Congratulation to all indonesian climbing communities! We wish more greater FPTI.
Today is anniversary of FPTI, 29 years ago April 21 1988 their founders established FPTI in Jakarta to coordinate any climbing activities in Indonesia. They were realized that only unite in one common organization the activities could get highest achivement as we have seen now.
FPTI with PMM and SMF founded SEACF in Jakarta 1996.
Mr Rasip Isnin, the SEACF President, couple days ago informed that he has been in process to register our federation to SEAGF (the Southeast Asian Games Federation). SEAGF is formed by all National Olympic Committe of ASEAN countries where the SEA Games is one of their responsibility.
With the registration, SEACF is hoping to be included in the near future SEA Games, most possible is in Phillippines 2019. Support from IFSC as international federation and Asian Climbing Council (ACC) is a must for the successful of the process being taken.
We hope in the coming time soon, the President could come up with any good news for any one in the climbing community in the region.
FPTI as the only organization for managing climbing activity in Indonesia will begin to implement the Southeast Asia Climbing Standard in the country. SEACF's President Rasip Isnin signed the MoU with FPTI's President Faisol Riza in Jakarta today to mark the implementation.
With the standard any climbers will have common guidance on climbing activity then they could communicate with other climbing by similar language, of course it will increase enjoyment of the climbing activity and minimizing unnecessary incident during the activity.
The first follow up in the coming soon of the MoU is to train and certify some Indonesia climbers to be climbing instructors, where they will have common understanding and competencies of the standard which already applied siince early 2007 in the Southeast Asia region.
Yes, Singapore will held sport climbing competition again, the Asian Youth Championship 2017 in July. Where many young climbers around Asia will try their best.
This competition will be very important to the international climbing movement where candidate of the Olympic fotmat will be testing here.
The IFSC has decided triatlon-like format speed->boulder->lead where any climber must compete in all category then the best of all will the winner. This format will be play for youth A and surprisingly both winner boy and girl qualify for the Youth Olympic Games 2018 in Buenes Aires, Argentine.
