NICAS Boulder Club (8-16s)

NICAS Boulder Club is a great way for young people to start climbing. NICAS is the National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme.

Boulder club starts with safe and simple bouldering and moves all the way up to high-performance competition 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.

Structured development

NICAS is the perfect structure to lead young boulderers as they develop but is also great for DofE and other awards. The Mothership is a National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme (NICAS) Primary Centre. All our instructors hold Mountain Training qualifications and have an enhanced DBS check.

 

Please note: 16 & 17yrs can join as a TCA member and boulder (only) independently. They just need to watch a safety video and complete an online registration form. Click here!
