Current training coordinator bios:

My name is Eric 'Ozone' Joyal. I've been training for a little over 3 years now and have recently been named a WFPF Affiliate. I currently run the club as the president and head training coordinator.  I also run a private team Streamline Free Running. I'm a junior at IU studying biology but I hope to only use my degree as a back up and pursue a career in professional free running and coaching younger free runners. I really believe in building a parkour and free running community and love teaching, I've been teaching private lessons for about a year. That's about it


My name is Ryan Black and I've been training parkour and freerunning for 2.5 years now. Currently, I act as a training coordinator for Saturday practices, and also try to do a good deal of the media work for the club. I am a double major here at IU in Telecommunications production and Communication & Culture - where I study democracy and social change. I am currently vice-president of the multimedia company Treeline Creative Media. After college, I hope to expand the media business as well as my skills in parkour and freerunning.

My name is Will Bray has been training for nearly 2 and a half years. I am vice-president and a training coordinator for the Parkour and Freerunning club at IU. I'm in my junior year double majoring in Telecommunications and Communications and Culture, where I spend most of time watching and thinking about movies. I'm an avid climber, and harbor a secret desire to become the Prince of Persia.

Yo, I'm Jake 'Spud' Van Bever and I have been training for a little over a year now. I am currently the treasurer for the club as well as a training coordinator. I work side by side with Eric Joyal on the team Streamline Free Running. I am a freshmen studying Sports Marketing and Management at Indiana University, and I hope to incorporate my studies into a future career in the PK/FR community. I love spreading the PK love anywhere I can.
