The IFSC Climbing Youth World Championships are the biennial world championships for competition climbing established by the International Federation of Sport Climbing. These competitive events determine the world champions in the three disciplines of sport climbing: bouldering, lead climbing, and speed climbing.
This year, more than 300 young climbers are expected to gather in Dallas to compete.
“We are honored USA Climbing and the IFSC has chosen us to co-host the 2022 Youth World Championships,” explains Movement executive vice president, Stephanie Ko Pound. “With this being the first time the event has been hosted on US soil, we are excited for this unique opportunity to further our sport on the world stage while bringing together and inspiring the next generation of Olympic hopefuls.”
The IFSC Youth World Championship is considered one of the pinnacle events in the world of competitive climbing. This is the first time the competition will be held in the U.S.
This year’s bouldering discipline will be held entirely at Movement The Hill, nestled in The Hill Shopping Center at 8021 Walnut Hill Lane in Dallas. The Youth World Championships run from August 22 through August 31, 2022.

It was created in January 2007 as a continuation of the International Council for Competition Climbing, which was created in 1997. The IFSC’s main objectives are the direction, regulation, promotion, development, and furtherance of climbing competitions around the world.
