Well, Fall is here and that means back in the gym for Erinn Locke to prepare for the 2016-17 competition climbing season. Along with teammates on the the Newfoundland junior climbing team, she will be competing in Newfoundland, Ontario and Quebec this year in hopes of qualifying for the Canadian national championships in the spring. It’s always a time of hope, goals, aspiration and anticipation for the season ahead. Check out her photo gallery!
As with most amateur athletes the only thing holding them back is money. This is especially true for young athletes from Newfoundland where travel to train and compete in other parts of Canada can be prohibitively expensive. If you are interesting in sponsoring some extremely talented young climbers who want to represent Newfoundland in the up and coming sport (which will be an Olympic sport in 2020!) please get in touch on the Team Webpage!
The Newfoundland Youth Climbing team is sanctioned and supported by the Newfoundland Section of the Alpine Club of Canada.
