All prospective participants on the NICAS levels 2 and 3 clubs should have completed at least level 1 of the NICAS scheme.
The National Indoor Climbing Achievements Scheme (NICAS) is a nationally recognised award that focusses on profficiency and development of climbing skills and ability. The NICAS clubs require registration with the NICAS scheme for the relevant levels before attendance (available at reception). As these are a developmental club they operate on a block booking basis typically for 4 weeks. Don't worry; if you miss the chance to book on a NICAS block there are Drop in Clubs operating along side them with the only difference that there will not be a formulated week on week development; instead the Drop in Clubs cater for those climbers that may not be able to attend week on week.
