Coaching Young Climbers - LTAD

Coaching Young Climbers - LTAD

This course covers the theory and practice behind the Long-term development of young climbers.

This workshop looks at the Long Term Development of Young Climbers, a thorny issue, and one that has slowly been addressed by the BMC Fundamentals Course. This course focus's on what to coach and when, as well as looking much more comprehensively at developing young competition climbers through the use of mental skills training.

Again if you work in a local wall that runs an after school climbing club, or you are a parent that would like to know more to help you coach your own children then this course will help you better understand the needs and considerations need to make when 'coaching' a young person.
