The GYMS Act provides additional support to the indoor climbing industry in the United States through critical funding. The bill is currently working its way through Congress. The CWA has partnered with Access Fund to create an easy way to get your community engaged in supporting the indoor climbing industry during and after the pandemic.

COVID-19 Community Calls and Webinars

All throughout the pandemic, the CWA worked with the industry to provide a platform, sometimes multiple times a month, for members to connect and problem-solve together. We hosted Community Calls and Webinars, began advocacy initiatives, and more.
