The United States Parkour Association aims to serve as the national governing body for Parkour, Freerunning, and Art du Deplacement in the United States of America; founded by the community, in service of the community.
We are committed to founding an organization upon good governance principles, open communication, ethical integrity, and inclusive development. We will work to serve our national community equitably, transparently, and in good faith, working in partnership with both individual practitioners and groups every step of the way.
In light of recent events and the overwhelming response of the community, several major organizations across the country have recognized the need to come together. We are building an initial constitutional framework for you, the larger community, to review, comment on, and approve.
Below we have laid out a roadmap to organizational establishment, including public comment periods, a general assembly, and official first release.
On January 31st, the proposed bylaws will be released and open for public comment. These bylaws will present a structure for the organization, scope of services, and paths to membership and further involvement. We welcome comments or concerns in the meantime.
