Performance Climbing Coach is the brain-child of Tyler Nelson and Steve Bechtel. Over the course of their climbing careers, they noticed a shift from individuals seeking coaching to coaches asking how to assess, manage, plan and program for their athletes. Thus, exposing a significant need in the climbing coach community to standardize coaching. Hence, Performance Climbing Coach.


First, who should attend?

  • Climbing coaches and gym owners looking to increase their knowledge of 1-on-1 coaching
  • Team coaches hoping to improve their assessments, programming, and session design
  • Coaches looking to increase their athletes’ adherence to training and nutrition plans
  • Self-coached climbers wanting to learn the most effective way to build their training programs
  • Climbers looking to refine their warm-ups, strength training plans, and nutrition strategies.
  • Climbers looking to better understand training programming.
  • Boulderers and climbers seeking to refine their technique and skill practice

Second, we are expert performance climbing coaches. The curriculum is constantly evolving. After each seminar, we work diligently to review and improve the content for the next event.

PCC brings together all aspects of climbing coaching to standardize how we assess, manage, and train athletes. Ultimately, PCC provides coaches with the tools needed to effectively train and manage climbing athletes.

This will be the largest PCC we've ever offered. No longer are we limited by time and venue space! Plus, this PCC will have the largest selection of instructors we've ever offered.

Each course offered in the Classroom features a detailed presentation by our team of expert instructors, supporting notes, and a live video call with the presenters at the end of the course. If you are looking for the most up-to-date information on climbing coaching and training, and want to know how to apply it in your own life, this is the place.

We've found that our students learn best via a combination of lecture, demonstration, and question/answer. With our class format, we work to optimize all three in order to provide the best learning opportunity possible.
