We are hosting our annual, friendly Junior Selection event on Saturday 13th July.  This is aimed at any young people interested in gaining competition experience and/or being considered for Boulder UK’s Development Squad or Academy for the coming year – 2024/25.

The event format will be closely related to a YCS (Youth Climbing Series) bouldering round. 

Competitors will be split into the relevant youth categories based on their year of birth as per the IFSC’s regulations (International Federation of Sport Climbing).

There will be 8 blocs/problems set for each category and the young people will have 2.5 hours to complete them with a maximum of 5 attempts per bloc. 

The event will run in a scramble format, each problem will have a judge and competitors are free to decide the order in which they attempt climbs.

We encourage all of our current Development Squad and Academy climbers to attend, as well as any of our BlocMasters and Minis interested in competition experience and/or being considered for the Development Squad or Academy. Please note that a current place on this year’s Development Squad or Academy does not guarantee a place for the coming year. 

If you would like to enter your child for the Selection Event, please complete the registration based on their year of birth below.
