Outdoor Adventure Clinics
UWF Recreation's Outdoor Adventure Center offers specialized adventure clinics throughout the year addressing a specific topic relating to outdoor adventure travel and fun. By joining an adventure clinic, you will improve your skill level in a particular area, increase your overall awareness of adventure traveling and have a chance to make new friends!
The Pensacola Yacht Club's allows UWF students to participate in its Junior Sailing Program, which sails Sundays 1-4pm, weather permitting. To connect, join the Pensacola Junior Yacht Club's Facebook page, led by their coach Bert Rice, Jr.
Come start your belay certification through OA Climbing Center Belay Clinic.
Once you've participated in one free climb and belay from UWF Rec Staff, we encourage you to be Belay Certified by your next climb.
Each clinic is a 45 min-1 hour course designed to teach the safety skills needed for top-rope climbing. Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to properly put on a harness, tie into the rope, and belay a partner. Participants should bring a partner if possible, although partners could be found in the course. The Clinic has a limit of six participants per instructor. The 6:1 ratio provides for appropriate supervision and allows participants ample direct practice belaying. The second staff person on duty may help instruct, if no other climbers are present; however, the primary role of the second staff on duty is to supervise other climbers who may enter the Center at any moment. Clinics are offered at the first and last hour of open climb. Clinics are the only way that a novice climber can climb on top-rope. During non-clinic times, participants who have passed their belay test may utilize top ropes as a climber, belayer, or backup, and novices can boulder.
