2020-2021 Youth Climbing Season

Bouldering season is tentatively scheduled to start 
November 2. However, there are currently no Virtual Qualifying Events scheduled in Region 31 due to extended Southern California gym closures. The Regional Coordinators are in contact with potential Region 31 host facilities and will update the schedule below as gyms reopen. Competitors should check this page frequently as competitions may be added with little notice. Thanks for your patience and understanding!

Notes from USA Climbing:

1.      The schedule below is tentative until each event is confirmed between the Host Gym, Kaya, and USA Climbing. An event is NOT OFFICIAL UNTIL LISTED AS APPROVED on the spreadsheet below.

2.      Each gym has its own set rules for facility access regarding the pandemic and participation in the competition. Please familiarize yourself with the gyms policies prior to participation in an event.

1.     Competitors should first check the host facility’s website to identify any local health department restrictions or other compliance requirements prior to their visit. Some areas or facilities may have restrictions in place that require competitors and/or spectators to make reservations to climb at the host facility.

2.     If required, competitors should make a reservation to climb at the host facility during the designated two-week competition period prior to registering for the event within the KAYA app. Reservations may also be required for spectators. Please go to the host facility website for reservation instructions and event instructions. Please contact the host facility with any questions regarding access for the competition.

3.      Competitors should keep a written record of their completed boulders and videos of those boulders in the event a technical issue arises with the KAYA app. The written record should include the event name as listed on the USA Climbing website, date and time of your climbing session, photo of each completed boulder and each completed boulder’s name, color and grade. Please don’t forget to also capture videos of your completed boulders!

4.      Registration will take place through Kaya and USA Climbing, not through the gyms. Competitors MUST possess a current USA Climbing Introductory or Competitor Membership in order to participate. In order to be ranked and qualify for Regionals, a Competitor Membership is required.

5.     USA Climbing will be releasing a set of rules specific to the Virtual Qualifying Events, an FAQ Document, Instructions for Competitors using KAYA, and an updated rules video for bouldering.
