When did parkour start in Airdrie?
How old do you need to be to join?
Our parkour classes are for anyone six years or older.
What will you learn in the parkour program?
We teach being able to navigate your environment in whatever style you like best. Parkour is about moving in the most efficient way possible for our bodies over, through and around obstacles. Freerunning is about expressing yourself through movement; kind of like dance and acrobatics mixed together on obstacles. We teach both styles at our club as they complement each other and help kids learn a much more well-rounded version of the sport.
How many athletes are currently involved?
We have around 150 athletes in our parkour classes, and this year we had 14 members on our competitive team.
What is the best thing about parkour?
The best thing in my opinion about doing parkour is that it can be done anywhere at any time. It applies to all areas of life since it’s about learning how to learn, and how to adapt to new situations.
