Our “Parkour for Kids” program is totally unique to the DC Metro area. Urban Evolution offers three levels of Parkour for Kids: our ongoing “Kids’ Parkour” program for kids ages 9-11, our “NanoPK” program for younger kids ages 6-8, and our “Youth Parkour” classes for kids ages 12-14.
**The NanoPK classes do not require an Intro to Parkour Class before the actual training; the Kids’ Parkour and Youth Parkour Class do require an Intro to Parkour before kids can join the regularly scheduled classes.**
The NanoPK (ages 6-8) class offers a “structured playtime” approach to parkour training for kids ages 6-8 that incorporates conditioning into games and creative physical activities, and teaches the fundamentals of parkour moves and techniques, including jumping and landing, rolling, vaulting, climbing, and falling safely.

The regular Parkour Kids’ Class (ages 9-11) focuses more on physical conditioning, with an emphasis on chaining techniques together. Kids will need to attend a special “Intro to Parkour for Kids” session first, then join our regular Kids Class!

And our Youth Parkour program (ages 12-14) serves as a transitional program for older kids. Students will have the option to test and graduate into the Adult Parkour program upon instructor approval.

All of these are great for kids who don’t gravitate towards team sports, aren’t confident about their physical condition, or sometimes lack the motivation to get off the couch, put down the videogame controller, and get outside and play! And if your child happens to be a natural athlete, this is a great physical challenge that will help them fine tune their agility and coordination even further. We encourage creativity by creating individual and team challenges, and allow the kids to create rules, obstacles, and games of their own, and then challenge them to play their own games both competitively and as part of a team.
