IRISH YOUTH SQUAD 2023 - Application

The Irish Youth Squad was founded in 2022 under Mountaineering Ireland to develop athletes for potential selection to the Irish Climbing Team, and to support the growth of performance climbing in Ireland. We have had a very successful first year, with 9 out of 12 athletes qualifying for the Youth Climbing Series Grand Finals in Swindon, and podiums in various other competitions. 

We would now like to open up applications for the Irish Youth Squad to all youth climbers in Ireland. The link for the application form and further information is below:

Successful applicants will have to attend all of the squad sessions for 2023, regularly participate in competitions, and perform their own training throughout the year. We will be aiming for 8 squad sessions, spread throughout the year to balance with the competition calendar. We are looking for applicants that will be competing in Juniors, Youth A, B, and C for the year 2023.

Applications are due on 20th January 2023, with selection being made for sessions to begin at the start of February. Any questions about the Irish Youth Squad or the application process can be directed to the Head Coach, Niamh Kavanagh (0863096197,
