802-New England East

USA Climbing New England East (NEE) region 802 is VT, NH, ME, and eastern MA.
Please join the New England East Facebook group for news and announcements.

All information about local and championship competitions for New England East members will be posted on this region homepage. This region homepage is the first place to look for schedule, running orders, volunteer info, etc. We will sometimes use the Facebook group to announce updates to this region homepage. However, there are many USAC members who are not on Facebook, so that is not our primary communication channel.

VOLUNTEERS

Why do climbing competitions require so many volunteers, even with all the registration fees?
> Please read this

MULTI-ZONE SCORING SYSTEM FOR BOULDERING

We recommend before attending regionals, all competitors, coaches, and parents
      - read the explanation regarding the NEW Multi-zone scoring format 
      - and watch the new Bouldering Rules video.
The multi-zone scoring format will be used for all Bouldering Championship events: Regionals, Divisionals, Nationals (Youth & Open).

No experience is necessary to judge bouldering championship competitions, and the multi-zone scoring system is straightforward, much simpler than the old system. You'll be paired with another (experienced) judge you can learn from and can help ensure that you should be able to watch your climber. We will train you so that you feel ready!

MEMBERSHIPS

USA Climbing memberships for the Sept 1, 2018 to Aug 31, 2019 competition year are now available.

RULES

In order to help avoid disappointment, confusion, or even disqualification, it is everyone's responsibility to know and understand the USA Climbing rules.

We highly recommend that everyone be familiar with the USA Climbing Rulebook.  There are some significant changes made to the rules for the 2017-2018 year, and the first section of the rulebook is "Significant Changes -- Overview."  This is a great place to start if you've read the rulebook before.

All climbers, parents, coaches, friends, and especially judges and belayers: please watch the Bouldering or Sport Rules video on the USA Climbing Rulebook page prior to attending Regionals, Divisionals, or Nationals.

If there is any climbers briefing in iso, it might be primarily for items specific to that competition or to that venue/gym.  The climbers briefing cannot (and will not) fully review all the rules. It is the responsibility of the coaches and climbers to ensure they know the rules.
