PRACTICE & COMPETITION SCHEDULE:
The Rock Climbing Team is a two day a week commitment. Practices are either at LTS or at the Green Mountain Rock Climbing Gym in Rutland. Wednesday competitions are at the Green Mountain Rock Climbing Gym. There is a bus to and from the gym. The bus will return to LTS at 6:30 pm after practices. Families are also welcome to pick their child up at the gym. Please remember that we switch to “winter bus hours” on Monday, November 28 so all buses depart LTS at 3:00 pm with one late bus to The Manchester Community Library at 5:00 pm.
Prior to committing to the team, please read the information below.
COST: Two options are available for participation on the team at the Green Mountain Rock Climbing Gym.
- A la carte– Climbers pay 1/2 of the total cost of visiting the gym ($10 per Rutland practice or competition) for the duration of our climbing season. This adds up to $105. Long Trail School will pay the remaining $105 to cover the entire estimated cost of $210. This option only allows access to the gym during scheduled practices and competitions.
- Membership– This is the best arrangement for climbers who are interested in visiting the gym beyond the weekly practices, climbing season, and for climbers who live in the Rutland area. Here, the climber pays $145 towards the $250 gym membership. Long Trail School will pay the remaining $105. With this option, gym access extends into August!
