USA Climbing is excited to announce its relocation to Salt Lake City, Utah from Boulder, Colorado. USA Climbing will be the third national governing body to call Utah home behind U.S. Ski and Snowboard and US Speedskating.
"We look forward to calling the new Industry SLC development in Salt Lake City's Granary District our new home," said Marc Norman, USA Climbing's CEO. "With a strong climbing heritage, unrivaled access to indoor and outdoor climbing statewide, and a thriving business community, Salt Lake City is a great choice. Once established, we look to create a National Training Center, where our National Team athletes can regularly train to compete at the highest levels internationally."
"This move will serve to strengthen not just our Olympic Legacy, but also our Olympic future," said Jeff Robbins, president & CEO of the Utah Sports Commission. "The presence of USA Climbing in our community allows us to continue to help position the state as a leader in the international sports industry and to further focus on sports development as a key component of Utah's promotional and economic-development strategy."
"As USA Climbing prepares to make its Olympic Debut at the 2020 Olympic Summer Games in Tokyo, Japan, we are excited to announce the relocation of our National Headquarters to Salt Lake City," said Patti Rube, President of USA Climbing's Board of Directors. "USA Climbing has worked closely with the Utah Sports Commission, Salt Lake City, and local business leaders over the past two years for our Bouldering National Championships with tremendous results. We are eager to continue and expand this partnership as we prepare for the 2020 Olympic Games."
