Sunday Morning Gym Fees- Before heading back to Boise, we have a team practice at the local gym in town. We will cover the cost of your climber’s day pass.
Scholarships and Financial Assistance- We want all athletes with the desire to be on the climbing team to have the opportunity. Because of this, we offer scholarships and financial assistance to those who couldn’t join the BCT otherwise. You can find the application here.
