Champlain alums, Ryan Warner and Andrew Smith, started the Champlain Parkour and Freerunning club in 2010. The club originally attended open gym sessions at Regal Gymnastics in Winooski, but Regal Gymnastics has since moved to Essex. Since the club started five years ago, attendance has almost quadrupled.
The Parkour and Freerunning club teaches skills for those interesting in learning parkour and for improving the techniques of those more advanced. Conditioning for parkour and freerunning is recommended, but it is not required. Ultimately, the club strives to create a community of people who enjoy the sport and support their peers.
- The club meets Fridays at 8 PM in Ireland 117 and carpools to the gym.
