NICAS National Indoor Climbing Achievement Scheme

NICAS at White Spider


All our sessions encourage children to work through the National Indoor Climbing Achievement Scheme (NICAS) and gain skills to last a lifetime. For more information on NICAS, this video will give you a good idea:


There are four levels your child can work through:

- Level 1 Foundation Climber 

- Level 2 Top Rope Climber 

- Level 3 Technical Climber 

- Level 4 Lead Climber 

We will review each child’s NICAS book and performance for that session and record relevant comments and achievements and give them something to work towards in the future.


Price:  £150 per term for NICAS clubs. Open for ages 7 to 17 years. Sessions will be grouped by ability.


Booking procedure:  Bookings are now made online via our Club Bookings pageHowever, if you need further help, please ask at reception, call  us on 0208 397 0390 or email to get involved!
