The Association of British Climbing Walls Training Trust (ABCTT) is a small educational charity. We deliver progressive incentive schemes that provide a gateway from indoor climbing into a pathway of life-long participation in climbing and mountaineering. These are called NICAS (National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme) and NIBAS (National Indoor Bouldering Award Scheme).
Our Aim: Developing climbers through quality coaching
Our role is to support the hundreds of climbing centres in the British Isles, and further afield, to deliver the best coaching they can to enthuse, inspire and teach young climbers from all backgrounds. We want climbing to be accessible, to become a regular sporting habit, and to help climbers fulfil their potential. We provide a structured syllabus for climbers to progress from complete novices to competent, creative, capable climbers and boulderers, and supply training to coaches to help them be the best teachers possible.
