National Competitions Schedule 2024

Posted by Team BMC on 21/12/2023

Following a review, we are pleased to present the provisional competitions calendar for 2024.

Note: Venues are still being confirmed, and therefore the calendar remains provisional until this process is complete.

Overview

Our focus is on developing grassroots competition and youth competition climbing whilst fulfilling our role as the National Governing Body in delivering national championships across our disciplines.
 
There has been an increasing investment from the BMC into the domestic competition calendar delivery, along with increasing costs over the past few years In order to ensure a sustainable delivery model we have therefore ensured the calendar is focussed around those core priorities.
 
The reduction in our calendar volume allows us to focus on the above areas, doing less, but better.
 
Note: The British Championships will continue to be run as selection events. Further updates on selection opportunities will be confirmed in the new year.
