For all climbing coaches, this workshop is delivered by the BMC, Plas y Brenin, Mountaineering Ireland and the Mountaineering Council of Scotland. This workshop forms part of the training pathway for Mountain Training's Assistant Climbing Coach award.

The FUNdamentals has a proven track record over the last 10 years of providing way in excess of 500 grass roots aspiring coaches, instructors and climbers with the skills to improve how to teach coaching movement to young people.  It’s success is in it’s simplicity.  You can’t fail but take something away to apply to your job.

The FUNdamentals is stage one of the Long Term Participant Development (LTPD) model, which has been applied to many sports and refers to the optimal training opportunities within a child’s development.  FUNdamentals 1 not only looks at the fundamental sport specific skills of climbing but also focuses on how to develop the wider skills of agility, balance and co-ordination.

The learning outcomes for the Fundamentals 1 day are that you will be able to:

  1. Describe the essential principles of the LTPD model
  2. Demonstrate and explain basic coaching pedagogy
  3. Structure an appropriate warm up
  4. Explain, demonstrate and evaluate key climbing movement principles
  5. Identify and apply appropriate activities to develop the FUNdamentals of climbing movement

Please note you will need the following equipment on the day; harness, belay device, climbing shoes. Tablets and smartphones may be useful for notes and filming purposes.
