Junior Crew Climbing Clubs
To access our clubs everyone must join as a Junior Crew Member
These fun interactive sessions are built on the fundamentals of climbing and aim to give the young person the best start in this sport but also to help establish skills that are relevant to other areas of their lives.
During the weekly sessions the content includes playing games that help to develop and increase balance, spacial awareness, hand, foot and eye coordination to name just a few physical benefits. Climbing is also an activity proven to help in concentration and focus.
Members are also introduced to a rope system in which they can interact and be a part of. This gives them the opportunity to learn how to trust and become responsible for themselves and others through team work and respect. As they progress they begin to demonstrate an awareness of safety and how to assess risk. These are all qualities that are essential for their futures.
Please note, anyone who is 4 year old must be in full time education to join these clubs.
For 8 years and older our Junior Crew Members literally start learning the ropes!
By focussing on how to belay and be responsible for another climber, as well as learning about the equipment of harnesses, helmets and ropes our climbers learn about taking responsibility and working within a safe and supportive environment.
The fundamentals of climbing still forms an integral part of these clubs and focus is also given to continual development their movement skills through a series of engaging and challenging tasks.
Members are also given the opportunity to experience our Bouldering Wall and Roped Climbing in our Tower. Climbing shoes are needed at this level and we have a special discount rate on shoe hire at just £1 per session.
For 13 years and over who can already belay and are competent on a Bouldering Wall.
Comprehensive climbing techniques are included within this programme and each climber is developed on an individual basis according to their needs.
Areas of focus are placed within body movement coaching through a variety of tasks and challenges.
If appropriate for the group then Lead Climbing may also be built into the programme of activity.
Individual training programmes can be devised alongside the club programme if required or requested to further enhance a climbers development.
Sam was a member of the Welsh team in the recent UK BMC youth climbing finals 2019, where he finished 7th overall and the highest placed Welsh Climber in Age Category D.
Sam's very first climbing experience was at Prom Extra with Andy on VersaWall and thoroughly enjoying his time on the wall he joined the climbing clubs at Llandudno Junction Leisure Centre back in 2013. Showing a natural flare for climbing Sam progressed very quickly under Andy's coaching and outgrew what Junction Wall was able to offer. Encouraged to pursue his climbing passion and develop his skills further Sam successfully joined the North Wales Climbing Academy and has been actively involved ever since. You will find Sam training at the Boathouse from time to time on both the bouldering and lead walls.
