    Please note, rosters are only needed for Divisional and National Championships. The process for team rosters is currently under review and being updated. You will no longer manage Teams and rosters through your USA Climbing account. More information will be communicated prior to the Collegiate Divisional Championships. Once available we will schedule a call for coaches and team managers to demonstrate the new process.
