Climbing skills and coaching

In the pages here you will find what we have to offer in terms of climbing skills and coaching. We work closely with a range of other organisations to contribute towards the development of skills and coaching in Scotland.

Check out what we have to offer:

  • Coaching Awards: These awards are managed by Mountain Training. The Coaching Award Scheme is designed to develop the coaching skills of those working in indoor climbing walls, sport climbing and bouldering.

  • Coaching Workshops: We run a range of coach education workshops. The three FUNdamentals of Climbing workshops are perfect for anyone involved in introducing people to climbing through to coaching a climbing squad, while the Physical Training workshops help coaches advise on the basics of training specifically for climbing.

  • Coaching Symposium: Meet up with climbing coaches from across Scotland for this inspirational and informative gathering which only takes place once every two years.

  • Coaching & route setting: Are you interested in working for Mountaineering Scotland and supporting our events/competitions? We endorse a series of coaches and route-setters based on experience and qualifications relevant to the two areas of work. Find out more…
