Fise Montpellier: initiations for all ages to pass on the passion for urban sports

Fise Montpellier: initiations for all ages to pass on the passion for urban sports

Des initiations sont dispensées tous les jours au Fise Montpellier. Midi Libre – Dorian Cayuela

Au-delà des compétitions, le Fise dispose de zones d’initiation investies par des clubs ou des entreprises qui proposent aux jeunes de découvrir les sports urbains. Tour d’horizon.

La draisienne avec Kids Riders

Kids Riders introduces children aged 2 to 5 to the balance bike with free and open access on the left bank of the Lez, next to the Chill zone. Last year, 800 children took part in the secure course installed by Lionel, Joe and their team. Saturday and Sunday, two meetings are organized upon registration. "The balance bike is very easy to access, explains Lionel. After a quarter of an hour, the children are riding alone even if they have never done so before. It’is a fabulous tool in terms of motor skills."

Fise Academy and Attitude on scooters, BMX and skateboards

Two local associations, Fise Academy for scooters and bmx, Attitude Montpellier for skate and bmx, alternately offer initiations over 30-minute slots on avenue du Pirée (right bank of the Lez). "The courses are taught by qualified coaches. They are aimed at a young audience, explains Sacha Fesquet, head of the initiation zone for the Fise Academy and professional scooter rider. The idea is to introduce people to urban sports and then join our clubs." The initiation zone is open until Sunday from 10 a.m. at 7 p.m.

CPK introduces parkour

The qualified trainers of Culture Parkour (CPK), the club chaired by Charles Perrière, one of the founders of the famous Yamakasi group, are setting up initiations to parkour, a spectacular discipline which consists of crossing obstacles, from 5 years old, in groups, on Avenue du Pirée. This area is open every day, one slot in the morning and another in the afternoon. Registrations are made at the club stand.
