Join our Climbing Teams!

We are creating rock climbing teams all over the US to support individuals with different abilities to promote physical, mental and social skills. The minimum age requirement to participate is 5, no maximum age to participate.

At United Rocks, we have an option for every skill level. Our goal is to create a community where kids and adults with different abilities feel safe, learn new skills, be part of a team, have fun and compete on the national stage.

We have practices once a week for 2 hours all year long. We currently have practices at Movement Plano, Grapevine and Design District and Dyno Rock in Arlington, Texas on Sundays. We do not have practices on the 3rd Sunday of every month. Practices coming soon to Englewood, CO, Crystal City, VA and Santa Ana, CA.

Like other sports, it requires consistency and commitment from parents and climbers. That is why we recommend new families to come to our one-month free trial. This period of time will give your family the opportunity to try rock climbing and see if this is a good fit for all of you.

There is no barrier to starting on the team. Simply, fill out the form below, attend the trial period, choose which team you want to join, be committed and climb on!

Types of Rock Climbing

Our teams are currently practicing “Top Rope” only. We will introduce other types of climbing for the climbers that are ready to transition when they get more experience.

Top Rope

It is a type of climbing on longer walls using a fixed rope. The rope runs from the belayer at the bottom of the direction to an anchor system at the top and backs down to the climber.

Auto Belay

This is an automatic device that takes up slack as the climber climbs the wall and controls the descent, eradicating the need for a belay partner.

Bouldering

It is all about climbing on shorter walls, without a rope above crash mats.

Lead Climbing

It is climbing on longer walls, without a fixed rope. As the climber goes up, they slide the rope into safety equipment connected to the wall.

Full-Body Workout

Benefits of Rock Climbing

This sport pushes the climber to his/her limits and gives them a huge sense of accomplishment. Rock climbing is a low-impact exercise, which means it is easier on the body, particularly the joints, while still being a great full-body workout.

Builds Physical Strength

Although safe and appropriate for beginners, rock climbing works lots of different muscles at the same time. It increases strength, grip, flexibility, and endurance. It’s great for balance and increasing mobility.

Sharpens Mental Skills

Physical activity stimulates the brain and improves cognitive function. Rock climbing develops hand-eye coordination while increasing the sense of spatial awareness. It boosts problem-solving skills and focuses the mind. The sport even has meditative effects relieving stress, and bolsters ambition and personal motivation.

Promotes Social Interactions

Climbers are very social; they welcome and support new climbers, giving them a sense of belonging. The sport builds confidence, trust, and a sense of happiness. Rock climbing improves communication skills and is great for building self-esteem.
