Kids Club - Intro to NICAS Bouldering
6yrs to 11yrs & 12yrs to 16yrs
Our Saturday Morning Coach Led Session is designed for kids from 7 to 11yrs old & 12 to 16yrs. This is a coach led session so parents can chill in the cafe with a coffee or leave and come back to collect their child.
These sessions will be pre planned and will work on all aspects of climbing such as footwork, static movement, dynamic movement, balance, flow and technical skills, whilst playing games. They will also learn climbing etiquette and how to stay safe at the wall.
These classes are taster sessions for NICAS Bouldering, that will replace kids club on Sat 25th March. NICAS is a National recognised qualification, the scheme promotes good practice as defined by the whole sector and has good links to further pathways so that young boulderers can progress into competition, coaching, outdoor climbing or independent social climbing with their friends and families.
The structure of the schemes is all about motivating a prolonged involvement and progression and over 13,000 participants take part in the schemes each year

Kids Club - Intro to Wild Climbers
3yrs to 7yrs
Our Sunday Morning Coach Led Session is based for kids from 3 to 7yrs old.
As this is a coach led session, parents can chill in the cafe with a coffee or leave and come back to collect their child.
NICAS Wild Climbers offers climbing skills for all, from age 3 and upwards. It's a fun, game orientated programme that aims to introduce climbers safely into the indoor climbing environment, developing their awareness of climbing movements, improving confidence and creating a grassroots pathway into additional climbing activities. Wild Climbers is a programme that is designed to be inclusive and accessible for all.
NICAS Wild Climbers meets the 3 key learning areas of the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) which is the precursor to Key Stage 1, and includes Communication, Physical Development, and Social & Emotional Development.
Additionally, the NICAS Wild Climbers resources encourage inclusivity for all participants, including climbers with additional needs. The programme allows the skill areas to be individualised when setting personal goals.

Parents & Toddlers
Our parents and toddlers meetup is a casual and relaxed environment to give you and your little one a chance to climb or just simply socialise with other parents.
This isn’t an instructed session, but a member of staff will be present to make sure everything runs nicely. Children love to climb - it comes naturally to them. This is a chance to get your little ones active and introduce them to a fun environment with other small climbers. You can take things at your own pace helping toddlers on the mats or supporting them climbing the walls.
If you are new to us and are visiting for the first time we will need you to fill out our minors waiver form. These forms include a short safety video. You can book a session online or simply show up on the day. A single session costs £9. The times for our parent toddler groups are Monday, Wednesday and Friday 9:15 to 10:45am.
