Hey, guys. I'm going to be going to UMBC in a couple of semesters. I don't think they have a parkour club there, so I was thinking of starting one. Any advice I can get from you guys about starting/running a club?

1.) Be respectful to the police. If they have issue with you practicing, don't practice.

2.) Be respectful to the flow of traffic in your school. Don't accidentally collide with anyone.

3.) Register with your school as soon as possible, try to find a sympathetic staff member to sponsor you (if necessary).

4.) Generally, how intense or casual you are is really up to you. Our club at UMCP is casual. If you can secure gym space though, you can be more intense. If you can't secure gym space, there's no strong need to become official, imo.
