A National Climbing Award Scheme for anyone aged 7 or above

If your child is looking to progress into climbing then The National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme is for them.

NICAS is the only nationally recognised award scheme that introduces new climbers to climbing on indoor walls. The scheme focuses on making young climbers, getting them hooked for life, and giving them the tools to make this happen. Working through skill development, all safety aspects as well as climbing ability, the 5 awarding levels have the perfect progression for all young climbers aged 7 and above. For more details on NICAS visit www.nicas.co.uk

Our courses are run in two age brackets under each level. 7-11 year olds, are called Rock-Its, & 11-17 year olds are known as Hang Time, this means your kids are groups with children of similar age ability making the learning and development experience all the easier, and more importantly more fun!
