Boulder Club – (Ages 8-16)
The Climbing Academy Glasgow and Bristol are both Primary Centres for the National Indoor Bouldering Award Scheme.
NIBAS is a 5 level award that starts with safe and simple bouldering and moves all the way up to high performance climbing. Each level will take the youngster a little longer to complete than the previous one as it builds skills, knowledge, confidence and performance.
Registration with the scheme costs £6.00 and includes the candidate's logbook. This is done when the child starts their Level 1.
If they are coming to Boulder Club for the first time, we'd advise that you arrive 20 minutes earlier to watch our safety video and complete a registration form. You can make this more efficient by completing the form online here.
NIBAS is the perfect structure to lead young boulderers as they develop but is also great for DofE and other awards.
As the youngsters develop, they may wish to try out for The TCA Ellis Brigham Boulder Squad who compete both locally and nationally and are coached twice a week.
If your child is an established climber but has never been to our Centre, please phone to discuss how they can get involved. Otherwise simply follow the links above to go to our online bookings page for either centre.
