ROPED CLIMBING CLASSES

NICAS (8-16s)

NICAS is the National Indoor Climbing Award Schemes. Our NICAS sessions are roped climbing classes for 8-16yrs. Participants will work through a syllabus to develop climbing technique whilst progressing through grades, growing in confidence and making friends!

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.

 

Structured development

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

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.
