WHAT IS PARKOUR COMPETITION TEAM?
The Firestorm Competition Team is a group of some of Firestorm’s most talented and hardest working students, training together to compete in the West Coast Parkour Championships (WCPKC). Every Friday night, the team trains to increase their aptitude in the three general categories of competition: Speed, Skills, and Freestyle.
SKILL CHALLENGES: Athletes will learn to use their skills in precise and advanced scenarios to overcome set Challenges that escalate in difficulty. The more difficult the Skill Challenge, the more points it is worth. Athletes will train to take their existing skills to an advanced level where they can be used in ever increasingly difficult scenarios.
SPEED COURSES: Point A to B Obstacle Course racing. Athletes will learn how to defeat obstacles in the quickest and most efficient manner. Endurance, strength, and reaction speed will be worked on until an Athlete is able to react to and overcome incoming obstacles without losing speed or focus.
FREESTYLE: Athletes will learn to use their personal style of movement and skills to create unique Lines. Lines are a connected sequence of skills that flow into one another, showing of an Athlete’s style abilities. Freestyle is generally judged based upon: Flow, Creativity, Difficulty, and Execution of skills in an Athlete’s Line
Each Competition Team member has access to a special Maximum Class Membership that allows them to take full advantage of all the classes offered at Firestorm, in addition to their weekly training with some of Firestorm’s best coaches.
