To all our students, parents and customers, As of June 1st Level Up will be closing and all classes, sessions and events will cease.

Membership payments will be cancelled automatically so no further payments will be taken.

For the last 8+ years it has been our pleasure to teach you and train alongside you in Parkour, Cheerleading and a number of other sports and activities. We are incredibly proud of the thousands of students and members we have had over the years and would like to thank you all for your trust in us and dedication to the sports we have taught you.

Our lease on the building is ending soon and due to steep rises in the costs of industrial units, continued increases in overheads over the last 8 years and the huge fixed cost of closing/moving premises, we are unable to see a way we can continue to financially run Level Up Academy, and as such have taken the difficult decision to shut down the academy.

As many of you know us personally know, we have run the academy as a not for profit from the beginning and kept membership costs as low as possible to ensure the maximum accessibility of the sports we value so highly. This has been, more than anything, a labor of love and we wouldn’t have had it any other way. We are incredibly proud of our achievements as coaches  the amazing journey of our athletes and in the way we have run our business.

We could not have done this without the continued, incredible support from all of you and we thank you sincerely for joining us on this journey.

Whilst there are currently no immediate plans to continue our coaching provision, we are investigating some possible options. Although we do not have information right now on these possibilities, if you are interested in hearing about continued parkour opportunities in Leeds, please make sure to fill out the interest form linked in our bio or at and on our website so that we can inform you as and when they may arise.

We hope that we have inspired you to continue your training and wish all of you the best.

“Etre fort pour être utile” – Be strong to be useful.

 Sincerely, Jim, Martin, Rick, Ben, Laura, Cameron, Shannon, Jacob, Georgina, Adam, Lauren And the whole of the Level Up Academy.
