Junior Courses (Aged 8-17)
Want your children to get into climbing? We run a structured program for children aged 8 to 17 during the school term time. The sessions that we run progressively introduce climbing skills in a fun and relaxed way. During the sessions we normally work towards the National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme (NICAS). Progress for this is logged in a book and then certificates are awarded for each level completed. The children are continuously assessed throughout the sessions and when they are ready to move to the next level we will let you know. In some cases you will stay in the same class, in some cases you will move to a different class.
You can join our junior course program at the start of each school half term; spaces are limited so pre booking is essential. We normally run courses on Saturdays, but classes others may be available so get in touch to find out where we currently have spaces.
Payments are made in blocks of 6 weeks. If you wish your child to continue on their current course the next payment must be made before the start of the final session.
There is also a one off registration fee for a NICAS logbook which must be paid on the first session.
