Fall Level 1 Clinic Announced

8 Sep

We have scheduled one new public Level 1 Clinics for this fall and the info for each is below. If you want to participate we encourage you to register as soon as possible as there have been a lot of routesetters expressing interest in Level 1 Clinics this summer and the summer clinics we ran filled up in a couple days. Registration is first-come, first-served and you should have 6 months experience routesetting and be able to work 5.10/V3

Clinic location and info:
October 8/9 – Evo Rock and Fitness Indianapolis; Indianapolis, IN – Chief Instructor John Muse
A Level 1 Clinic is an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in improving their overall routesetting, learning fundamental skill sets for competition routesetting, and taking the first step towards advancing as a USAC competition routesetter. Please go to the CLINICS page and register directly through the link for the clinic.

We are also working on scheduling Level 1 Clinics for later this fall and winter. If you work with a climbing gym and may be interested in hosting a Level 1 Clinic, or have general questions about the program, please contact the Administrator of the Routesetting Clinic and Certification Program, Chris Danielson at info@usacsetting.net.

Routesetter Membership Registration Now Open

8 Sep

Routesetter Membership Registration is now open for the 2015-2016 season and can be purchased directly at www.usaclimbing.net/shop. Routesetter Memberships cost $55.00 and are good through the 2015-2016 season. Important note – any memberships purchased during the season will expire 08.31.16 as they are only for the competitive season.

As announced in January, for the 2015-2016 season, Routesetters applying to work at any position at National competitions, Divisional Internships, and those working as Chief Routesetters for Championship (Regional or Divisional) level events, must have a current USAC Routesetter Membership. Additionally, all USAC Certified Routesetters will need to maintain this USAC Routesetter Membership in order to be listed on the USAC Certified Routesetter list we maintain on the Resources section of this website.

The registration is now open and we encourage you to get your membership as soon as possible if you plan to work as the Chief of upcoming Regional or Divisionals, or apply for any National positions or Divisional Internships. You may also want to renew your membership to be listed on the Certified Routesetters list as “active,” but there is no requirement to do so beyond the above, and your certification will not expire.

Benefits to Routesetter Membership:

  • Eligible to set for National events or as Chief Routesetters for Championship events. The application and selection process will remain the same, as detailed on the Competitions page.
  • Listed on USA Climbing Certified Routesetters List on Resources page of this website. This list will be updated bi-monthly based on current USAC Routesetter Membership registration and may later be implemented into a new USA climbing official website.
  • Workman’s compensation insurance coverage to those working at National events. USAC will provide, either in partnership with host facilities or directly, additional workman’s comp coverage to any routesetter paid by USAC at these events.
  • Any questions, please contact Chris Danielson at info@usacsetting.net
