The Station Academy (12+)
We are reopening on Wednesday the 2nd of December with our Academy restarting on Thursday the 3rd at the time listed below. From then on, all Academy sessions will run as normal.
Thanks and see you soon.
The Climbing Station Team
Our Academy club back! From Thursday 13th August, our instructor lead where teenagers have the opportunity to boulder is returning. Only children aged 12 – 17 will be able to participate in this group. For those that are new to this, our academy is a 90 minute bouldering only session where the climbers get to boulder under the supervision of one our instructors. The kids will be pushed to try their best on difficult climbs to get the most out of the session whilst also remaining as safe as possible. No experience is needed to join, the session caters to those with years of experience and none at all.
Booking is Essential. This is now done through our website by going to the “Book Now & Covid policies” tab on the menu and selecting the Academy option.
Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, there has been a couple of changes to how we’ll be running these sessions. Most notably is the reduced number per session. We have capped each Academy session to 6 climbers, this is due to us now having a maximum capacity in the climbing area (which is 36). Additionally, face masks will need to be worn by all attendees in café area and the bathrooms. The full list of our COVID-19 policies can be found HERE.
We offer The NIBAS (National Indoor Bouldering Award Scheme) levels 1-3. Each week we work on essential climbing skills and techniques, developing the children’s agility, balance and coordination through climbing. Many kids who do not enjoy traditional team sports find their passion for climbing.
NIBAS is a great way to track your progress through your climbing career. You will complete each level and be awarded a certificate upon completion of each.
