Countdown to Reopening

Edge Development Club for young people 7 – 14 years.

The Edge Club is for young people who want to learn to climb. The sessions focus on the levels of the National Indoor Climbing Award Schemes (NICAS & NIBAS) and participants will have registered for both those schemes before starting the club (£9 for both at GCC reception).

Sessions will run on Saturday or Sunday mornings from 9:00-10:45, or for Edge 2 and 3, on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 – 7:45

We have taken the decision to focus more on climbing movement skills (from the NIBAS syllabus), not just the technical safety aspects of climbing, so participants will receive coaching in a bouldering setting. If your climber has already reached a NICAS level, consider booking 1 session in the level below, so coaches can assess the appropriate NIBAS level to work on.

Our Climbing coaches will be on hand to develop the kids climbing skills whilst monitoring and updating their log books. NICAS and NIBAS help to provide focus, structure and progression to the kids climbing sessions.   As with all of our individual clubs, booking is limited to enable regular participants to book weekly. If your child enjoys climbing and would like to start NICAS, talk to us next time you are in.

You can find details of the course syllabus on the NICAS and NIBAS webpages.
