Champlain alumni 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.
We are first and foremost a social club. We give students the opportunity to practice the art of parkour and freerunning at their own pace in a safe, professional environment while also giving them something constructive to do on a Friday night.
We meet Fridays at 8:00 PM in Ireland 117 and carpools to the gym.
