BRC Hosts the US National Junior World Cup Team Training Camp
For the third year in a row, the Boulder Rock Club is hosting the US National Junior World Cup Team Training Camp. The camp is designed to assess the ability of the kids and organize their training before the they head to the Junior Wold Cup taking place in Valence, France.
Team members fly in from around the country to meet other team members, train for the coming competition and work with a variety of world class coaches. The training helps the competitors become familiar and comfortable with the group before the World Cup competition.
The BRC's head trainer and climbing coach, Chris Wall, specifically assess the physical conditioning of each athlete and works with the individual to increase performance and prevent injury. Each team member receives a personal evaluation from Chris to help with preparation for the competition in Europe.
We are fortunate to have some of the best climbing coaches from around the country working the camp this year. They include Claudiu Vidulescu from Atlanta, John Myrick from Autsin, Mike Lyons from Baltamore, and Chris Wall from Boulder.
Look out for these amazing youth athletes all week at the Boulder Rock Club and wish them the best as they represent the US at the Would Cup.
