Climbing Classes for 4 to 7 Year Olds
Choosing the right sport for your child is important – it will help shape them physically, as well as help them socially as they grow and develop into adults. The right sport will always assist to develop a child’s sportsmanship, values, empathy, goal setting skills, teamwork and communication.
Rock Climbing is not only a fantastic physical sport, but is one that challenges individual ability and perceptions of what is achievable. It also improves problem solving abilities and improves goal setting and achievement, teamwork and communication skills.
Our 4 – 7 year old ‘Pebbles’ Kids Club is a great introduction to the skills and techniques of climbing and is a great starter course prior to entry to the Kids Club and Youth Squad programs.
Pebbles has been specifically written and designed for students too young to commence Kids Club and is focused on exposing participants to different aspects of climbing in a safe and fun environment.
Due to the age of students, less emphasis will be placed on tangible or structured progression, instead the focus will be on student participation and enjoyment. Students will be guided through different tasks, activities and games centred on rock climbing skills.
The course operates on a Monday afternoon, from 4pm – 5.30pm for the duration of 5 weeks consecutively with the option to extend the second 5 week block during the term
