KIDS

Our Ninja Warrior kid’s classes are all about being safe and having tons of fun doing awesome Ninja moves!  Our classes are broken up into two different age groups: 6-10 years old & 10-14 years old. Skyhook offers a variety of different obstacles for kids of all ages and skill levels.  All of our classes are specifically designed to help kids learn the importance of proper form and technique while doing fun and exciting things like jumping, climbing, swinging, rolling, etc.  We want your kids to have fun while being active!  In addition, obstacles can be a metaphor for overcoming challenges in life as well as physically overcoming challenges in the gym.  We in the importance of being physically active while it is equally important to learn patience and the mental fortitude necessary to conquer obstacles in and out of the gym!

NINJA TRAINING LEVELS 3-4 (AGES 6-14)

If your Ninja has been coming to Skyhook and been placed into level Three or Four, this is the class for them! At this level we are starting to work more of the hanging obstacles from the show, while expanding on the functional agility and basics they have learned up to this point. They can expect to get a fantastic workout while learning new techniques that will help get them ready for the show or local Ninja competitions!

This class can be attended only by those Ninjas ages 6-14 who have been placed into level Three and Four at one of our level testings, or by those who have received prior coach permission. This is a mixed age class because by the time an athlete has reached level Three they have proved themselves to be mature enough to handle the higher intensity workouts and the higher demand for discipline to be working with older children.

PARKOUR BEGINNER (ALL AGES)

If your kids have been bugging you to take a class in that “parkour stuff” that they see on YouTube or in the movies, then this is the class for THEM AND YOU! Parkour is natural, effective movement. Parkour is designed to challenge you both mentally and physically. Learn Parkour fundamentals from World freerunning and Parkour Federation certified coaches, in a SAFE environment. So many Parkour gyms believe that training Parkour should be done in a hard environment with few, if any pads. While it’s true proper coaching will keep students safe, our philosophy is that Parkour gyms should be, before anything else, as safe as possible! That means the highest quality of coaching and staff, and that means the best and most padded equipment. Don’t be scared every time your kids, you, go to practice. Here at Skyhook, you are in good hands.

This class can be attended by anyone and everyone, in the age range of 6 and above. No prior Parkour experience necessary! Want to learn more about our budding Parkour program? Click Here.
