Masterclass Coaching Academy (MCA)

Pioneering climbing coach, Neil Gresham developed the UK's first coaching qualification scheme, the Masterclass Coaching Academy, which ran for a 10 year period from 2004 to 2014. MCA still exists as a coaching consultancy service but we no longer run scheduled courses or assessments.

A list of the MCA qualified coaches is given on this website. All are accomplished climbers as well as exceptional coaches who have been trained to rigorous standards.


Coach-education sessions with Neil Gresham

Neil is currently available to run one-off coach education sessions for climbing wall staff who wish to improve their skills. These sessions will intrigue and motivate even the highest level of climbers. Neil can cover a range of topics or target specific areas such as video analysis, strength training, and advanced psychology. The ultimate CPD for any climbing instructor or coach.
