The Southern Chapter Tree Climbing Championship (SOTCC) is an annual competition designed to test the professional skills of the region's working arborists. The SOTCC promotes safe working practices, demonstrates improvements and innovations in techniques and equipment, and provides industry recognition to the general public.
The preliminary events test a competitor's ability to quickly, professionally, and safely perform work-related tree-care tasks. Competitors with the highest scores during the preliminary events move on to compete in a final event called the Masters' Challenge. The Masters' Challenge winner is named the champion, and then goes on to represent the Southern Chapter at the International Tree Climbing Championship.
Volunteers with no ties to contestants are needed as technicians for the competition. CEUs are available for volunteering.
Climber's Application and the Volunteer forms will be available in December 2017.
Interested in sponsoring, contact the SOTCC chair, Scott Winningham.
