Chippenham Youth Squad

White Angles


The TCA Chippenham Youth Squad comprises young climbers who have been selected to represent The Climbing Academy (TCA) at local, national and international climbing competitions. 

There is a busy competition calendar that includes events such as the British Mountaineering Councils ‘Youth Climbing Series’ (BMC YCS), Blokfest and the Junior British Bouldering Championships. 

Although competitions are great fun and are a clear and tangible way to demonstrate the abilities of our athletes, they are just a small part of bouldering and climbing. We want the team to experience all aspects of the sport, so members are regularly taken to some of the UK’s top outdoor climbing and bouldering locations. When possible we also run squad trips to notable outdoor climbing areas, such as the Peak District.

Take part


The squad year runs from 1 January to 31 December. Squad selection is held in December each year. There are no prerequisites, so any young climber can attend team selection.
