About Us


Vision

There’s a concept in Parkour that practitioners speak about known as “parkour vision.” The thought is that once you have practiced parkour long enough and learned enough techniques, you get this second sight, viewing the everyday obstacles around you in a different lens, so to speak. This concept is what Pursuit Athletics is built around. Our vision is to expand perspectives and enjoy life wherever you go.

Mission

Currently our organization major goal for accomplishing this task is to Educate the Kootenay population about Parkour, Movement, & Fitness and how to perform these activities wherever you are. We believe that being active and understanding how to do it safely & effectively are key components in accomplishing a healthy and engaging lifestyle.

Values

  • Engagement: Always seek enjoyment & fulfillment for all involved, clients & employee.
  • Honesty: To always provide truthful and educated options & feedback.
  • Perseverance & Resilience: To pursue something despite obstacles & failures, as well as adapting and learning from said things
  • Fairness: Offer an appropriate exchange for services & ideas that benefit all involved.
  • Effectiveness: Seeking to provide results for all involved that brings them closer to their goals.
