Please include your USAC Membership number with any Local Registrations - numbers can no longer be looked up through the USAClimbing website as they have in years past.
Non-USAC members may participate in Local events, but MUST purchase a Day-membership.
ALL Day-member registrations CAN ONLY be done online the day of the local event.
However, if a climber decides they would like to compete at the Regional Championships, they must purchase an annual membership prior to the close of Regionals registration for the respective discipline in order to have the Local events retroactively counted toward their 2-comp participation requirement. This is a significant change from last year. (Tuesday immediately following at 11:59pm MT rule). The fees paid for a Day-member pass cannot be applied to a full-season membership at any point throughout the season.

2017 SPORT AND SPEED DIVISIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
Division 1 Regional Coordinators and USA Climbing are excited to announce Alaska Rock Gym in Anchorage, Alaska as the host for the 2017 Division 1 Sport and Speed Youth Championships.
Alaska Rock Gym is opening an expanded 20,000 square ft of climbing space in the Summer of 2016 and has hosted a dedicated Youth Team Program since 2006. With the growth in newly remapped Puget Sound and Cascadia Regions, there are limited facilities that are adequate and willing to host Championship events for over 200 Competitors. ARG’s expansion provides Division 1 with an additional venue with adequate size and support for a Championship event.
Alaska Rock Gym submitted a formal request to host the 2017 event to USA Climbing. Awarding Alaska Rock Gym the 2017 event was discussed among Puget Sound and Cascadia Regional Coordinators and with USA Climbing. The decision was finalized in May. The announcement is being made to the regions immediately in order to give families and teams adequate time to plan and fundraise. Specific dates of the event are TBA, but will take place in June of 2017.
Stay tuned to the Puget Sound and Cascadia Regional Pages for more details about the June 2017 event.
