Join Shauna Coxsey at this year's Coaching Symposium

BMC Ambassador Shauna Coxsey will be joining a team of coaches presenting at this year's BMC Coaching Symposium. Join us on September 13 & 14 to learn a host of new skills and take your coaching to the next level! This event is now fully booked, sorry!

It's more than two years since the last coaching symposium and much has changed. The demand for coaching and coach education has increased, Mountain Training has launched a new national coaching scheme and the BMC has greatly increased the coaching for talented young climbers, with thirty-seven regional and national academies planned for 2014/15.

We're also seeing ever increasing numbers at our climbing competitions. Over 800 children entered the BMC rounds of the 2014 Youth Climbing Series, our highest turnout ever.

To educate coaches working with talented young climbers, the theme for this year's coaching symposium is supporting the talent pathway, this being the coaching that a talented young climber receives.

This coaching could be at a climbing wall performance club, one-to-one coaching or at one of the BMC academies, for example.

Whilst much climbing coaching is focused around competitions and predominantly delivered at walls, the coaching a child receives should also help them excel in whatever styles of climbing they ultimately choose to pursue, be that competitions, rock climbing, ice climbing or alpinism. 

Run over two days, the coaching symposium will be at Plas y Brenin on Saturday 13 with a mixture of lectures and practicals, and at The Beacon Climbing Centre in Caernarfon on Sunday 14 and predominantly practical in nature.

You can download the symposium program, read the speaker's biographies and book online to secure your place. Prices start from £60 for BMC members.

BOOKINGS NOW CLOSED: SYMPOSIUM FULLY BOOKED
