National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme logo

National Indoor Climbing Award Schemes (NICAS) Coming September 2023

Our schemes, which are the National Indoor Climbing Award Schemes (NICAS®) are an introduction to climbing and provide a gateway to learning more and developing a love for the sport.

The key aim is to provide a safe introduction to climbing for anyone aged 7 years and up on artificial climbing structures (e.g. indoor climbing walls). Those who progress through to the higher levels also start to look wider and learn more about the history, ethics and styles of both indoor and outdoor climbing. The nationally-recognised scheme helps to standardise the teaching and coaching of climbing in a structured manner, whilst providing lots of fun too.

To register for our waiting list please email with your child's name, age and climbing experience.

We will then be in touch with more information when we are ready to start accepting climbers onto the courses.
