FUNdamentals of Climbing

There are three FUNdamentals workshops, each building the knowledge and skills of the coach from working with novices when they're at that tricky stage of learning the basic climbing skills, through to more advanced key skills required to climb more complex terrain. It is necessary that participants undertake the workshops in sequential order.


The workshops are ideal for anyone climbing with children or novice adults including full-time coaches and climbing wall staff, teachers and Active Schools Coordinators, youth workers, Duke of Edinburgh or Scouts and Guides leaders, parents or club members. 


They also help climbing squad coaches and those coaching adults of any age; and indeed climbers themselves will find the more advanced workshops useful for developing their own personal skills.
