Posted by James McHaffie on 14/11/2018

On 13-14 April there will be a weekend of highly subsidised training courses for young people who are interested in getting into coaching climbing. The coach education weekend will be held at the Beacon Climbing centre in North Wales.

Ian Dunn & Katherine Schirrmacher will deliver a FUNDAMENTALS 1 on the Saturday and a FOUNDATION COACH TRAINING on the Sunday. Young people can sign up for either both the days or just 1 day. Each day will cost just £25 which will cover the cost of the course, the registration fee and lunch. Emma Twyford will also be on hand to deliver an inspiring climbing talk on the Saturday evening.

You will need to arrange your own accommodation and breakfast.
