Flexibility isn't just for showing off, it has tremendous health benefits from increased quality of life to injury reduction

Training at Parkour gives kids laser-like focus. They'll have the ability to have sustained patience at will, and they'll benefit from it for life.
Children need a safe, structured place to learn to overcome obstacles in order to build grit and determination.
Confidence isn't just a buzzword, it's what we do. Your child will build deep, unshakeable confidence that they'll take everywhere they go.
Philadelphia parents agree:
It's not just kids that love Parkour. Once they see Parkour classes, parents love it because it's more than just a fun activity
A program built specifically for Philadelphia parents
After School Philly Parkour class times were designed by parents for parents - you're almost guaranteed to find a time that works for your families needs.
Your child will be surrounded by peers striving towards the same goals they are. They'll build friendships and be supported in their journey.
There's literally no better place for your child to learn life skills like Persistence, Determination and Empathy. They'll listen and learn from role-model instructors, and they'll love it!
It's more than scaling walls in the blink of an eye - it's proprioception, balance, agility and more - physical traits that will remain with and benefit your child for the rest of their lives.
Kids need activities that are engaging and awesome. They *have* to be cooler than video games, TV, phones and other screen oriented activities that simply aren't beneficial. Parkour is exactly what they want - here's why:
The Philadelphia kid consensus...
Kids can see their own strength building after only a few weeks. They love to see their strength grow in real time, working each day on becoming the strongest version of themselves.
Yes, the reality is that every child thinks they're already a ninja 🤣! Once they get into class though, they start learning actual, real "ninja" moves, and they absolutely love feeling like a superhero.
While many parents are new to Parkour but almost all kids know what is. In kid culture, Parkour is awesome, and parents can feel great knowing it's also packed with benefits
At After School Philly, we've seen a lot of local kid's programs come and go. But there's a reason that Parkour is so popular - kids absolutely LOVE it. It's the most fun activity available for them, hands down!
Of American children are obese or are at risk for obesity
To help fight and prevent Obesity, kids need to move! The reality though is that our lives aren't setup for movement. With 7+ hour seated school days and busy parent work schedules, it's tough to keep modern kids healthy
Lead sedentary lives
Almost half of Adults are sedentary
More and more it seems inevitable that as kids grow into adults, they slow down and become unhealthy. It doesn't have to be this way, but we have to create healthy movements habits before it's too late.
Our goals for our Parkour students are the same as your goals as a parent. Confidence, Self-Esteem, and Healthy Habits for life!
Having a solid foundation of positivity in your child's life is invaluable. You can't control their experiences everywhere, nor would you want to. But at After School Philly, you know they'll always be good ones.
At After School Philly, it doesn't matter if your child isn't the best kid on the team; they'll never ride the bench. They'll always know they're valued members of class, and part of the team, each and every day.
Traditional Youth Sports don't work for most kids.
For many families, the emotional cost and lack of real benefits simply isn't worth the effort and time commitment
Parkour at After School Philly is the perfect solution
All of the benefits of a group sport - teamwork, interaction with peers, learning with a group, but with all of the advantages of an individual activity
