The Team for Adults is a structured training and climbing program for anyone 18 and over who wants to work on becoming a stronger, more confident climber. We encourage team members to take part in local competitions as a means to set goals and push themselves to achieve but competition is not the goal--improvement and conditioning is.
The team will meet for practices on Sunday and Wednesday evenings from 7-10pm. Each practice will include climbing drills, technique instruction, cross training and strength conditioning. We'll follow a program designed to tackle each discipline and cover all aspects of practical training for climbers. By the end of the team year, you'll be stronger, have more power, better endurance and improved technique.
Being on the team will enhance your gym membership with the following perks:
Wholesale pricing on shoes Discounted fees for all MetroRock competitions Access to Team trips to climbing areas, including weekend trips to local crags and weeklong trips to the New River Gorge and Horsepens.

Challenge, Strength, and Confidence. Develop your organization into a stronger more cohesive unit through participation in the MetroRock Team Building Program! Individuals and teams will be pushed outside their levels of comfort to achieve success in both climbing and in business through a series of exercises that are challenging both physically and mentally.
Hosted at our world-class indoor rock climbing center, we work with you to identify your company/team goals, customize a team building program to meet your needs, and follow up to ensure that desired outcomes were achieved.
Our team building events include full use of our climbing walls and conference rooms. Your teams will be involved with meetings to plan and set goals. They'll compete in climbing problems and challenges and work together in mutually dependent situations. They will be pushed outside their comfort zones and have to solve problems or overcome an obstacle by utilizing their combined strength and power. Teams can be more effective than individuals and we stress the importance of relying on each other. They will remember their MetroRock experience for years to come and come away with new respect and appreciation for their coworkers and colleagues.
While each Team Building Program is tailored to your organization's goals and expectations, the examples below provide a range of programs that have been used with other companies:
Confidence Through Climbing Program Our most basic skill based climbing exercise. This is a 3 hour program that is organized as follows:
Climbing Fundamentals - Elemental climbing program taught in small groups. Focus on knots, gear, communication, and rope handling.
Skill and Movement - The second portion of the program is focused on developing climbing skills. The gym will be explored and participants will push their newly developing climbing limits to the extreme. Instructors aid participants throughout this process by demonstrating climbing style and technique.
Cost - $55 per participant. Use of a conference room is available for team meetings and meals.
Peak Development Team Building Event At a minimum of 4 hours long, this is our most comprehensive team building program. It is a custom designed event with your goals and expectations built in. Predetermined group exercises are used to elaborate on the themes that your organization most desires to work on. Specific activity based exercises that have been used in the past are:
Climbing Fundamentals - Elemental climbing program taught in small groups with a focus on knots, gear, communication, and rope handling. It is suggested that all team building programs start with this element for several reasons. Firstly, climbing is a trust-based sport that requires partners to work together. Secondly, much of the rest of the program involves various elements of climbing, all of which require basic knowledge.
Climbing Blind - Participants are completely blindfolded and asked to climb routes while partners on the ground are instructing the climber on how and where to climb. The focus of this exercise is communication development between the two partners. Post exercise facilitation is suggested. Trust Rappel - Have you ever leaned backwards over a 35 foot ledge? If you haven't this experience can be incredibly nerve wracking. To foster the trust bond between co-workers we will have a partner actually hold the rope that lowers the climber to the ground. Post exercise facilitation is suggested.
Water Balloon Drop - Groups of 5 or 6 meet in a private area for a fixed period of time. The goal of the group is to develop and build a safety container capable of catching a water balloon dropped from 35 feet. The materials used to build this container are simple raw materials such as string, straws, paperclips, etc. The exercise focuses on teamwork as groups must decide quickly on a design and build strategy. Post exercise facilitation is suggested.
Trivia Traverse - Working with a representative from your firm, specific company trivia is developed and used in this game. Groups are randomly selected and teams are timed on the traverse. Advancing through the traverse requires the correct answers. The focus of this exercise is group cohesion.
Speed Climbing Challenge - Groups are randomly selected and teams are formed in a timed exercise. Each team will record their participants time on 2 different routes. Speed is the focus. Teams then compare their aggregated times to determine the winner. The focus of this exercise is group cohesion. These are only examples of exercises that have been used in the past. We realize that not everyone in your group is at the same level of physical fitness or ability. The exercises above require different levels of fitness, some more and some less. We are happy to tailor the event to your group's abilities.
Cost - Contact us for a customized price based on your needs and parameters. Use of a conference room is available for team meetings and meals.

Team MetroRock is a youth climbing team that meets 9 months out of the year to train for competitions and have some fun climbing. Though competing isn't mandatory, our team trains for local, regional and national competitions as part of the United States Competition Climbing Association (USCCA). Each year, several members typically advance to nationals.
The coaching staff work with kids from grade school to high school in weekly practice sessions. We help kids become competition level climbers through technique and strength development as well as climbing safety at higher levels. Team kids have fun, learn to work hard to achieve their goals and reach their full potential.
Our facilities feature extensive bouldering areas and tall walls for rope climbing, giving team members plenty of terrain to work on both disciplines. Optional trips to outdoor climbing areas, both regional and around the country ,round out the training and give members a chance to take their skill to real rock.

We provide several workout-specific areas in our gym, including our 1,800 sq ft training mezzanine which includes a Treadwall and several System Walls with varying degrees of overhang.

MetroRock Boston is home to one of the very few indoor ropes courses in the country, providing year-round adventure. In fact we have two separate venues - a "big kids" course and a course specifically designed for younger kids!
We use the latest technology to ensure a comfortable experience: our self-belay equipment allows the customer to control where and when they move within the course, while eliminating the possibility of accidentally detaching from the safety lines. Finally, our courses are inspected and licensed by the State to meet all national ACCT standards.
