We are excited to be back at Casa Chirilagua this fall. Like us, Casa Chirilagua is a 501(c)3. Their mission is to build relational bridges to holistically transform communities. This resonates with PK Move: our mission is to share the transformative power of parkour and building community is one of our core values.
Your generous donations allow us to offer enrichment programs like this one. Why are they important? Afterschool enrichment provides an environment where children can supplement, delve more deeply into or expand what they are learning in school. These programs align with the parent work day, to ensure a safe place for their children to continue to learn and play until they come home.
PK Move is especially dedicated to serving kids who are “underserved” in opportunities for after school play. Many of the neighborhoods we coach in have no playground and little or no play space. This is what parkour is all about! It’s a new way of looking at your environment to imagine where/how fun challenges can be created. The kids are happy and having fun. And the practice of parkour naturally builds confidence, creativity and community. In addition to that, the kids don’t realize how much they are enhancing brain development when we make them move through an obstacle course backwards! For this group of English Language Learners, we will slip in some ninja language skill enhancements as well. That’s the PK Move difference. High-quality parkour training tailored to the needs of your group.

PK Move coaches kids from ages 1-18 years in a variety of formats. Call us today. If we don’t have a program which fits your needs, we can custom design a new one for your group.
After school and in-school programs available. Do you want fitness classes, obstacle course, or ninja games for your group? We’ve got you covered! However, with a teacher on staff, we also offer Interdisciplinary/cross-curricular lesson plans (Science, Language Arts, ESL, PE, Social Studies, Math), fundraising, service projects, assemblies, PBS programs, team-building, designed to dovetail with your school’s curriculum. Special needs always welcome. All abilities, including non-ambulatory, can join the fun. Visit www.pkmove.org for more information today!
The PK Move Team is excited to be coaching 50+ students in Alexandria. As part of an enrichment program, the student receive parkour training before hitting the books. Why? Studies have shown exercise may improve cognitive function. Plus it’s FUN!
