Our Family Tasters are a great way to start your journey into climbing with us here at Flashpoint Swansea.

The Family Taster is a 1.5 hour bouldering session suitable for parents with children aged 7 – 17. Both the parents and children climb together, giving you a chance to try a fun new activity as a family.

Young children in particular often feel more comfortable trying a new activity with their parent, so this is a great way to introduce them to climbing and give them the confidence and support to give it a go.

All participants must be over the age of 7 years to take part in these sessions. One adult (over 18) MUST take part in this session.

Our Family Taster is aimed at new climbers wishing to try a new sport and will take you through your first steps on the wall.

You will be provided with climbing shoes and chalk for this session.

On completion of the course adults will be able to register for climbing unsupervised and we can get the children all set up to be supervised by you as well!

 

This session is designed for family groups.  All children participating must be aged 7 years and older and at least one adult MUST take part in the session.

Please arrive at your booked session time, you do not need to arrive earlier than this: Our session times allow for 15 minutes check in and briefing, so you can get your full 1 hour and 15 minutes of climbing! (Please be aware that missing your start time may mean you miss the whole session).

What to wear: You will need to wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move, for example what you would wear during a P.E. lesson or to the gym. It can be a little chilly during the winter, so make sure you have some warm clothes. However, you will warm up when climbing so wearing ‘layers’ that can be added or removed as required is ideal. Please bring along some thin socks to wear withour climbing shoes.

SEND Participants: It is up to the participants, and those accompanying SEND participants, to judge if the session is appropriate. We ask that SEND participants have an accompanying adult who may spectate off the matted area (such as the sofa area by reception).

Open Session: This is an open session with a maximum group size of 6, so you will be possibly be joined by other participants.

At the end of the session the adults will be able to use any of our centres as an independent climber and supervise up to 2 children, for more details on our supervision policy click here.

Please arrive 10 minutes early – it takes a little time to check your paperwork and get your shoes fitted.

Gift Voucher: If you are wanting to book using a gift voucher, please call us on 01792 399618 or book in person.

Getting here: We are easy to get to via car, train, or on foot. Find us on google maps Here

Parking: There is plenty of parking at Parc Tawe. Customers will automatically receive two hours worth of free parking but, by registering their car at reception, can receive a further three hours starting from the moment they enter their car registration.

What to wear: Wear loose comfortable clothing (what you would wear to the gym). It can be a little chilly in the winter, so make sure you have some warm clothes. However, you will warm up while climbing – wearing ‘layers’ that can be added or removed as required is ideal. Please bring some thin socks to wear with the climbing shoes.

Lockers: We have free to use lockers, which require your own padlocks (purchasable at reception).  However we cannot take responsibility for your valuables, so ideally do not bring anything of significant value to the centre.

Café: We have a great café serving coffee, cake, sandwiches and soft drinks.
