NICAS

The National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme (NICAS)

UNDER 18
CLIMBING AWARDS

We offer 4 levels of this fantastic program that will take a child from beginner all the way to being able to lead climb! 

The time taken for each level is completely flexible and depends on your child’s individual progress, there is no fixed path and therefore we charge on a term (12 weeks) by term basis.

To enter in to the NICAS scheme, your child will need to be a minimum age of 7.
