The mock competition for our Victorian State Lead Titles was held over the weekend. We sought to not only train our volunteers but also show competitors what to expect in a live competition. We simulated the competition format including how to handle isolation and mentally prepare to climb.
Youth B, A and Masters competitors did two qualifying routes and one final route. Coach Sophie Bell focused on managing warm up, head space and staying warm between climbs in isolation.
Youth C and D got to practice the new format being trialled next Saturday with 4 climbs and no isolation.
A big thank you to Hardrock Nunawading for allowing us to utilise the space to prepare for state titles.
