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.
