Preventing Sport Injuries: The Parkour Connection

Having kids in sports is an investment for sure and there is nothing more frustrating for an athlete (or a parent) than getting an injury mid-season that takes them out.

But, how do you keep athletes in tip-top shape, motivated, and strengthening the whole body? Cross Training is the answer! According to a Johns Hopkins Medicine article, "Cross Training is important for athletes so they are not continuously putting stress on the same muscles and joints."

How Does Parkour Help Prevent Injuries?

  • Parkour teaches landing, falling, and body awareness techniques that boost athletic intelligence for any sport

  • Learning parkour skills creates well-rounded athletes & defends them from many sports injuries

  • Parkour's effective falling and rolling techniques keep athletes safer when playing running sports like soccer, football, or basketball

How do I get my child athlete involved when they have such an active sports schedule?
