Ages 8-16

White Angles

The Prop Store is a National Indoor Climbing Award Schemes (NICAS) Centre. All our instructors hold Mountain Training qualifications and have an enhanced DBS check.

Our NICAS climbing sessions are for climbers aged 8-16yrs, who want to focus on roped climbing. Sessions run during term time and can be booked in termly blocks or single sessions once the block has started. 8-11yrs can book straight onto NICAS Level 1 classes without the need for any prior experience. Candidates must be registered with NICAS which costs £7.50 and includes a logbook. If you’re new to TCA, you’ll need to complete an Under 18 Supervised form for your youngster. Complete Form A online in advance and make things more efficient when you arrive.

NICAS is the perfect structure to lead young climbers as they develop but is also great for DofE and other awards.

If your child would like to attend Boulder Club – we run this at The Newsroom in Kinning Park.

PLEASE NOTE: 16-17 year olds can join as a TCA member and climb independently. They just need to watch a safety video and complete an online registration form.
