National Youth Training Camp

Sport Climbing Victoria, in conjunction with Sport Climbing Australia, are hosting a training camp for youth climbers interested in trying out for the Australian Climbing Team.

The camp will run from midday on Friday the 5th of February until Sunday the 7th at 4pm. As well as tryout simulations for Boulder and Lead, there will be presentations on warming up, injury prevention, competition formats, competition tactics, core training principles, injury prevention and nutrition.

National Coach Will Hammersla says; ‘This is a fantastic opportunity to get some experience in the facilities that will be hosting tryouts.  Pick up tips and training ideas from those that have made the team before, so you’re ready for April.’

The camp will be hosted by Bayside Rock on the Friday and Saturday and Hardrock Nunawading on the Sunday.
