If you were unsuccessful this year we hope that you will continue to compete and enjoy your climbing. There are a number of international open events which you can enter as an individual and if you are wanting to experience international competition this would be a great place to gain more experience. The events will be listed when they are confirmed as either ‘open’ or ‘promo events’ on the IFSC Website here.

If you would like feedback on your performance at the selection event please email Lucinda@thebmc.co.uk before Friday 23 November 2018.

For those athletes who were successful in achieving selection, the BMC will be in touch in the forthcoming weeks with arrangements for the training events next year, once they have been confirmed.
