Where is a good place to practice in phoenix?
« on: May 13, 2010, 10:54:11 AM »
i live at 40th st and union hills and then sometimes at 11th ave and bell, i was just wondering if there are any spots around that are good to practice at. I know that local parks are good because of the playground equipment but I'm having trouble finding a good place that has rails to vault and walls to climb and etc.

I'm 5'4" and im 18 years old, i don't know if that would change anything.

Sweet dude! There's about 3 or 4 of us who practice around Phoenix every week. There are a few places we train, one of which is up at 16th st. and Union.

So yeah, we train every Saturday afternoon; drop me a text if you want to join us some time, or just reply to this thread; we'd love to have another person to train with. And don't worry about your height or age lol, that's not a big deal at all.

623 302 6573 is my number. Hope to hear from you man.

We fluctuate, but here's a list of the places we train most frequently:

Buffalo Ridge Park on 16th st. & Union Hills
Phoenix First Assembly church on Cave Creek &... Greenway, I believe
Everywhere around Metrocenter Mall
The apartment complexes and business places north of Metrocenter

Oh, nice! That was my next question lol, cause my car is already pretty full with everybody else.

So yeah, definitely let me know when you guys wanna join. Don't worry about being a beginner, another guy just started training with us like a week ago, so it's cool.

We typically train around 6 or 7 pm, just to let you know.

Cool, man! That's not too far from where we generally practice. Do you have transportation that can get you around to other spots to train with us?

I've never trained at PV, but Metro is pretty solid. We train over there quite frequently, as well as at the apartments across the street. Would you be able to make it to Metro?
