Southern Youth Bouldering Championships, September 2019

Following the incredible success of last year's event, the Southern Youth Bouldering Championships (SYBC) returns to Rockstar Climbing on the 14th and 15th September 2019

This year we decided to slightly rescheduled the SYBC (previously held in July) due to the epic expansion of Rockstar Climbing, Building 5 opening this summer, but despite this short delay we are incredibly excited to announce this fantastic event will now take place on the 14th and 15th September 2019.

If you didn't join us last year the Southern Youth Bouldering Championships (SYBC) is a two day bouldering event held at Rockstar Climbing, Building 3 in Swindon over a dedicated weekend, its purpose to celebrate all youth climbers and youth climbing in general all across the country. It became the first event of its kind in 2018 and this year we are making it bigger and better for 2019!

The SYBC is a completely open event which means any young climber can enter and take part in this fantastic and fun event. The SYBC comprises a qualifying round, semi-finals and a grand final. There are six categories for the SYBC and young climbers will take part in one of these six based on their year of birth. Each category is split into boys and girls.
