IFSC: Womens Coaches’ Clinic

The International Federation of Sport Climbing commissioned Opal to document their Womens Coaches’ Workshop, just down the road from us at City Bloc climbing gym in Leeds. The workshop was hosted by GB Precision Climbing┬áteam coach Ellie Glennie, and 4 other coaches from around the world.

The highlight has to be the pride in Silvia Verdolini (IFSC) when she explained that when she joined the IFSC she was the only female in her team. And 6 years later, she’d organised a womens coaches’ clinic, bringing together women from all over the world, hosted by a female coach and documented by a female videographer and photographer.
