A key objective of the BMC Talent Development strategy is to develop grass roots and regional talent systems through targeted performance coach education, which forms the backbone of GB Climbing Talent Development. The GB Climbing Talent Hub Scheme was presented at the ABC conference on 28 June 2019, and will provide a direct link between walls, squads and GB Climbing.

The scheme will facilitate collaboration between GB Climbing and climbing walls/squads around the country, especially at a local and regional level. 

It will support athletes and parents who are asking to be signposted to coaches and walls who are delivering high quality coaching to aid their development and performance.

The scheme will highlight the areas that can be developed through targeted coach education so that we can continue to develop the skills of our coaching workforce.

This scheme will enable us to help walls / coaching providers customise their own coach education needs.

For more details on the benefits of the scheme, the criteria for each level (local, regional, national and international) and how to apply please click here

Walls and squads who become part of the scheme will receive a certificate and GB Climbing Talent Hub Logo for use on their marketing materials and communications.


GB Climbing is supported by the BMC, Mountaineering ScotlandClif Bar, and Duco.

The GB Paraclimbing Team is supported by Oakwood Climbing Centre and Quay Climbing Centre. The GB Ice Climbing Team is supported by Montane. Many UK walls also support the GB Climbing through free or subsidised entry.
