What is Southern Youth Bouldering Championships?

The Southern Youth Bouldering Championships (SYBC) is a fun climbing event where Junior and Youth climbers get to challenge themselves in a fun and friendly competition format.

The SYBC is completely open meaning all young climbers are welcome to take part regardless of experience or ability - if they love climbing they will love this event!

Participants should be a minimum of 8 years of age and born between 1999 and 2010.

How does the competition format work?

We have six different categories available for our young climbers to enter and their appropriate category is determined by the their year of birth.

Depending on which category the young climber enters (based on their year of birth) this will then determine which day they should attend, it will be either the Saturday or the Sunday.

Please see below to find out which day you child should attend. 

What happens on each day of the event?

Each day will begin with a friendly qualifying round where all our climbers can take part, have fun and gather as many points as they can on our routes. 

Following the qualifiers the 6 top scoring males and females will then enter our semi-final round, and from there our 3 top scoring male and female semi-finalists will go head-to-head in our spectacular grand finals!

WHICH DAY DO I ATTEND?

Juniors looking to take part in SYBC will participate in one of six Categories (shown below). The Category they should participate in is determined by their year of birth and this in turn will determine which day the Junior should attend.
