LINCOLN YOUTH SERVICES
'GO FOR IT' PARKOUR WORKSHOPS

and
'SPORTS OUTREACH' PARKOUR DISPLAY
Lincoln 25th October 2006
Staring out from her office, Lincoln Youth Worker Kulbir Kaur noticed a 'young bloke jumping around their car park'.

Turned out that the 'young bloke jumping around' was Stuart from Lincs Parkour who had taken time out from college to put the Youth Services car park to better use.

Like most people, Kul had never heard of Parkour but soon realised during Stuart's interrogation that it could fit pretty snuggly into a new, upcoming campaign called 'Go For It'. The program was designed around the half term break as a means to get the young people of Lincoln into alternative forms of physical activity.

Stuart also informed Kul of Worldwide JAM's plan to stage its first official PK workshop in Lincoln. Not one to miss out on such opportunities Kul immediately contacted WJ to see if we would get involved.

Coincidentally Oliver Cullen from 'Sports Outreach Development' was also looking for a Parkour display to be incorporated into his 'Extreme Sports Day' at the Kesteven Sports Centre. It just so happened that this event fell on the same day as 'Go For It's' first PK workshop which would run from Wednesday to Friday. In one afternoon, Worldwide JAM had found it's first permanent home for PK workshops and a full itinerary of workshops for the week.

So for what started out as Stuart PKing around a car park turned into a Parkour fest for Worldwide JAM and the guys from Lincs Parkour.

During the 4 hour 'Extreme Sport' demo, Lincs Parkour were visited by numerous dignitaries representing Lincoln's local authorities. Dale and the lads stepped up to plate to explain what Parkour actually is and the far reaching positive effects it can have on our young people. All the VIP's who attended admitted that they now had a greater understanding and that their initial preconception of Parkour had been changed by the efforts of Lincs Parkour. Mission Completed.

If displaying Parkour for 4 hours wasn't enough to sap their energy levels, Lincs Parkour also hosted the 'Free' 2 hour 'Go For It', workshop session in the afternoon. 18 students turned up for the Wednesday session, 24 on the Thursday and 28 on the Friday. Word of mouth was spreading and by Sunday, Parkour had become well and truly established in Lincoln society.

Everyone at Worldwide JAM would like to thank Kul for her considerable negotiating skills, (next step 'The Apprentice'), Oliver Cullen and Ben Jackson for giving us a PK base in Lincoln and above all, Lincs Parkour. Stuart, Dale, Jim, Ian and Ryan worked their socks off over the four days and were fantastic ambassadors for Parkour.
