For Youth - Teams And Individual

Speed Qualifying Season:

February 1st to June 6th

There are nine Speed QEs  APPROVED & SCHEDULED at Cliff Hangers. Specific dates are on the Region 72 web page. The cost for speed trial QEs is $10 for USAC/KAYA registration and a gym competitor day pass for $15.

These qualifying events are for B, A, & Jr categories only. There will be a C/D speed 'jug' route for practice purposes only and there is no KAYA registration or USAC charge for C/D climbers to practice on the jug route, only gym day pass fees. 

KAYA registration links will be live on the start day of the event and will be updated on this event and our website as they become available. 

Updated Gym Chalk Policy: Chalk socks/chalk balls will be allowed in conjunction with the use of liquid chalk at the beginning of climbing. (ideally, liquid chalk will continue to be used as a way of sanitizing holds on routes).
