What is Open Jam/Free Play?
Open Jam is where our venues are OPEN for you to come and experience at your own pace. We set aside some time during the week specifically for these sessions. They kind of operate like a youth club thats focused on jumping, climbing, bouncing and flipping. Our staff are on hand to help and guide you but there is no class structure. You get to do what YOU want to do. We love these sessions as people of different experience levels get together to train and share knowledge. These sessions regularly attract professional athletes from across the county. Head to OPEN JAM page to find out more.

Acitivties like the ones we provide take years to master. We liek to reward that dedication and effort. We provide several syllabus opportunities for our activities. These are a great way to monitor progress and celebrate progression. Designed specifically for each activity, the syllabus will guide you through each move at your own pace. At regular intervals we will hold assessment days. These allow you to show your skill and move up to the next level of difficulty in your activity.
