Offering our support

It has been great fun to meet so many people who are so enthusiastic about climbing. One thing we have noticed, is that behind any club or group, there is always at least one really keen adult or parent helping with the running of the group. We would like to offer our support to these people, in order to help make their climbing programmes as best as they can be.

Working with schools

The picture above is from a day that our Regional Development Officers ran for Charleston Academy. Charleston Academy is a school in Inverness that have an active climbing club and were interested in becoming a ClimbScotland partner. We disscussed how we could help support the club and it was decided that some athlete profiling and some competition preperation would be of most use for the students. We work with schools all over Scotland so if you know one that could do with our help then spread the word!

Gairloch fun climbing competition

Gairloch volunteers Gairloch certainly has the demand for climbing and we look forward to helping support them however we can. After seeing how many volunteers turned up and how well they took to running the comp, this is something they will be able to now go ahead and do themselves and hopefully it will become a regular event!

The next step

Our most recent event, which ClimbScotland supported. Two keen locals Jim and Paul had talked about a comp event and after seeing the very successful Speyside comp they got in touch with our Regional Development Officers. We can tailor our support to your aims and needs, so why not give us a call or drop us an email and talk to one of the ClimbScotland team about how we can work together.
