What is involved in a typical class?

On commencement of the course, students are divided into groups of eight and assigned an Instructor. These groups remain consistent throughout the course to encourage team building, communication and familiarity among peers and climbing styles.

We start each class with a light warm-up and stretching, introduction to course content and a recap of previous material.  Each session introduces the class to new ideas and concepts and allows exploration of these concepts with exercises and tactics.

Students are given the opportunity to climb each week to practise the prescribed skills and outcomes.  On course completion students are presented a Certficate of Attainment for their efforts. We encourage graduates to continue their climbing practice and offer discounts on entry valid for the remainder of the year.

School administrators are provided with course assessment results and feedback is available on individual and group performance. To book call us on 9248 7035.
