Of course, there are more active communities than these, but these are just the major groups in the state. If I have forgotten a group (especially out west, the east is mainly covered), please send me a Personal Message (http://www.americanparkour.com/smf/index.php?action=pm;sa=send;u=54212), and I will be in contact with you about potentially adding you to the list.

If you are new and interested in training with someone near you, contact the representative of the community closest to you. You can send either a PM or email, and they will get into contact with you about meeting up and possibly training. If you do not live in close proximity to these communities, you can still feel free to contact any one of us, and we will do our best to get you into contact with someone who lives near you.

In an effort to make this state a more community-run and community-structured group, we will also be utilizing the Pennsylvania Parkour Facebook Page (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2320157197) much more than we have in the past. This will come into play more frequently towards the spring and summer, but keep that in mind, and become a member of the group if you aren't already. More to come in efforts to increase Pennsylvania's role in the national parkour scene!
