Once an athlete has completed the Kickstarter programme, they will graduate to this 12 month development programme. The Accelerate programme will cover advanced levels of parkour training and continue to develop the core principles, values and leadership skills of parkour.

Accelerate is a 1 year programme where athletes will work
towards our new skills awards system, delivered via our brand new SKILLS DAY. Skills days will see our athletes come together to complete mini challenges based on the training they have taken part in in class. Following successful completion of each skills day, athletes will be awarded our brand new bespoke TUF wrist bands and certificates to celebrate achievement of levels.
