NIBAS Level 1

Climb with us for 4 or 5 weeks and achieve NIBAS Level 1**

The Weedon Project is proud to be a NIBAS awarding centre, and this summer we are very excited to offer a dedicated NIBAS level 1 course. Designed to teach the basics of bouldering; from gym safety and route reading, to footwork and technique; these 1.5hour sessions are lead and supported by our coaching team. The course can even be used towards your child’s Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh award.

NIBAS is the UK’s most recognised climbing award scheme – you can find out more here. The course is suitable for children from age 7+ (There is no upper age limit!). To achieve NIBAS Level 1, your child will need to complete a minimum of 6 hours of coached climbing, and be able to demonstrate bouldering progression and an understanding of the sport. **Our coaching team will do their utmost to encourage and support every child. We understand that children learn at different rates and therefore it may be that they will require some additional coaching.

*£95 per child for the full 5 week course. NIBAS registration & shoe hire is included.
*£18 per session PAYG + £7.50 NIBAS registration. Shoe hire is included.

Family Climb Time

We are super excited to be offering Family Climb sessions again this summer! These one hour sessions are a great opportunity to experience the fun and challenge of climbing alongside your children. Our coaches will be there to supervise and offer assistance, and at the end of the session adults will be signed off as both competent to climb, and to supervise. You will therefore be able to stay and climb for as long as you like that day, and/or come back to climb (with or without the kids) at a later date.**

*£25 for a family of 3 (1 adult & 2 children). Shoe hire is included.
**Annual registration fee of £3 per person will apply should you wish to continue climbing after the session.
