Become a NICAS Wild Climbers centre

Already running NICAS Climbing or NICAS Bouldering? Looking for new ideas to keep your under-7s entertained?

NICAS Wild Climbers offers climbing skills for ages 3+. It's a game orientated programme that introduces young climbers safely into the indoor climbing environment, developing their awareness of climbing movements, improving confidence, and most of all having LOADS of fun! Wild Climbers is designed to be accessible for all, and its resources encourage inclusivity for all participants, including climbers with additional needs.

If your centre has been accredited for NICAS Climbing or NICAS Bouldering, you should already meet our minimum requirements. The next step is to book a NICAS Wild Climbers induction to get your coaching team up to speed. We offer a 2-hour online induction, and our next dates are:
  • Monday 17 July: 6.00pm to 8.00pm
  • Monday 24 July: 1.00pm to 3.00pm

If you prefer, we can arrange a bespoke workshop at your centre, which includes not only the induction but also incorporates extra topics such as gamification, managing challenging behaviour, and adapting sessions to individual needs. Our on-site workshops usually run from 10.00am to 4.00pm for up to 9 participants and cost £250+VAT. Please contact us to discuss your requirements and book an available date.

Once you've booked your Wild Climbers induction or workshop, you can then order the Wild Climbers logbooks that will support your sessions. These 28-page logbooks are chock full of stickers, and arrive with six skill certificates, which should bring some huge smiles to your little climbers. Once your coaching team have had their inductions and you've received your logbooks, you're good to go Wild!
