Whether climbing or coaching indoors, on the crags, or in the Alps our workshops cover a range of themes that will broaden your knowledge and improve your coaching.

FUNdamentals of Climbing - Good technique and movement are the bedrock of climbing. These three workshops progressively explore climbing movement.

Coaching Children - Learn how to maximize the impact of your coaching sessions where young climbers are motivated to learn through fun, enjoyment and challenge.

Physical Training - Two workshops that progressively explore the principles of physical training and the design of periodised training plans.

Route Setting - Routes and problems have a positive impact upon a climber's development when set well. Anyone involved in coaching climbing will benefit from this very practical workshop.

If planning a career in coaching, the FUNdamentals and Physical Training workshops are part of Mountain Training's coaching scheme. 

BMC members benefit from more than a 15% discount on workshop cost. If you’re not a member then take advantage of our half-price membership offer and join the BMC for a less than £16!

Do you recommend doing all 3 workshops in a block, on consecutive days, or is it advisable to leave some time between each one?
16) Jon Garside (author comment)
28/08/2013
Some people like to do the workshops on three consecutive days; others like a gap between each one. I think both approaches have pros and cons, which is why we deliver them in these two different ways. I do not think you would be overwhelmed if you did them on consecutive days.

I am wondering why so few workshops run during the weekends? I would like to progress through the scheme before Christmas but, like most people, work commitments often don't allow for mid week courses. Perhaps, offering several more weekend options might increase participation? I am aware that this may dilute the numbers of people per course but maybe by increasing weekend courses and reducing midweek courses the numbers will remain constant?
Thanks, Simon

We will look to have more weekend dates in 2014.

Bristol has proved very popular this year and with workshops running there in March, June and September. We do not currently have plans for more there this year.

As outlined in the webform, you can only book on courses if there are still places left. If a course is full, like the one in Manchester, then it will not come up in the drop-down menu.

Hi, yes there are places on the FUNdamentals 1 & 2 courses. You should be able to book on them now via webforms. The Physical Training workshop at the Quay this weekend has been cancelled due to no bookings being made on it.

Why can't there be any courses at a Weekend?

I was really disappointed that the PyB course at a weekend was cancelled. I can't attend any weekday course due to the nature of my work.

Why no dates in the Southeast? Nearest one is 2.5hrs from me in Sussex. Such a shame as I've wanted to do the course for ages.

We are doing a workshop in the south-east tomorrow! In Maidstone.

We also did a workshop there in December, sorry that you maybe missed that.

Where is your nearest wall in the south east?

Hi

As noted in my previous two posts (which people seem to have trouble reading) Mountaineering Scotland manages the delivery of FUNdas and other coach education workshops in Scotland. I suggest contacting them to see when their courses are running.

We have workshops in Sunderland, Liverpool, Sheffield and Kendal this year. Regarding other locations in the north of England, then please get in touch with us about that.
