Why Should I Test?
Passing a test unlocks additional classes (listed below). Failing a test reveals strengths and weaknesses, so you’ll know what you need to work on. Also, it’s FUN!
Unlock the following classes by passing the Level 4 advancement test:
- Advanced Parkour
How to Test
Open your ZenPlanner app and register for the test the same way you would for normal classes. Then just show up as you normally would for a class.
The Level 4 advancement test is being administered on the following dates:
- Sunday, June 16th at 3pm
- Friday, December 13th at 7:30pm
Each skill is scored from 0 to 10 points. In order to advance, students must accumulate a minimum of 168 points out of 210 total points, this equates to an average score of 8 or better on each skill. Any skill scored 0-2 will be an immediate failure, so be sure you review each skill and ask a coach if you have any questions
