We run Kids Club on Saturday mornings from ten to twelve. Individual sessions cost €12. We then also run School of Rock (NICAS) which is more of an ongoing climbing course for the kids at various times on Saturdays depending on the level they’re at. Individual sessions cost €16 plus a one off fee for NICAS booklet and registration (Level 1+ 2 is €8 and Level 3-5 is €15).
The National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme (NICAS) is designed to promote climbing development and accredit individual achievement on artificial climbing structures. It can be used as a starting point for people wishing to take up climbing and mountaineering.
We know that it takes more than just strength to overcome the hardest challenges on our climbing walls. To be a good climber also requires skill and brain power.
