8-15s courses

White Angles


Youth Xtreme (8-15S)

Our youth climbing sessions focus on creating skilled and safe rope climbers. They are delivered by experienced and qualified coaches. We hope that the skills learned in these classes will inspire a lifelong passion for the sport. Roped climbing skills such as confidence, co-operation and problem-solving bring benefits to all areas of life.

Classes run during term time and can be block booked in terms. 8-11yrs can book straight onto term time classes without the need for any prior experience, while 12-15yrs must first complete a Youth Beginners Course (4hrs split over 2 sessions). 


The NICAS syllabus teaches climbers about the wider sport and is perfect for supporting evidence for awards such as DofE. DofE assessor goal setting sessions must be booked in advance via the TCA Office. We charge £20 for a TCA instructor to act as a DofE assessor. Email:
