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.

60 minutes

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. 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 limit class numbers to 10 children per coach (8 for the 5-6 years). 

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 Jacob, is the founder of Movement Co and began the Kids Movement program in early 2016. Jacob has been a Strength and Conditioning and Movement Coach for over 3 years and has taught kids Parkour in schools as well as our adult Parkour program. Our assistant coaches are all highly experienced and qualified and have a diverse range of skills and experiences to bring to the program. 

What safety measures do you take?

Some gyms are super padded and squishy and don't have any similarities to the real world of concrete floors, brick walls and metal bars. Why? Because they want to keep kids "safe". But we know that kids are going to want to do parkour, freerunning or tricks at school, in the playground and on the streets where there are unforgiving and dangerous surfaces. Our kids movement 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 and learn real life skills.

With that said we do have a number of crash mats and softer blocks which we use above certain heights and for unfamiliar movements, especially for the younger kids, so that they can learn in a less intimidating environment. 

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.
