We’re excited to announce that Seaford College has been approved to deliver the National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme (NICAS). Congratulations to Peter Bolton and his team for their commitment and hard work to support the scheme.
NICAS provides the structure and motivation for new climbers to develop their climbing skills in order that they may gain the most out of their sport; as well as having their achievements recognised.
Peter said: “By delivering NICAS at Seaford, we aim to promote good practice, deeper knowledge of the sport and provide a structure for climbing development. Running the Scheme builds on the successes Seaford has had and will continue to inspire people to achieve their best”.
Martin Chester, Executive Officer of the ABCTT, said: “I’m delighted that Seaford will be delivering the NICAS Scheme. The scheme is designed for everyone, from complete novices to experienced indoor climbers. We believe that high standards should be encouraged early on in a participants’ climbing career so that both safety and enjoyment can be practised to the full, and we believe NICAS provides that framework.”
The students are excited about the new scheme. Rory King from Yr 7 said: “The instructors are very good. They’re helpful. I’m definitely going to carry on coming to climbing at Seaford”.
