What are the requirements for chaperones?

Chaperones will be required to visit the gym prior to the day of the event where they will be trained on our safety rules as well the following:

Belaying: By using specialized equipment and techniques you ensure that the climber is securely held in case of a fall. Being a belayer requires trust, communication, and coordination to create a safe and enjoyable climbing experience for the climbers. Belaying requires a small amount of upper-body strength but most people get the hang of it pretty quickly, even our older students.

Auto Belays: An auto belay is a mechanical device designed to provide automatic belaying support to climbers without the need for a human belayer. Chaperones will help the child clip and unclip from the device as well as encourage the kids while they climb. 

Can parents or other family members join the field trip?

Yes, as long as they are an official chaperone for the field trip. Unfortunately we cannot accept non-chaperone family members during the event.

What safety measures are in place during the field trip?

TRG staff members will be present in all areas to monitor and ensure the safety of everyone present. Chaperones are also needed to help monitor the participants. Our staff are trained in safety procedures and we use proper safety equipment at all times.
