What is CrossFit Kids and Teens all about?
Ages: 7-11* Kids/Pre-Teens 10-10:30 AM
The skills addressed introduce and expand the majority of CrossFit’s foundational and auxiliary movements and the time frame extends to accommodate the developing abilities of kids in grades K-6. The goal of the CrossFit Kids program is to develop and improve general physical fitness in order to prepare kids to be safe in sports (and life in general). But, despite the increased physical demands of the class, the focus of the Kids program is still on FUN.
Ages: 10*-17 Teens Sport Performance 10:40-11:40 AM
Our teens and Pre-teens programs have one major goal in mind- PERFORMANCE. This program will teach your teenager how to be explosive and powerful in whatever athletic endeavor they choose to participate in and is the perfect bridge between the “fun” of the CrossFit Kids class and the intensity of the CrossFit. The workouts are more performance based and light loads are introduced all with the goal of preparing the athletes for the rigors of sport and the next level of CrossFit all in an age appropriate setting that will allow the athlete to thrive. On top of that, because the workouts are constantly varied, they are less likely to fall prey to the overuse injuries that plague common training routines and year-round sports.
*Recommended age but is dependent on cognitive and physical maturity level.
