Johnny Dawes coaching CYCC

Following on from the successful coaching masterclass, Johnny Dawes delivered two coaching sessions to CYCC young climbers in Awesome Walls Dublin on Saturday January 26th.

This was one of those rare opportunities for young climbers in the club to meet and train with one of the worlds most talented climbers. The large group of climbers was split into two workshops of close to 3 hours each with each session commencing with a discussion before starting a fun set of movement exercises. Certainly nothing their coaches would have taught them to date! The session progressed into more challenging technical problems where everyone got a chance to try. Each session ended with a debriefing session where the climbers got a chance to review their progress during the day.

The club is hugely grateful to Johnny for the time he spent with the kids.
