The Principles of Gecko Sports Club:
We promote climbing
When we started this project, we set as our main goal to share with those around us our knowledge about climbing. We love climbing and we want to promote it among children and adults by using all available means at our disposal.
We encourage the correct practice of climbing
After the appearance and spread of the Internet, the information is more accessible, the learning process is easier and, therefore, it is not possible for us not to take advantage of this communication environment. We want to conceive a learning method as accessible and useful as possible and to encourage the training of new skills pertaining to the specific climbing moves, as correct as possible. Given that first of all we put an emphasis on safety, we believe that it is crucial to learn correctly the specific safety techniques.
We protect Nature
We try to protect nature and to educate the responsibility of youth to this end. All climbers love and respect nature and we want to spread this ethics among all those who practice outdoor activities.
We promote the benefits of climbing
Knowing and practicing climbing for several years, we know which the benefits of this activity are and we want to share these benefits with all those around us. Climbing is, first of all, a pleasant sport, where new life lasting friendships can emerge, but it is also a sport that brings countless physical, moral and mental benefits.
Climbing helps you to increase the responsibility of people towards the environment and the partners, to increase the self-trust and the trust in other people, to achieve a balanced physical development, to relieve the daily stress, an improved time managements and to increase the capacity of overcoming certain obstacles.
