The BMC is looking for dedicated and committed coaches from a variety of backgrounds to form a dynamic team to support our young athletes. Could this be you?

Can you help to deliver on the GB National Development Squad programme for 2019? In addition to this the BMC is looking to build the volunteer coaching team to provide support at GB international events for both the juniors and seniors.
 
The closing date for these roles is Tuesday 2 October 2018 at 9.00 am.

Some background
 
Since the successful vote at AGM, the BMC was able to allocate funding to support its talent development strategy. This resulted in two Talent Development Co-ordinators being successfully recruited and are now in post.
 
The new co-ordinators have a busy programme to deliver the BMC Talent development strategy with an exciting new coach education programme – details of which will follow in the forthcoming weeks. 
 
They are also tasked with organising and delivering the GB National Development Squad programme for 2019.
 
The GB National Development Squad was established in 2017 providing a pathway for talented young climbers to bridge the gap between regional and national competition and international competition. The coming together of talented climbers also provided the opportunity to support their development as climbers and young people and was a chance to give them exposure to the wider climbing community.
 
The BMC Talent Development Pathway (which the GB National Development Squad is a part of) is an athlete centred pathway to develop the longer term, personal and athletic development of our young athletes.
 
The GB National Development Squad also provides the pool of climbers from which the GB Youth and Junior Climbing Team is formed for international youth competitions.

The GB Climbing Team is supported by the BMC, Mountaineering ScotlandClif BarDuco and Rock Over Climbing.

 
The GB Paraclimbing Team is supported by Oakwood Climbing Centre and Quay Climbing Centre. The GB Ice Climbing Team is supported by Montane. Many UK walls also support the British Climbing Team through free or subsidised entry.
