Sport Parkour League (SPL) Partners With The United States Parkour Association (USPK)

Sport Parkour League will become an official partner of the USPK Nationals, providing professional consultation with a deep level of integration into key activities of the upcoming USPK Nationals including planning and staging the national competitive event. USPK will also collaborate on original content, including the USPK Sport Parkour Competition Rulebook, standing policies, and more that will affect the upcoming 2023 competition season, reaching an estimated 800+ competitive parkour athletes.

The agreement will provide a unique opportunity for the competitive parkour community to expand as competitions grow and experiment with different formats.

The organization’s event director, Melissa McQueen , says, “The crew at SPL have been setting the bar for parkour competition for years, first with North American Parkour Championships and now with Sport Parkour League. The USPK partnership is a tremendous opportunity to continue to define the future of parkour competition in the US and around the world.”

Co-founder of the Sport Parkour League, Rene Scavington, shares “I’m excited to be finally taking a big step in expanding our capabilities as a sports institution. Partnering with USPK unifies us with the circuits taking place in America and gives us another team of people to help put out the best competition experiences possible. We feel truly fortunate to be bringing our format to the 2023 USPK Nationals and qualify up and coming talent for SPL2.”

Alan Tran, USPK board director, says, “competitive sport parkour is still in its infancy and continues to evolve. As competitions in our sport grow, we aim to develop [sport parkour] in a direction that respects some of the original practice – a sense of freedom, self-empowerment, and adaptability. I know it’ll continue to change as we trial-and-error different competition formats, scoring, and systems.”
