The GB National Development Squad was established in 2017 providing a pathway for talented young climbers to propel from national to international competition and the wider climbing world.

The aim of the GB National Development Squad is to develop climbers on the talent pathway into well-rounded athletes and young people equipped to take on international competition and the wider world of rock climbing with all the elements it entails whilst ensuring a long term enjoyment and participation within the sport. 
 
As published in March the GB National Development Squad selection and profiling event is going to be held on 9 & 10 November 2019 at The Depot and Awesome Walls in Sheffield.

If you are are an athlete who has competed internationally and achieved selection criteria or have achieved the criteria through the National Rankings System you will still need to attend the event for profiling and register below.

If you are an athlete who is an existing squad member or an athlete who has achieved a top five result in one of the listed national competitions, but have not yet achieved the squad selelction criteria you can register for the event here.

If you are an athlete who has achieved the selection criteria prior to the event and cannot climb for profiling purposes due to an injury - please contact lucinda@thebmc.co.uk

Please note, deadline for registration is 5pm on Monday 4 November 2019. It is the athletes' or parents' responsibility to ensure they meet the registration deadline. Registration to the profiling and selection event will not be accepted after the deadline.
