Competition Squad Trial Event

Our White Spider Competition Squad is looking for youth talent to train and compete with us!

Before the pandemic hit, the White Spider Competition Squad was the most successful squad in the country during the 2019-20 YCS (Youth Climbing Series) – now, after an extended period without competitions and training opportunity, we can’t wait to get back to developing our youth team!

For the relaunch, we’re opening up applications to trail for a place on the Spider Squad, with successful applicants invited to attend our trail event on 17th July 2021 alongside our current Squad members.
