This course will run through Red and Yellow Blocks and so students choosing this course must take both.

Let's develop climbing skills!

Mondays: Top rope climbing at the YMCA Adventure Centre! An instructor will teach us belaying and climbing skills in the first session, and then we'll develop into seasoned veteran climbers in subsequent sessions.

Tuesdays: We'll do some exercising (strength, flexibility, balance), yoga, general fitness stuff, and watch rock climbing films! We'll watch a mix of competition climbing and outdoor adventure films from the rock climbing world that is sure to inspire. We'll discuss the moves and styles of climbing depicted in these films to learn some better technique we can use ourselves. This is also an opportunity to rest those fingers and forearms between climbing sessions.

Thursdays: Bouldering at Uprising! Please note that Uprising requires a ratio of 1 adult to 2 children for students under 13 years, so we will most certainly need parent volunteers to come with us and have fun on Thursdays from 1pm-3pm. Email me at zack.williams@aotawhiti.school.nz if you are parent who's keen to come along. You'll get to climb!

There is a cost of approx. $35/week (estimate - to be confirmed) to participate.
