Spider Monkeys (6-8 Years)


Who’s it for?


Children aged 6-8 who want to either try something new, or already climb regularly. All abilities are welcome.

What to expect?

These sessions will help your child develop the fundamental skills of climbing through movement
drills, games and practice. Each term will have a different focus designed to help the climbers
improve confidence on the wall and move more fluidly.

What's expected?

Sessions will have a maximum ratio of 1 coach to 5 children, and have up to 15 in a class.
Members of our mini monkeys are required to follow instructions, stick to the basic safety rules and
treat other mini monkeys fairly. These sessions will also help them to develop their group skills with
‘monkey of the week’ awards rewarding effort, good behavior and positive attitudes.

So how does it run?


Spider Monkeys runs on a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at 4:30-5:30pm, Saturday 9:30-10:30, 11:00-12:00pm- 4:30-5:30pm and Sunday 10:30-11:30pm in The Mini Works during Sheffield school term. Parents are not expected to stay, but are welcome to hang around and watch.  



Climbing under the supervision of parents/guardians in The Mini Works can be a great way to build confidence and get more wall time. If you are unable to commit to regular sessions, we run holiday sessions during Sheffield breaks. For those with a natural talent and that show a high level of dedication, we also have an invite only club called ‘Mini WADS’ for 7-9 year olds
