Erie Sports Commission’s Hosting Go Play Day at ASCEND

Mar 04, 2024

The Erie Sport Commission has partnered with ASCEND Climbing to bring an exciting event to Erie. On Sunday, March 10, ASCEND Climbing will be providing kids under the age of 14 with the free opportunity to go rock climbing.

Two sessions will be held, the first from 12-1 p.m. followed by a second session from 1:30-2:30 p.m. Although the event is free, participants must register prior to the event. Registration for both sessions opens today and will stay open until full. Each session is limited to 15 participants, each of whom will receive a pass to return to ASCEND Climbing for one day of free rock climbing.

“ASCEND Erie is excited to partner with the Erie Sports Commission for this great community program,” General Manager Chris Rosato Jr. said. “At ASCEND, we believe climbing is for everyone and want to make our sport accessible to everyone. We also believe a well-rounded, active lifestyle helps children develop strong minds and bodies. Community is one of the pillars of ASCEND, from building our own community in the gym to forming strong partnerships within our Erie community. We can't wait to welcome new climbers into our gym and provide a free opportunity to members of the public to see what climbing is all about.”

A signed waiver is required for anyone entering the facility including adults and young children. ASCEND will provide climbing shoes, which must be worn when climbing.

ASCEND Erie is a new fitness venue on State Street that offers rock climbing to the public. ASCEND offers many different programs such as personal training, yoga, fitness and climbing. They also provide youth programs that include youth and family climbing sessions, classes, camps, and clubs.

The Erie Sports Commission’s Go Play Day program is supported in part by Lamar Advertising and Erie News Now.
