7 week course
Following the NICAS Bouldering (National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme) curriculum, our Junior Club is a termly course that aims to take young climbers from being complete beginners through to being competent and confident climbers.
Participants on this course will begin to work their way through NICAS Bouldering Level 1, "New Boulderer". The learning outcomes for Level 1 include learning how to use the walls safely, being able to demonstrate some basic climbing techniques, and completing some coach-selected challenges. Under the guidance of their coaches, young climbers will work through these outcomes at their own pace, and upon completing all of the outcomes, participants will receive a certificate in recognition of their achievements. (Please note: most climbers take longer than one term to complete Level 1, and each subsequent level contains more content and therefore takes longer to complete!)
Participation in our Junior Club course requires registering your child for the NICAS Bouldering scheme (this will be done by our coaches) and the purchase of their NICAS Bouldering log book, which we will use to keep track of their progress. This costs £6, which will be collected when you arrive for your first session.
Here at the Project we love to get kids active and having fun, so we try our best to provide options for everyone. Unfortunately under 4s cannot climb at our centre.
All under 18s must be supervised by a registered, competent adult climber
If you are unsure of what this means please call us before coming to the centre in order to avoid disappointment!
Registered adult climbers can supervise a maximum of 2 under 18s (aged 4+) at a time.
4 to 17
Any child between the ages of 4 and 17 can come and climb under the direct supervision of a registered, competent adult climber.
Our Family Induction is designed to introduce you and your family to an activity that you can all enjoy together regardless of age or ability. The course focuses on teaching parents the key skills to be able to safely bring children along and helps children to understand their role in keeping themselves and the people around them safe. The course is an hour and a half long and is run by one of our instructors.
This course is perfect if you want to bring your children yourself but have no previous experience
