For all climbing coaches, this workshop is delivered by the BMC and the MCofS. This workshop forms part of the training pathway for Mountain Training's Climbing Coach award.
Building on the success of the FUNdamentals of Climbing 1 and in response to the demand from coaches and instructors, the BMC launched this second workshop in 2010.
The FUNdamentals is stage one of the Long Term Participant Development (LTPD) model, which has been applied to many sports and refers to optimal training opportunities within a child’s development. FUNdamentals 2 looks in greater detail at the sport specific requirements of climbing movement. Without a good grounding in technique a climber can never reach their potential.
You need to have attended the FUNdamentals of Climbing 1 workshop to attend this second workshop.
The learning outcomes for the Fundamentals 2 Workshop are that you will be able to:
Explain, demonstrate and evaluate key climbing movement principles
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.

As the climbing walls, crags and mountains start to open, we wanted to say thanks to every BMC member who supported us through the Coronavirus crisis.
From weekly Facebook Lives and GB Climbing home training videos, to our access team working to re-open the crags and fight for your mountain access, we couldn’t have made it without you.
