memberships
    • Follow the link labeled "Click Here to Log In or Purchase a 2020-2021 Membership"
    • Create an account and follow instructions for purchasing Competitor Membership or Introductory Membership
      • Competitor Membership allows climbers to qualify for Regionals
      • Introductory Membership allows climbers to compete in qualifying events but these climbers must upgrade to a Competitor Membership prior to a qualifying event in order for said event to count towards Regionals qualification.
    • Upon registration you will receive a Membership ID for your climber. Please send that ID, along with your climber's DOB, in response to Coach Sam at sam.helgeson@climbnashville.com. That information will allow me to add the climber to our team roster.
  • Please note that, due to all our locations (Nashville, Bentonville, and Murfreesboro) being in the same competitive region, we are now under the team name: The Climb Team. Climbers from all facilities will compete under this team name.

Off Season Team Membership

Please note that, without Recreation or Select Team practices in December, there will be no Team Dues for the month of December. If you have a gym membership it will be transferred from $30 to $50 for the month of December. All dues and membership charges will be returned to normal for January. If you would like to cancel membership dues for the month of December please contact Coach Sam at sam.helgeson@climbnashville.com before November 20th.
