Team ABC Boulder Adidas SCS Regionals Sport Climbing 2013

We are very proud to share that Team ABC Boulder took 13 first place finishes at the Sport Climbing Series Regional Championship at the Boulder Rock Club this weekend!

The full category results are not yet published online, but we will share them when we have them.

Team ABC also came in 2nd overall for the team championship. The Team Championship is the combined scores from sport and speed from the team’s top competitors in all categories. Because Team ABC is missing Female Junior in Lead and Female Junior, Male Junior, and Female Youth A for Speed, we got zero in those categories (out of a potential 100 points per, or 400 total points we were unable to compete for). Team ABC crushed it and almost overcame the huge deficit for 1st overall, but in the end we were down 20 points and took a still proud 2nd place.

Great job to all ABC athletes for all their hard work!

On to Divisionals!!!

ABC Learn to Climb Day

TEAM ABC OFFERS FREE LEARN TO CLIMB DAY

2013 ABS NATIONAL YOUTH TEAM CHAMPIONS WILL TEACH THE SPORT OF CLIMBING

Boulder, CO, April 2013 – Team ABC and ABC Kids Climbing in conjunction with LaSportiva and Adidas are proud to announce the 1st annual Learn to Climb Day. Families from all over Colorado are invited to join Team ABC, current ABS National Team Champions to learn the basics of climbing. This free event will be held on Sunday, May 5th from 2-5 PM in the ABC climbing gym, 1960 32nd Street in Boulder. The ABC gym is the only dedicated kids climbing and training facility in the world.

The goal of Learn to Climb Day is to expose new families to the sport of climbing. Climbing is an activity that can be enjoyed by all ages and abilities throughout the state of Colorado. Participants will have the chance to climb at multiple stations set up in the facility, including The Monkey Pavilion, an area dedicated for the youngest of climbers. The “coaches” at each station will be Team ABC youth athletes and coaches. Essentially kids will be taught by kids. In addition to climbing, the event features a dunk tank, face painting, kid friendly exhibits and giveaways from local businesses.

There has been significant growth in the sport of climbing over the past few years due to an increase in the number of climbing gyms along with the focus of Boulder based USA Climbing on the competition aspect. In addition, this sport is on the horizon to be included as an Olympic sport in 2020. “As climbing becomes more mainstream, we recognize that this is an excellent opportunity to have Team ABC show the local community what the sport of climbing is about and that all children can participate. We are excited to teach local families about the basics of climbing and have fun doing it” says Robyn Raboutou, Head Coach of Team ABC.

The ABC Kids Climbing program and Team ABC were founded in 2004 by Robyn Raboutou, a world class climber who had the vision of teaching the next generation of climbers. Robyn is the most titled female climber in the world. She has won the US Championship five times and is the winner of four World Cup Titles. ABC stands for agility, balance and coordination. The ABC program is based around inspiring confidence and self-esteem in children as young as two. These crucial skills are the building blocks of all athletics.

The ABC Kids climbing gym is open seven days a week and offers multiple recreational and competitive climbing programs for kids of all ages. The programs include Team ABC, clubs, classes, birthday parties, camps, outdoor programs, open gym and parents’ night out.
