Benefits of climbing for children and young people

Climbing can be a powerful part of a high-quality physical education program. It is a very attractive activity that offers a great alternative to traditional team sports.

School walls are also a fantastic opportunity for your students to gain confidence in themselves and to develop a teamwork spirit.

A climbing wall, yes, but where to install it in a school?

The advantage of building a climbing structure in a school or university is that it can be adapted to your available space.

  • A traverse can be installed in a hall, under a prehau, in a playground, etc.

  • A boulder wall could be installed in a gymnasium (school, city-owned), or on a mezzanine. We recommend 4.5m high available.

  • A Lead/ Top Rope climbing wall will require a few meters available in height (we recommend at least 6-8m for the little ones, using TrueBlue auto-belay for example), 8-10m for young people in college, and 10m minimum in university.

  • Speed Climbing walls require a minimum height of 10-15m.


What type of climbing wall and discipline to choose for your school or university?

There are several disciplines in climbing. Some are more recommended depending on the target audience (children, adults...). It is important to know if you want "recreational" walls or if you want to train your students for competition.

To help you in your choice, we have developed a guide. You can download it on this link.
