      After School FAQs

      It depends on the coaches’ plan for the day, what skills will be practiced, and what the weather is like. We recommend planning for a mixture of indoor and outdoor.

      A water bottle, comfortable clothes to move in, movement footwear, rain gear (if it’s rainy), and a readiness to participate and learn!

      If your child has completed the Level 2 skills in the passbook or passed our Level 2 test then yes! If not, then our Level 1 program is the right choice. It teaches our students the fundamentals of parkour and helps guide them to develop their social and emotional skills further. If your child has taken parkour classes elsewhere, they still need to pass our Level 2 test in order to enroll in Level 2.

      If your child is currently enrolled in classes with us, please check in with your coach. Otherwise, please email info@kongacademy.org to set up a time to take the test.

      Our parkour after-school program runs in seasonal sessions – between 10 and 13 weeks depending on the season. If you need to cancel your child’s registration, please contact us in writing via email at least 2 weeks prior to the start of the upcoming session. A full refund minus a $50 admin fee will be provided.

      For cancellations made less than 2 weeks before the start of a session, a 50% refund will be issued. Once a session has begun, no refunds will be provided for missed classes.

      We do allow makeups – if your child needs to miss a class, we will offer a makeup token that can be redeemed for any other class during that session.


      If the program needs to be cancelled on our end before a session starts, you will receive a full refund.


      Please let us know if you have any questions! We aim to make cancellation and makeup policies as flexible as possible while keeping our high-quality programming running smoothly.

      Yes, you can transfer to another class at no additional cost provided there is space available. Just sent an email to info@kongacademy.org to see which classes have space.

      Yes, we do! Please email info@kongacademy.org with your story and why you’re in need of a scholarship. We will get back to you as soon as we can.

      We offer makeup classes as well as seasonal makeup events, so we do not provide discounts or refunds for missed classes. Our make up policy as listed on 6crickets is: “If your child will miss a class, please notify us 24hrs in advance to qualify for a make up option. Your makeup is valid for as long as the season they are enrolled, it does not carry over to future seasons. If you do not notify us in advance then your missed class is not eligible for a make up. Make up options are dependent on class availability and may not always be possible. Once you schedule a make up, it is final and you cannot reschedule the make up.“

      Unfortunately, we don’t offer sibling discounts. Many of our students are siblings and as a small business, we aren’t able to offer that during this time. However, we do offer scholarships if your family is experiencing financial hardship.
