2017 ROCK HOPPER CLASSES
All kids and young adult classes are run in parallel with school terms.
8 - 16 years I Monday 4:30 - 6:00 or Saturday 9:00 - 10:30
This Class is tailored for beginner through to advanced climbers looking to improve/gain climbing skills and techniques. Throughout this course we focus on belay safety skills, climbing proficiency, gear, rope knowledge and training drills all taught in a fun-focused and safe environment. Towards the end of the course students are introduced and encouraged to start lead climbing, along with the opportunities to attend outdoor climbing adventures.
As of 2017 we have introduced standardised levels for the Rock Hoppers to progress towards. They range from level 1-6, and build on each other progressively. In level 1, we will be expecting our Hoppers to know some simple climbing knots and to know the basics of belaying while supervised. We can compare this to level 6, where we have integrated in-depth knowledge of top rope/lead climbing/abseiling and even 'traditional' climbing. The Hoppers work towards a new level throughout the term – the instructors can tick off requirements as we go. For dedicated climbers, you could be able to complete two levels within a year. We will be rewarding attaining a new level with certificates as well as laminated tags for the climbers to display on their harnesses.
Outdoor trips and competitions:
We are finalising our dates for the Interschool Climbing Competitions and will hold three this year. We are also organising our trips outside, and will try as much as possible to hold these either in the school holidays, or on a Sunday so they do not interfere with normal classes. During the winter months, we will also hold a few headlamp nights and are introducing a black light night.
Total cost is $236 including all gear hire, per term.
