 Frequently Asked Questions

We have come up with this list of common questions from parents to put you at ease so you know your favourite little people are in the best hands.

We want your children to learn awesome new skills and have an amazing time. But we are also very serious about helping them develop in a safe and comfortable environment.

 

 

How long are the classes?

60 minutes

Can you attend more than one session per week?

Yes. Simply book your child in for the 10, 20 or 30 classes options

What if you can't attend on a given day?

You may make up session on other days where required.

What if I have more than 1 child?

We love seeing kids play with their brothers and sisters.

We offer a 10% discount if you enrol more than one child from the same family.

Can my child who is not participating in the class pay on the equipment?

Unfortunately no. During the class our attention is with the participants and it is impossible and dangerous to try supervise additional kids. It also distracts the class participants.

What do they need to wear?

Closed in footwear and clothing suitable for playing outdoors is perfect. Some aspects will be barefoot but most classes involved equipment where shoes are compulsory for safety and comfort.

Can children play on the equipment and practice after class?

Unfortunately no. Due to safety reasons we do not allow children to play on equipment after class, even if directly supervised by their parents, unless they have purchased an open session for gym access. The coaches don't want to see anyone get hurt while they are not watching and they don't want bad skills or techniques to be picked up outside of class. 

 

How many kids per class?

To ensure a safe environment and a close student to teacher ratio we are limiting class numbers to 10 children (or 20 when we have 2 coaches).

Is it just for boys?

No! Gone are the days where boys play with toys and girls play with dolls. Parkour and movement is for everyone and we love seeing young girls having fun being active. It is also a very effective cross training method for girls looking to excel in ballet, netball, gymnastics or other sports.

Who are the coaches?

We pride ourselves on having some of the best and most experienced coaches in Perth. Coach Andre and Coach Michael have been teaching kids and adults how to safely practice Parkour, Breakdancing, Capoeira, Tricking and Gymnastics for years. 

Andre and Michael are two of Perth's most well known coaches and are highly sought after so we are excited to have them on board this Term!

What safety measures do you take?

Unlike some gyms that are padded and soft and don't have any similarities to the real world we have mostly hard surfaces, wooden boxes and metal bars. Why? Because your kids are going to want to do parkour at school, in the city and on the streets where there are unforgiving and dangerous surfaces. Our parkour program isn't designed to teach kids how to bounce and tumble and land on soft, squishy surfaces. We want to prepare them for the real world they will be playing in. 

With that said, we pride ourselves on delivering very low injury rates by teaching children how to have fun whilst taking calculated and responsible risks. That is where our coaches come in. We will teach them the safest, proven methods of tackling obstacles, jumping off blocks, rolling on landing and swinging between bars to ensure they get the best experience possible. We also have a safety mat for teaching moves over certain heights.

Can parents get involved in the class and help out?

No. Under normal class conditions we would appreciate if parents did not get involved or attempt to assist their children as it may interfere with their learning. If your child has special requirements and needs additional support then please discuss it with your child's coach and they will be happy to make it work. 

Of course, in the event of an emergency or injury parents are permitted to attend to their child as required.
