We are amazed by the support of the Swiss parkour community and the unbelievable financial donations we got at the end of 2021 / beginning of 2022. This support enabled us to employee Julian Dutoit to be in charge of the development of youth and sports parkour. Julian collaborated with members of the Swiss parkour community to create the first ever youth and sports parkour education. Through the development of youth and sports parkour, Swiss parkour communities get access to trainer certifications and financial support by the Swiss government for teaching parkour!

SPKA is currently laying crucial groundwork for establishing parkour within Switzerland's sporting structures. All the tasks that we are currently taking care of are part of building a platform that enables parkour to further grow as a community-driven movement and therefore staying as independent as possible without missing on the benefits that established sports do have in Switzerland. The Swiss parkour Tour and Youth + Sport are just the beginning of what we plan to achieve. In the end, every parkour organisation and every parkourist can benefit from our doings in the future. SPKA has not ..read more

Dear parkour community Parkour in Switzerland is on the verge of change: After the Swiss Parkour Association SPKA had applied for the inclusion of parkour in Youth and Sports (J+S) in early 2019, the Swiss federal council decided that parkour will be added to the list of J+S sports in April 2020. This decision comes into effect in October 2021. The inclusion of parkour in Switzerland’s largest sports promotion program is an important step for the development of parkour in Switzerland.

Open letter to the parkour community, by Vera Trümpi, 24.05.2021 Dear parkour community This article is based on the thoughts and experiences of women from the parkour community in Switzerland. In addition, I spoke to women which admire observing people doing parkour but never got themselves started because a lot of things stopped them from doing it. The most important questions to discuss: Why are there not more women doing parkour and why is it important to change that? Why often women don’t stay with this sport? What can we do to motivate more women to practice parkour? First of all: We ..read more

These parkour events should have taken place throughout the whole year in different spots of Switzerland. Some of the events were planned as “jam only” while others would add ..read more
