Junior Climbing Club for 8 to 18s

Running on week-day evenings and weekend mornings during term time, the Junior Climbing Club is a lively & fun place to learn to climb, with great opportunities to be performance coached to new heights.

Junior Climbing Club at Southampton Climbing Wall

Each junior climber is supported to their individual goals, and our experienced instructors will create activities and coaching that brings the group together in a fun, sociable and safe environment.

To help manage their progression and development, junior climbers work through NICAS (National Indoor Climbing Achievement Scheme) to Level 2. This is also the standard requirement to climb at any other climbing wall in the UK during public time. This NICAS programme is put in place for individual members upon request and is an additional one-off cost of £5; please ask at the time of booking or speak with your instructor at the wall for more information.
