The ClimbScotland squad system is an opportunity for us to provide targeted support to young climbers across Scotland who have shown themselves to have performance potential and are driven to pursue their own climbing progression.

As part of this the system both the Development Squad and the National Squad are key. Through these Squads we aim to build up young climbers by:

  • Building a community
  • Facilitating relevant preparation
  • Providing holistic climbing opportunities
  • Contributing to appropriate development

All members of the Development and National squads are offered the opportunity to attend a series of weekend ClimbScotland coaching academies and RealRock sessions to help them develop their technique, physical training, psychology and practice of climbing, along with other support measures.
