Squads

£110 per month Foundation
£160 per month Development

Our coaches are always on the lookout for young people with the dedication, enthusiasm and skills to push their climbing to the highest levels. When we think we have found them we invite them to join our advanced coaching Squads.

The focus of our Squads is high-level climbing, competition and performance but, more specifically we aim to have fun, if anybody does well that’s a nice bonus. We find generally the climbers who are having the most fun often climb the best.

Younger climbers aged under 12 will be part of our Foundation Squad, and over 12s will join the Development Squad.

The Squads are invite-only, but if you’re interested in joining, please contact our Chief Instructor ([email protected]), and we can discuss any options available. Please also check out our climber checklist to see what we’re looking for.
