  • Climbing coaching staff training

    18th February 2017

    The tutorial team spent a fun and informative day at Bendrigg Lodge on the 16th February with John Kettle.  John is a climbing coach and had been tasked with sharing ideas about how we could improve children’s movement on rock.  The day was mainly practical with a few theory inputs and we have all come away with lots of ideas about how we can help children gain more from their climbing sessions.  Some of the ideas should also feed into other sessions we run.
