Update on Classes for the remainder of 2022
Unfortunately we’re still unable to run any form of classes or supervised sessions at this time.
The protracted restrictions through covid disrupted our ability to train enough coaches to meet the huge demand.
We’re working on it so please bear with us and check back here for updates towards the end of the year.
We want to make sure when we reintroduce classes it’s sustainable and that we can ensure they’re delivered to the high standard our climbers are used to.
Thank you for your continued understanding.
Rainbow Rocket Team
Spring Term 2020
We run weekly lasses for 8-17 year-olds during term-time. Classes separated into two age groups and commitment is for the whole term.
Experienced climbers: If you are interested in joining (and there are spaces available) but haven’t climbed at Rainbow Rocket before you will need to go through the registration process first, and then book a prep-session before joining the classes.
New Climbers: If you are interested in joining (and there are spaces available) but don’t have much or any bouldering experience, go through the registration process first, and then book an induction, expressing interest in the classes.
Pre-booking is essential. Please call or visit reception.
The focus in these sessions is on having fun. Warming-up and climbing games are used to develop solid climbing technique and to keep juniors engaged. During every class they will be trained in the good practices of bouldering safety and climbing wall etiquette.
Junior class timetable:
- Monday 18:00-19:00
- Tuesday 16:30-17:30
- Thursday 16:30-17:30
- Saturday 10:20-11:20.
£140* for 12 sessions.
The focus of these sessions is on improving climbing skills and technique. Participants will be trained on how to climb in a range of styles. The longer class time allows for more emphasis on warming-up, conditioning and technique drills whilst still fitting in games and challenges. Over 14s will work towards taking the Unsupervised Assessment which allows them to climb any time on their own.
Teen class timetable:
- Wednesday 17:00-18:30
- Friday 17:00-18:30
- Saturday 11:30-13:00.
£180* for 12 sessions.
Joining mid-term is possible if there is availability. The price will be prorated based on the remaining number of classes that term.
*Discounts are available for additional family members, low income families or if signing up for 2 classes per week.
