Youth Climbing Series Coaching Event

We will be hosting a coaching session for the BMC Youth Climbing Series entrants on Saturday 20th January. This is a great opportunity for all youth climbers who are entering the BMC YCS 2018.

The cost of this event is general entry only (£7.00) and all participants must be registered with the Depot prior to booking – see link to waiver below.

This is an open session for all abilities, the one condition is you are taking part in the BMC YCS.

The main aim of the day will be to go through some competition tactics, looking at route reading, hold identification, cruxes, dynamic movement, mental control and preparing competitors for the BMC YCS.


There will be 3 coaches running the sessions and GB team member Tara Hayes will also be there to talk through taking part in the Youth Series and what competitors can expect. Tara started her competition career in the BMC YCS and now represents GB and international competitions all over the world. The day will be run by three experienced coaches, Iain McKenzie (Tara’s former coach), and two Birmingham Depot Coaches, Harry and James.

The day will run from 11:00 to 15:30 and spaces are limited to only 24, so it is a first come first serve.   

Following the event between 18:00 and 20:00 the Depot is hosting the Reel Rock tour and tickets are available for £7.00 for under 18’s and £10.00 for an adult, more information and the trailer is available here:
