Parkour Program Launching in Spring 2019
Quincy is ready for Parkour! Our Parkour demo earlier this month was great and Gem City will be offering more Parkour activities! Gem City’s certified Parkour instructor, David Boden-Shackleton, describes Parkour as using obstacles as opportunity.
Here are the basics of what Gem City is planning for its Parkour program:
∙ Intro to Parkour classes from 6-7 p.m. every Sunday, starting on February 3 and running through the rest of the Spring 2019 session.
∙ It will be a one hour class, priced just like all of our other one hour classes.
◦ This price IS included in family max/team family max.
∙ Ages 7 and up can attend.
◦ If turning 7 during the spring session, then you can attend.
∙ Participate either shoeless/sockless or wear a pair of non street shoes.
We were excited really by what a great family event the Parkour demo was. We had many full families attend the demo. It’s something kids can do with their siblings and parents! The Parkour classes will be the same type of family-friendly events!
There are levels of Parkour, but everyone must first do the Intro class. As our athletes progress to higher levels, we’ll offer other times for more advanced classes to meet, but for spring of 2019 it’s just going to be the intro class.
We have the full facility to ourselves, so we’ll be taking advantage of the space!
Look for our spring schedule on our website the first week of November! Spring registration begins Monday, November 19.
