/ Climbing Training/Coaching Books
I have been looking at the potential of creating a new book focusing on youth training. There are, however a lot of other books on the market so I would appreciate some thoughts on how viable this may be!
Youth as in <16 ? No fingerboard work and a limit on training hours.
Hi Francis, how's Martindale? The most comprehensive book on the market on this subject is probably:
which is written for parents/coaches of said youths. If there's a significant amount of youth-specific info you can add to it then go for it!
Hi John, Martindale is good, getting ready for another winter already! I've had a brief look through the Falcon Guide which is full of good points however is not of much use to young people going through the higher NICAS awards/those looking for ways to improve through practical advice or workshops.
Not sure how much of a market exists...
