Parkour Classes in Adelaide

We run a variety of Parkour classes in different locations and for different groups of people. This page lists our public classes – but we also run workshops, sessions in schools, personal training, and events. You can always contact us if you need more information or want to enquire about organising a session. The South Australian Parkour Association’s Parkour Instructors are qualified under the Australian Parkour Association.

Unless noted, ALL CLASSES ARE SUITABLE FOR COMPLETE BEGINNERS. The aim of all our classes is twofold:

  • Equip students for training independently
  • Build a strong Parkour community

If you have any questions you can contact us. Remember that your instructors, and the people responding to your messages are all volunteers.

Sunday Outdoor Classes

Our longest running, largest, and most diverse session. In many ways, these are at the centre of SAPA’s community. Most assistant instructors are raised through these classes. Each week you will be trying something new and visiting new locations around the Adelaide city. Instructors at these sessions are volunteering their time to share their experience and love of Parkour.

Details:

Time – 2:45pm, class runs 3-6pm

Meeting Location – Corner of Rundle Mall and Gawler Place at the large silver canopy [see here for reference picture]

Cost – $10

Details: We offer 2 class types on Sundays – First Timers and Basics. Both classes run at the same time each week. No bookings required. The classes are suitable for 10-50+ years.

You will be required to sign a waiver before you can participate – we will have them there for you to sign but you can print it before class to save time. If you are under 18, a Parent or Guardian must also sign this Waiver. If you are under 15, we require parental supervision for the length of the class. Even better, we recommend the parents join in too!

Note that parking can sometimes be difficult if other events are on, so always allow time as the class will not wait for you.

This class runs throughout the year, which means you need to come prepared to train in diverse conditions from pouring rain to intense heat. Bring a backpack with water and wear shoes that you can run in.

SAPA runs several activities at Point A, the ‘movement culture’ training warehouse in the city.

More coming…

We are always willing to speak with venues or communities seeking to establish a local class, or something specific to how they wish to train. All of our current classes have been built on word of mouth and working with groups who are eager to establish something. Please get in touch via contact@sapa.asn.au.

Learn independently

Classes are the fastest and safest way to learn about Parkour. However, there are many other ways to begin Parkour. See the Join Us page for some other options.

  • can kids join

    • Each class has a different age range. Kids 10+ will be able to come to Sunday classes once they start again, and Blackwood on Tuesdays takes kids a little younger.

  • Is the only location for children 10yrs old at Blackwood? Are there other options?

    • Hi Mandy – sorry for the long delay in replying to your message. With adult supervision – kids 10+ years old are able to come to our regular Sunday classes, which run from 2:45 – 6pm every Sunday, meeting on the corner of Rundle Mall and Gawler Place, under the large silver canopy. The classes are staffed by SAPA volunteers and cost $10.
      Blackwood class for ages 9-14 runs every Tuesday from 6:10-7:10, and more information on those can be found on the blackwood rec centre website.

  • Are any classes available for an 8 and 7 year old now?

    • Hi Renee – sorry for the long delay in replying to your message. Blackwood Rec Centre currently runs Parkour classes Tuesday evenings from 6:10-7:10, for ages 8-12. More information can be found on the Blackwood Rec Centre website.
