We run weekly classes for under 18 year-olds during term-time. These are separated into two age groups.
If you are interested in joining but haven't climbed at Rainbow Rocket before you will need to go through the registration process first, and then book a taster session. Taster sessions ensure that newcomers know how to climb and act safely in a centre, as well as giving them a chance to try the sport before committing to a whole term.
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:
- Tuesday 16:30-17:30
- Thursday 16:30-17:30
- Saturday 10:20-11:20.
£140* for 12 weeks
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 weeks
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.
