White Spider Competition Squad | TRIAL EVENT



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

Under the guidance of Head Coach Guy Davenport and his team of coaches, the squad has gone from strength to strength over the last three years. We’ve had some of our members compete internationally, representing GB Climbing and we’re so excited to keep that progress going!  

Apply Now!

We’re looking for new youth talent to join our squad, so we’re opening up applications to a trial event on Saturday 6th July 2024, alongside our current Squad members. This is your chance to climb and train with the White Spider Climbing Squad under Head Coach Guy Davenport.

Guy has over 15 years of experience as a development and performance coach. As a graduate of Neil Gresham’s Masterclass Coaching Academy, his expertise, extensive experience and commitment offer outstanding opportunity and support to the Squad and to individual development.
