about team texas…
Team Texas is Summit’s world-class youth climbing team. Team Texan’s compete on the national and world level in USA Climbing and IFSC competitions. Athletes range from 8 to 18 years old and practices are hosted at all Summit locations.
Founded in 1996, Team Texas is the longest-running, and most successful youth climbing team in the nation. While we are a competitive bunch, we also believe in the camaraderie that comes with being part of a team and having respect for the environment, as well as for each other.
Our Mission is to provide opportunities to experience the rewarding moments when hard work and commitment are matched with accomplishments and success.
Team practices are held at various Summit locations. Athletes are required to attend at lease 3 practices per week outside of private lessons and regular climbing sessions. In addition to practices, Team Texas hosts several training camps, trips and events on the weekends. Practices continue year-round, even during summer.
