Coaching will emphasize meeting goals as climbers and team members, and will push the climbers both mentally and physically. Team members are encouraged to attend and compete in the various competitions throughout the state of Florida and beyond.

All Vanguards receive full member benefits. If a Vanguard does not have their own equipment, VV will provide it on training days free of charge. We encourage and recommend all Vanguards climb more than just the scheduled sessions.
