Climbing Coaching has many facets and your decision about coaching should take into account your objectives, your preference in terms of bouldering vs lead climbing, are you a beginner, looking to improve your climbing a lttle or wanting to join the ranks of our elite competition climbers.
Coaching is generally run by the clubs and it would be wise to enquire about the options open to you or your child.
For young ones starting to climb it is a good idea to start with some coaching. Whether or not they choose to progress to more advanced classes or just to climb for fun, it is best to learn good technique right from the start. The safety issues cannot be overstated either. Learn the right way from the start.
