// BB YOUTH SQUAD //

Meet the rock stars of tomorrow

Over the past few years our youth squad has progressed hugely. In the first days most of the squad members were keen but inexperienced climbers, entering competitions for the first time. These days, Team BB is a force to be reckoned with on the local and national competition circuit, and we have seen members move on to the national GB squad! Our squad is of mixed ages with a focus on fun, commitment and potential for the future. Team members are expected to train twice a week with the squad as well as some additional independent training, and make at least 4 of the 5 Blokfest competitions over the season around the South East.

We are also proud to sponsor a couple of former youth squad members who have gone on to become successful competitors on the national stage, we're excited to see how far they can go.

Competitions

The primary focus of the squad is competing in the year's Blokfest competition series. A Boulder Brighton instructor will be at each Blokfest event and the BMC Youth Open competitions to organise and coach the team, but parents will still be needed to help supervise the competitors. Dates will be released as soon as they are available.

Youth Squad costs and commitments

Youth Squad membership costs £55 per month and includes unlimited entry to the centre, a squad t-shirt, twice weekly coaching and support at competitions. Ideally we are looking for squad members to climb three or more times each week, although care should be taken with the form of those sessions to avoid injury and we will advise on how to best approach them.

Trips outside BB

To further broaden the skills of our squad we will run some outdoor bouldering trips. The weather is best right after the competition season ends so we will aim to run these from April on. I would also like to visit some of the other walls around us and we will replace some of our Saturday training sessions with visits to other centres.
