competition Coaching

"I am because of who we all are"

Our Competition Team is for both Junior and Senior athletes competing at a National or International level. We provide training plans alongside coached team practice taking place across multiple climbing centres, to balance personal needs with team spirit. We take pride in our holistic approach to training, encompassing sports psychology, nutrition, injury prevention, physical training, and technical proficiency. We have successfully taken climbers from their first year climbing to World Championships, and will continue to do so into the future.


Team Practice &Training Plans

Each of our athletes receive training plans specific to their goals, competition schedule, and personal development. Their plans are completed both remotely and in team practice times.


Strength & Conditioning

Our strength and conditioning programme is overseen by Kieran Burke of Gwalia Performance. He plans and monitors our training remotely as well as running group sessions at Sheffield Hallam.

Strength and conditioning training is included in all of our team packages, and integrated into our team practice.



Our resident mobility guru Dan Kyte produces mobility assessments and plans for all of our athletes. He has a systematic and climbing focused approach, working on strength through extreme ranges.


Competition Support

We provide coach support at all National Lead and Bouldering Competitions, 4 Nations Lead and Bouldering (not Ireland), and Youth Climbing Series.

We also provide remote support and limited in person support to international competeitions.


Support Network

We consult and work closely with experts in Physiotherapy, Sports Psychology, and Nutrition to provide a support network for our athletes. We can provide or refer athletes to both group and individual services.
