New ADAPT awards – Youth and Junior
As of December 2015, we will be offering two new ADAPT certifications for younger practitioners.
For those aged 7 to 10, there is ADAPT Junior while those aged 11-15 can sign up for ADAPT Youth.
ADAPT Junior is an early years stage award which helps to introduce and promote the ADAPT principles of movement excellence and core parkour competencies at an early age. The focus at the Junior Award level is on the child’s ability to perform basic movements, such as jumps, rolls, crawls, vaults, tic-tacs and landings, with a good level of technical skill. Assessment is carried out as a group throughout the day.
ADAPT Youth is for those young practitioners looking to further develop their parkour practice and demonstrate competence. As with ADAPT Junior, assessment is throughout the day, but candidates are expected to have a fair level of movement ability before they undertake this certification. General attitude to training will also be assessed, including attentiveness, enthusiasm and how candidates interact with other students.
The first ADAPT Junior course will take place from 1:00 pm to 5:00pm on the 20th December at the Laura Trott Leisure Centre, Windmill Lane, Hertfordshire and the first ADAPT Youth course will take place from 1:00pm to 5:00pm on the 19th of December at the Chainstore.
