Registration for the 2023 Sheffield & Greater Sheffield Schools Bouldering competition is now open!


A fun, inclusive competition, offering a new experience for many who enter - with a large number of teams being made up of pupils who have had little or no previous climbing experience. In some cases, this can spark a lifelong love for the sport! 


Last year, despite the challenges faced by COVID, we still had around 600 students enter across Sheffield and Greater Sheffield.

How does the competition work? 

  •  All registered schools will take part in a 2 hour qualification round booked during the January-February school term time. 

  • The top 10 Sheffield Primary and Secondary schools will be invited to take part in the Sheffield final on the Thursday 30th March. 

  • The top 10 Greater Sheffield Primary and Secondary schools will be invited to take part in the Greater Sheffield final on  Wednesday 29th March.

Qualification format

  • Each school will have 2 hours to try the qualification blocs (8-12 climbs) with points being scored on how many of the climbs get topped and the number of attempts. 

  • The top 6 scores from your school will be added up to give your school an overall score. Each school's score must include at least one male and female. 

  • Qualification rounds will end on the Friday 10th February and schools will be notified if they have made it to the final.
