After a significant amount of development, New Zealand’s parkour coaching pathway is now live!
The Parkour NZ Coaching Pathway is a dual stream model consisting of professional
development courses and qualifications.
The professional development courses are hands-on training experiences that support current and aspiring parkour coaches in their trade, connect them with other coaches and opportunities around the country, whilst also preparing them for the coaching qualifications.
The coaching qualifications consist of Level 1 – Assistant Coach and Level 2 – Full Coach. Level 1 qualified coaches are accredited to support Level 2 coaches, and Level 2 coaches are accredited to coach classes on their own.
The vision behind the pathway has been to develope a system that draws on some of the best qualities of parkour itself – adaptable to the participants and the environment – while bridging the gaps between the global parkour coaching qualification culture, the New Zealand parkour community values, and New Zealand’s traditional sport coaching landscape.
