The Mothership is a National Indoor Bouldering Award Scheme (NIBAS) Primary Centre. All our instructors hold Mountain Training qualifications and have an enhanced DBS check.

For those aged 8-16yrs, our Boulder Club is a great way for young people to start climbing. 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.

If your child is 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.

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

 

NIBAS SESSIONS POSTPONED UNTIL 2021

It’s with regret that we have decided to postpone the reintroduction of our NIBAS sessions at The Mothership until 2021. We understand that this will cause huge disappointment to our youth climbers and their parents, but the latest COVID-19 restrictions and our limited operating capacity means it’s not possible to deliver the sessions to the standard that is expected from the participants and the Association of British Climbing Walls Training Trust.

We can offer youth roped climbing sessions at The Church from term 2. These can be booked by clicking here!
