At Flashpoint Swindon, we are keen to support the local community and offer weekly bouldering sessions for home educated children every Wednesday afternoon.

With the guidance of our friendly and experienced coaches, your child will learn how to boulder safely, develop fundamental climbing skills and play plenty of climbing games! Climbing is a brilliant sport for developing agility, balance and co-ordination skills both on and off the wall, as well as confidence and problem solving abilities. Climbing skills are often skills for life which can be applied to many activities and opportunities!

These sessions follow the National Indoor Boulder Awards Scheme (NIBAS).

These sessions are booked in 6 week blocks in line with school terms. NIBAS logbook not included.
