Parkour for Schools Programme
The Parkour for Schools Programme was initiated in order to cater for the growing demand in Primary and Secondary schools in the UK for correct, safe instruction in the discipline. It has been seen to have a hugely beneficial effect both physically and mentally for the students at the schools for which we run courses, and the classes commonly engage a diverse demographic of the student body.
Parkour Generations is the official delivery agent of the National Governing Body for parkour in schools. Our coaches are all CRB checked and first-aid training, and are fully qualified and experienced teachers of the discipline.
In conjunction with the National Governing Body we deliver the AQA Accreditation in Parkour, Units 1 and 2, the world's first recognised parkour/freerunning accreditation. Any student enrolled in our Parkour for Schools Programme can aspire to passing these Units within one or two terms of training.
How do we start?
All the school needs to provide is a training space - a gym or school hall - and some basic gymnastics equipment such as horses, boxes, balance beams, mats, parallel bars, ropes etc. The more diversity in the equipment, the better; however, our coaches are well-versed in utilising the equipment at hand to create a challenging and enjoyable class.
Simply contact us directly and we will arrange a Taster Workshop Day and/or Introductory Assembly (including a DVD presentation) to gauge demand, and from there we can move to establishing a regular weekly class for the school.
For more information, or to arrange a taster session for your school, email us directly on Coaching(at)parkourgenerations.com
