More outreach, more obstacles, more classes!

This past Fall has been a really exciting time at Parkour Visions, and thanks to your support, we've been able to extend our reach, build some cool stuff, and open more classes!

We've been sending our coaches to three local elementary schools and a local middle school regularly for after-school parkour programs, and the kids have been loving it. The programs run outside in the real world on and around school playgrounds, so the kids are learning to see and interact with their environment in creative, fun ways.

In the gym, we've built low and high wall sections that are more analogous to obstacles we see outside every day (complete with concrete coating!), and have made interesting springy toys and new boxes that open up lots of parkour possibilities and allow us to teach particular movements more effectively. You can see some of our new equipment in action in the video from our Halloween Obstacle Course event

This December, we're rolling out a major schedule change at the gym that opens up addtitional classes in our young kids (ages 6-8) and regular kids (ages 8-13) programs, increases the number of adult basics classes, and changes the flavor of our intermediate and advanced-level classes to allow more focused training.

As we enter the season of gratitude, gifts, and new beginnings, we thank you, our donors, for helping us get where we are today. Your continued partnership with us will help us keep expanding our reach and teaching safe, effective parkour practice to people in the Seattle area.
