Our Purpose

Midwest Parkour League is a series of parkour events held across several parkour facilities in Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, with more to come as the league continues to grow. Parkour has always been a community driven sport with a culture of openness and sharing of ideals, training methods, and our own cities.

  • Gain experience through competition
  • Meet other parkour students across the region
  • Share skills with one another
  • Visit other parkour facilities

Our History

Due to the involvement of FIG (International Federation of Gymnastics) in parkour during 2017-2018, we decided to host our own grassroots competition series to combat their unwanted claim of our sport and provide a competitive progression path for our students as a means of improving, providing a goal to strive for, and to help inspire the younger generations by creating an environment where they will see and interact with those more experienced practitioners.

Over just a couple months in early 2018 we founded the Midwest Parkour League and with little organization or planning held our first series of 5 competitions which gathered over 200 participants. The 6 original members were: Akron Movement Family, Fight or Flight Academy, Kentuckiana Parkour, Parkour Horizons, Phoenix Freerunning Academy, and Swift Movement Studio.

How can you help the League grow?

Most importantly is to share it and invite your friends to these events! The more participants we have the better prizes we will be able to get!

Additionally, for our league to grow effectively we need a budget to cover marketing, prizes, and equipment that will be put directly back into the community to help create more opportunities and provide a better experience for all of those involved. We are offering multiple sponsorship options to ensure that both your needs are met and it helps us to accomplish our goal. If you have any additional ideas of how we can ensure what you donate is beneficial for you then please email seth@swift-movement.com
