Depot Youth Cup – Saturday 16 September

The Depot Youth Cup returns for it’s third year. This year’s competition will once again be held at Depot Climbing Manchester. You can be in with the chance of winning climbing shoes from either Boreal or Evolv.

Qualifiers for all age categories will run from 11am to 2pm.

The Finals will run from 3pm to 5pm. There will be a final in all age categories.

We will be using the IFSC categories for age. Please read the following information carefully to make sure your child is eligible to enter the competition. You are eligible if you were born between 2000 and 2009.

There will be 5 age categories with a male and female sub-category in each.

Youth A – those born in 2000 & 2001
Youth B – those born in 2002 & 2003
Youth C – those born in 2004 & 2005
Youth D – those born in 2006 & 2007
Youth E – those born in 2008 & 2009

All entrants under the age of 14 will require an adult who is capable of supervising them to attend the event and stay with them for the duration of the day. Those aged 14+ will be able to climb unsupervised once they have been signed off to do so and have shown their competence.

Entry is just £12 per child and includes entry to the competition and competition t-shirt.
