British Mountaineering Council – Coaching Symposium

BMC_logoThe annual British Mountaineering Council Coaching Symposium has become one of the most important weekends in the climbing coaching calendar.

This year, the symposium was held at Plas y brenin, the National Mountain Sports Centre and The Beacon Climbing Centre. I delivered on numerous sessions throughout the weekend, including:

  • The work of the BMC Talent Profiling project, and my role as the strategic lead for Technical:Tactical profiling and development. This included our revolutionary use of the Tactical Skills Inventory for climbing.
  • A session on “Effective Questioning for Coaches” to explore the importance and fulfill potential of this fundamental aspect of the coaching process.
  • Practical sessions on Flags and Markers, and their importance in analytical observation of climbing movement for coaches and climbers alike.
  • An update on the Mountain Training Coaching Award Scheme as their Coaching Development Officer.

The event was filmed and you can watch a short video (hosted on BMC TV) here.BMC Coaching Symposium
