Our Vision

Bridge the Gap.

 
 

The Reason we started Next Move Climbing Academy...

Both Ken and Carly have been a part of the climbing community for over 30 years combined, and have watched the sport change and progress immensely over time.  They wanted to be able to take students outside, because they believe every climber should have the opportunity to experience outdoor climbing. 

 

What we noticed...

  • The need to bridge the growing gap between indoor and outdoor climbing. 
  • The need to educate students on climbing history 
  • The need to provide mentorship in climbing, where it has become less and less prevalent 
  • The need to teach students how to fail, how to try hard, how to succeed, and how to support each other through it all.

NEXT MOVE CLIMBING ACADEMY IS FOCUSED ON CLIMBING COACHING AND MENTORSHIP IN THE OUTDOOR REALM.

We are not merely taking students climbing; we are demonstrating and implementing climbing techniques as well as the physics of climbing movement. Next Move will facilitate students'  growth in climbing by having them problem-solve and adapt to various climbing terrain and difficulty. We want to help climbers develop self-awareness, self-confidence, and a growth mindset. Our programs are designed to challenge as well as inspire climbers to take ownership of their goals and responsibility for their progress. 

 *We keep ratios low, at most 5:1, for more focused and dedicated coaching. 

This is the NEXT MOVE for students to take their climbing to the next level.
