Welcome!

Who We Are
The Leavenworth Jaywalkers is the oldest Volksport club in Kansas.  We host American Volkssport Association sponsored walking, biking, swimming, and cross-country skiing events in the Leavenworth, Kansas area.

What is Volksport?
Volkssporting simply defined, is a personal fitness sports and recreation program offering noncompetitive walks, hikes, bike rides, swims, and in some regions cross-country skiing and roller or ice skating. You may choose your time to start within the start/finish “window” and participate in the sport at your own pace.  This low impact exercise is fun and is ideal for all ages, athletic abilities, and fitness levels.

Volkssporting in the United States is sponsored by the American Volkssport Association (AVA) which has over 320 active clubs presenting thousands of volkssporting events each year.

Walks are also available around the world, making it the ideal activity for those who love to travel or are in the military.

Club Fees
In the spirit of Volkssport, we keep club fees low so that all may participate - only $5 per year for an individual or family.  To earn credit for walks or to receive medals for walks completed, a fee must be paid per walk.  The cost is low - usually $2.00 to $10.00 at most.
