Clayton Green Sports Centre Update
Clayton Green classes on Tuesday evenings will now run during the term time only. Exact dates up to April 2019 should have been sent out via an email from Active Nation. The classes have also changed the age boundaries so that the eariler and later class are now both open to ages 6 – 16 years.
Based on the feedback from you all, the new payment methods outlined in the email from Active Naton did not come accross clearly.
There are now 3 payment options: weekly, termly and yearly. The weekly class price will remain at £8 per class. The term price will vary depending on the number of weeks in the term (no of weeks x £5) The yearly price is £205 from start of April 2018 to end of March 2019 for those who want to pay for the year up front. We will update our website to show the new price per term before the start of each new term. If you are still confused, please email Tom at:
Burrs Country Park Announcement
First of all, we would like to thank all of our regular members for their continuing commitment to these classes despite the varying weather conditions! Our team loves coaching such a dedicated group and you are all improving rapidly at the minute. Keep it up, summer is coming!
Just a note to all parents: Our team have got another class set up over in Leigh for after the Burrs classes on Sundays from now on. Please ensure that you are on time to pick up your children each week so that we can make it over to our other classes on time. Thankyou 🙂
Parkour for Schools
The Project Z Parkour team are now doing more work with schools and educational establishments than ever. We have 2 regular after school clubs at Accrington Academy and Saddleworth High School each week and we have also just set up 2 before school clubs for the coming term over at Blackrod Church School.
If you, or anyone you know, works in a school/educational establishment that may be interesting in offering parkour classes to their pupil’s, get them to get in touch with Tom on firstname.lastname@example.org or tell them to have a look at our parkour in education page.
Classes This Month
This month we seemed to only get pictures from our Burrs and Cloud classes (next month we will do better!) But here’s a little insight into what we get up to in our Manchester based parkour classes. Everything from silly warm up games, to teamwork and fear facing exercises… And a conditioning exercise we like to call “the human centipede”:
We would also like to make a special shoutout to Phil for being the only person to actually tag Project Z Parkour Training in his homework attempts from this month with his home made balancing bar set up! We know more of you are doing your homework so get tagging.
Remember to keep watching out for our Youtube updates as we try to post regular content over there with a bit more of our training than you can find on our Facebook and Instagram feeds.
Check out the video from our team trip to Sheffield:
And have a look at Tom’s solo training session from the start of the month!
Our mass instagram upload may be done of the spare clips from last year but the team are training more regularly and harder than ever so make sure you follow our Instagram page for daily content!
