Our classes are split roughly into these age groups:
- Micro – 1-2 years old
- Mini – 3-5 years old
- Junior – 6-9 years old
- Youth – 10-13 years old
However, don’t take this as iron-clad! We know better than most that kids develop at very different speeds, and sometimes an 11 year old might be ready to jump into the Youth Class, etc. We generally have a ‘porous’ border of one year either way between the classes, and very quickly our coaches will be able to recommend which class your young mover would benefit the most from.
No, you do not need an induction, you can simply start booking classes straight away! Most of our classes are suitable for all levels of experience and ability, except for the ‘Experienced Classes’ in each age group, which are accessible only to those kids who have achieved the third level, or ‘Animal’ Rank in our curriculum.
You can pay for individual ‘drop-in’ classes but having a Membership at the Parkour School is where the magic happens!
It’s far better value if your child is looking to attend regularly, and all Members are immediately enrolled in our Animal Paths curriculum with its progression paths, achievement records and mastery ranks.
PLUS, Members get discounts on extra classes and our Holiday Camps, as well as discounts on our kids clothing and parkour gear. It’s a no-brainer.
There’s a simple solution; you just need to create a Family Account.
1) Download the ‘Parkour Generations’ app and create account
2) Click on your profile and scroll down to ‘Family Account’
3) Click on ‘Add child’ and enter their details there
4) Confirm and click on their name – you will then be able to book a class in their name.
5) If you are booking more children, please repeat the same process for each child. Simples!
Whatever they are comfortable moving in.
We recommend sports or fitness clothing, anything light and non-restrictive, and basic trainers or running shoes. PArt of the School is designed to be ‘shoe-free’ in order to strengthen young feet and enable soft floor activities such as acrobatics.
Yes, we love throwing parkour parties! Just fill out the contact form in the footer and let us know the date you’d like and our team will get back to you very swiftly.
There is free parking available in the Central Harbour area on the weekends and the School is easily accessible via public transport links – South Quay on the DLR and Canary Wharf on the Underground Jubilee Line. We are very easy to get to!
We generally have a ‘no food’ policy in the venue, and encourage children to bring only water to drink.
Kids operate and learn far better without a sugar rush, and nothing is better to rehydrate with than water. If they bring a bottle, they are more than welcome to fill it up as often as they want at the venue.
Yes, we do – our Young Traceur Classes are for teenagers between 13-16, but these happen at our other London venue just 5 minutes away – the Chainstore Gym & Parkour Academy.
When your child reaches that age and is ready to graduate into those classes, our coaches will be very happy to transfer you over to where the Big Kids play…
