Watching and enjoying the Climbing Works International Festival (CWIF) live in Sheffield in March 2017 we wondered why there’s not yet such an opportunity for the Youth JAB to meet and compete just before the opening of the international competition season. Or even just to meet at an international competition not being an EYCB. All brilliant comps are for adults, time for a change!
What if the youth JAB could test where they’re standing on an European level? What if those youngsters that just couldn’t make it to the National Youth Bouldering Team get a chance to prove they should be up there, competing next to members of National Youth Bouldering Teams? What if coaches have an opportunity to test the results of their winter training program just before their trainees need to peak in the first EYCB of 2020?
We proudly present the Delfts Bleau International Youth Open.
Dates: Qualifications on Saturday 28 March (30 flash boulders, scored by number of tops, number of zones, number of attempts for tops and number of attempts for zones) and Finals (4 on sight boulders) on Sunday 29 March 2020.
An open competition for both the top and the sub top of the European Youth competition boulderers with a maximum of 250 competitors. The Delfts Bleau International Youth Open will be a platform for talented young boulderers who might experience their first European competition as no license is needed to participate. Entry fee is €20 per competitor (by registration & payment in advance, official t-shirt included) or €30 per competitor (cash by registration upon arrival, no t-shirt). The boulders will be set by a team of setters led by Jacky Godoffe, Michiel Nieuwenhuijsen and Christophe Cazin.
