We are currently not taking bookings for classes (or parties) and won’t be in the foreseeable future. Keep training hard and we will see you soon!
The question we get asked the most apart from “Can you teach my kids Parkour?” is …..
Where can I buy a Jump Squad shirt?
Up until now the answer has been only at Jump Squad HQ. We are happy to announce that we will be launching an online store in the next two months with a brand new batch of gear, combining our most popular designs that completely sold out in no time, and some awesome new ones that pop like never before. Stay tuned and make sure you are following us on facebook and subscribed on youtube to stay in the loop!
Our coach and friend Alex Winslow has left us to live in Thailand for a year, and Barnz will soon be continuing his journey as a hipster in Melbourne. For these and other reasons JSHQ will be winding back operations for the next month. That means no more Kids classes or Junior Intermediate classes on weekdays at 4:30. It also means no more Sunset Fridays.
Weekend and evening classes will continue as usual for now. It’s an uncertain time for Jump Squad HQ, but thanks for sharing the good times thus far!
Happy Easter Jump Squad!
Classes and Open Sessions are on as usual this Easter long weekend. We will be having a make up class on Thursday (4th April) afternoon (4:30 – 6:30) for those who can’t make it this Saturday.
Our holiday program is now up and all the classes are on the booking system. We have lots of extra classes and Open sessions, and it will be all casual until the second week of school when our 5 week terms start up again. Please Note that we’ve added another Beginners slot on Sunday mornings as the Saturday was booking up fast! Keep your eyes peeled for news about a special event or two!
Please feel free to contact us if you have any further inquiries.
We hope you have a great holiday period and we will see you at Jump Squad HQ soon!
Well if you wanted to do the ADAPT Parkour and Freerunning coaching course this Easter, now is the time for action!
We will be accepting bookings up until midnight this Monday 11 March. Please email your name, age and contact details to contact@JumpSquadHQ.com to secure your spot.
Remember the course will cover a huge range of topics over 3 (or 4) days and will be presented by none other than Stephane Vigroux from Parkour Generations.
These days every noob and his crew has a DSLR and it’s easy to drown in deceptively crap videos while forgetting those classics that made you stop and think…. “Holy F***ing Shit!”
After a nostalgic night surfing the tubes we decided to start a collection of the best of the lesser known next level videos, old and new, so we can always find the gems that restore our faith in our community. We hope these videos are an eye opener and influence your training and your view of what’s achievable. Watch them all.
