COACH JOSH

Coach Josh has been climbing for over 5 years all around the globe and moved to Australia at the start of 2022. He began this journey in Canada, where he worked as a YMCA outdoor educator, sleeping in a tipi surrounded by the Rocky Mountains. Josh facilitated all kinds of sessions including overnight hikes, night science, and canoeing, but discovered that high ropes and climbing was his passion.

Josh is now an experienced boulderer and lead climber, and is always interested in learning something new! He has recently started volunteering with Sport Climbing Victoria and you will find him as a judge for the Victoria State Lead Titles in March. Outside the climbing gym he keeps his body in tip top shape with yoga and callisthenics, and enjoys practising his Australian accent – always room for improvement!

COACH DYLAN

Coach Dylan has been climbing over 4 years, with his first introduction to the sport being the quartzite cliffs of Mt Arapiles. After taking up bouldering to train for outdoor rock climbing, Dylan discovered the world of competitive sport climbing, eventually leading him to represent Australia at the World Youth Climbing Championships and the 2023 Oceanic Olympic Qualifier event. Passionate about the mental aspects of the sport, Dylan advocates for approaching climbing with confidence and self belief. He sees every climbing session as an opportunity for personal improvement, emphasizing the importance of focusing on individual progress rather than comparing one’s journey to others.

Benefits of squad

1. Physical development: Bouldering promotes the development of strength, coordination, balance, and agility in children as they navigate climbing routes and problem-solving challenges.

2. Confidence building: Successfully completing climbing routes and overcoming challenges can boost children’s self-confidence and self-esteem.

3. Problem-solving skills: Bouldering routes require children to analyze problems and figure out the best way to navigate them, enhancing their problem-solving abilities.

4. Focus and concentration: Climbing requires focus and concentration, helping children develop these important cognitive skills.

5. Social interaction: Bouldering in a squad setting provides opportunities for children to interact with peers, collaborate, and support each other, fostering social skills and friendships.

6. Physical activity and fitness: Bouldering provides a fun and engaging form of exercise for children, promoting overall physical health and fitness.

7. Risk management: Bouldering teaches children how to assess risks, make safe decisions, and follow safety protocols, which can be valuable skills for various aspects of life.

All in a fun, safe and inclusive environment
