This is a short film in which parents talk about the rewards and challenges of being the parent of an elite young climber.
For many young people, and their parents, being selected for one of the GB junior teams may be one of their aspirations; and being selected to climb for your country will almost certainly be the culmination of years of hard work to reach the required standard.
All GB Junior Team members and their parents will know that selection is also the beginning of a new set of challenges.
This short film sets out some of the challenges that families have encountered once a family member has been selected for one of the GB junior teams.
