Abstract: In recent years climbing has become more and more popular. It is increasingly becoming an attractive and spectacular sport. Evidence for this trend is the growing trend of climbing competitions being held on bigger and bigger overhangs and ceilings, as well as the upcoming debut of the climbing sport at the Olympic Games 2020. That is why the preparation of the climbers is turning into a serious problem that requires responsible attitude and rationality in the application of different training methods. This applies especially to the training of children, beginner climbers, since childhood is a time in which motor habits are being formed and the proper technique of climbing is being studied.
The purpose of the study is to check the effectiveness of a specialized climbing method for beginners on the physical and technical fitness of 8-10 year old children.
