Finally, here is the first comprehensive book designed for climbing coaches and teachers and parents of young climbers. Coaching Climbing presents an integrated approach to coaching, focusing on individualized evaluation and training of climbers as the key to improving performance and maintaining safety and enthusiasm. It includes exercises for working on movement, training for competitions, sensible physical conditioning, and injury prevention. Longtime climber and author Michelle Hurni explains how to evaluate a climber's skill level, set goals that everyone can live with, and teach kids to "climb with the brain." She details dozens of games and activities designed to motivate young climbers while teaching them proper movement and improving their technique. Additionally, Hurni explains how to make a safe transition from climbing in a gym to climbing in the outdoors.

This booklet provides a comprehensive resource for those wanting to know more about the specialist equipment required for climbing.
