Top Resources for Parkour Women

As parkour's popularity grows, so does the collection of resources available for athletes of every level. From tutorial channels to sites like American Parkour, we have a lot of great info at our fingertips. But if you're a woman who trains parkour, you might be looking for something more.

Let's face it. As part of a male-dominated discipline, it's cool to connect with other women in the community, to share experiences, inspiration and advice. Of course, you're always welcome to check out the archives of Rising Traceuse, but there are plenty of other valuable resources out there waiting to be discovered.


1. Traceuse Facebook Groups


At the time of writing this post, you can find dozens of Facebook communities dedicated to parkour women. One of my favorites is "Parkour Girls Across," where ladies from around the world share training videos and discuss training-related topics. You can also find smaller traceuse communities organized by country or region. For example, I'm also a member of "Parkour Feminino Brasil," the biggest Facebook group for Brazilian traceuses. Don't have a women's parkour group for your community? Start one!

2. See & Do


This project by Julie Angel, author of "Breaking the Jump: The Secret Story of Parkour's High-Flying Rebellion," is gold. The site is an excellent place to explore if you're looking for some inspiration, featuring great shots of women in action as well as insightful blog posts.

Tip: Use the hashtags #SeeandDo and #SeeandMove on your training videos to connect with the community.

3. APK Women's Community


American Parkour has always been one of my favorite training resources. The community is all about helping each other out and spreading the word about parkour. Check out APK's Women's Community for a list of upcoming women's meetups and events around the world.

4. She Can Trace


An initiative by Parkour Generations, this resource is specifically targeted at ladies in the UK, but it also includes useful resources for everyone. Check out the blog for some great insights.

Tip: Connect with this community using the hashtag #SheCanTrace.

5. Womens Parkour Movement

A project of the North American Women's Parkour Gathering, this site provides a continually expanding directory of traceuses from all over the world. Bookmark this site to keep an eye out for new WPM community resources that are in the works!

6. Youtube Channels


This classic standby continues to be one of the best ways for traceuses to follow each other's training and progression, even from across the world. It's also a source of constant inspiration. Not sure where to start? Head over to this article for some ideas of badass traceuses to follow on YouTube.


7. Women's Parkour Meetups


From the North American Women's Parkour Jam to smaller, local women's meetups, there are more opportunities than ever to meet and train with other traceuses. Get involved, and get inspired!


These are some of the most important, dependable resources for parkour girls I could find. If I missed any, feel free to let me know and I'll add them to the list. Happy trainings!
