Currently at capacity

We are currently at capacity in our performance squads with no plans for recruitment or trials in the near future. With that said, please do speak with our coaching team if you would like guidance on how to work with your child to progress their climbing.

What is the Performance Squad?

The Boulder Shack Performance Squad is open to junior climbers aged 6 – 18 years who: have moderate ability for their age; are personally motivated to develop; and have a keen and mature attitude to participate in athletic training for climbing.

These teams of enthusiastic young climbers train hard and compete with good spirit. The competitions we train for give these climbers a clear purpose and goals for which to aim for. The Squad provides these young athletes with an opportunity to climb regularly at various walls, develop a high-level of techniques and compete in national competitions.
