SCHOOL GROUPS

Rock climbing is a challenging and fun activity that your students will love.  Whether it’s a day excursion or a climbing course, we will make sure it’s a great experience. We pride ourselves on high teaching standards, best practices and above all a safe learning environment.

Rock climbing is a great youth activity. It relies on physical exertion and mental focus to participate.  Best of all it is accessible by students regards of their fitness or strength. Our climbing walls feature routes of various difficulties. Therefore each student will be challenged against their own abilities.

Through the practice of climbing and the course activities, students learn effective communication, teamwork and goal setting. Rock climbing is great for building self-confidence both on and off the wall.

CLASS SCHEDULE
  • Stretching and a warm-up
  • Introduction to course content
  • Recap of previous material

Students are divided into groups of eight and assigned an Instructor at the start of their course. These groups remain consistent to encourage team building, communication and familiarity among peers and climbing styles.

COURSE CONTENT

Students are introduced to skills and techniques for rock climbing. Similarly they will practice skills in communication, team work and goal setting. Each class presents new ideas and concepts.

Each week students are given the opportunity to climb and practise the prescribed skills and outcomes.  A Certificate of Attainment is awarded to students at the completion of the course. We encourage graduates to continue their climbing practice. Therefore we have created discounts to OBC graduates which are valid for the remainder of the year.

School administrators are provided with course assessment results and feedback is available on individual and group performance. To book call us on 9248 7035.

MISSED CLASSES

It’s recommend that no classes are missed as the course is quite short and the lessons detailed. However, if time allows, Instructors will do their best to catch you up on any missed content the following week.
