Title: Talent Development Workshops
Date: 22-08-2013
System Date: 22-08-2013

Beginning this September Mountaineering Ireland will provide Talent Development Workshops for young climbers keen to improve their climbing skills.

Mountaineering Ireland has bought together a pool of experienced climbers and coaches to deliver the Talent Development Workshops. These climbers and coaches bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with and inspire young climbers to reach new heights!

Coaching will be delivered in approximately a 1:8 ratio; for every eight young climbers there will be one coach. This will ensure a high level of personal attention for each participant.

The Talent Development Workshops are open to any keen young climber aged approximately 8 to 18 years of age. The Talent Development Workshops are not suitable for beginner climbers. It is advisable that any young climber participating in the Talent Development Workshops should already have a reasonable amount of climbing experience.

The workshops will run from 11:30 to 4:30. Appropriate time will be given for breaks depending on the age and ability of the participant. Parents are not required to remain at the climbing wall for the duration of the workshop.

The cost is €20 per participant per workshop, this includes entry to the climbing wall, coaching and administration. Equipment rental is not included in the price. A €5 registration charge may be required if the participant is not already a registered user of the climbing wall.
