PINNACLE YOUTH SQUAD
Training sessions for the Pinnacle Youth Team run weekly on Sundays 4pm to 6pm.
The Pinnacle Squad is a youth team chosen to represent the centre in bouldering and climbing competitions throughout the country. They are chosen because of their great commitment to the sport and motivation to train hard with the main goal of improving.
Entry to the team is in a strictly invite-only manner; youths who are seen to have potential will be approached by Jordon, our Squad Coach. While parents are welcome to put their child forward for the team, we may require an increase of their climbing grade before they join team sessions. On the same basis, under certain circumstances we may ask current members of Squad to leave the team sessions until either grade or behaviour has been improved.
To allow these sessions to be delivered with as little cost to the Squad member as possible, and to allow the climbers to get the most out of their training sessions as possible, we request that where possible parents attend these sessions as a belayer. Parents will not be charged for belaying their child either at training sessions, or at any time when belaying a member of the Squad.
Squad members are required to be on a Direct Debit pass, which costs £47.50 per month and includes, weekly team coaching, child entry to the wall, adult belay-only entry to the wall and kit hire for parents if necessary. Squad members also receive discounts on coaching and equipment.
For more information, or to enquire about entry to the team, please contact us directly. Please speak to either Rich (Squad Coach), Tom or Mikey (Centre Managers).
