Chattanooga Interscholastic Climbing League
Outdoor Chattanooga  is excited to once again host the Interscholastic Climbing League  (ICL) for middle and high school students in the Chattanooga area. The ICL introduces 6-12th grade student to a challenging sport in an environment that emphasizes communication, teamwork, and positive social interaction without the competitive pressures often associated with traditional sports. The ICL offers six organized meets for school teams to compete in through the winter months at the three local climbing gyms. Prior experience is not required to participate in the league. Most area schools, including public, private and home schools have established climbing teams. Check with your school to see if a team already exists and how to join. If your school doesn't have a team,  email Outdoor Chattanooga  or call 423-643-6888 to find out how to form a new team or compete individually.
