On Sunday, December 8th Team ABC along with La Sportiva and Adidas Outdoors hosted a pro clinic open to all youth climbers who participated in the ABS 15 Regional competition. The clinic focused on reviewing the competition performance and how to overcome challenges the climbers experienced the previous day.
Over 70 athletes participated and eight local professional climbers donated their time: Angie Payne, Kasia Pietras, Alex Puccio, Nina Williams, Courtney Woods, Jon Cardwell, Matty Hong and Paul Robinson. We are so thankful and appreciative for their support of the event which was featured in Monday’s Boulder Daily Camera
This day would not have been possible without the support of the sponsors and the professional climbers.
Thank you for an experience that was definitely enjoyed by all. Just check out the photos!

Team ABC is proud to announce that Alex Puccio has joined its’ world class coaching staff.
Alex is a seven time USAC bouldering national champion. Other highlights of 2013 include 3rd place overall in the ISFC Bouldering World Cup Series and wins at the Arco Rockmasters and Vail World Cup.
Robyn Raboutou, Team ABC Founder and Head Coach explains Alex’s natural fit to the coaching line-up. “All of Team ABC is excited to have Alex on board. She is one of the top female climbers of this generation and her experiences as a youth climber is similar to that of the Team ABC athletes. Her passion, talent and dedication are a perfect complement to our program.”
Alex started climbing as a teenager and quickly progressed to the top-tier of the sport. She has always sought to share her passion of climbing so coaching is a natural progression. “By coaching the up and coming rock stars of our future, I can give back to the sport I love. I can share my knowledge and experiences gained over the past 11 years with these young climbers in the hopes that it will assist them in achieving their goals and ambitions for the future,” stated Alex.

Team ABC was excited to see such a great response to our team tryouts this past weekend. Not only was it wonderful seeing last year’s athletes but we are thrilled to have so many new faces eager to become part of our great program. We will be sending out emails as to the team placements shortly.
ABC has programs for athletes of all abilities and we look forward to our new season starting next week. See you at practice.
Go Team ABC!
