CROSSFIT KIDS VARSITY
Classes are for upper elementary and middle school-aged kids who move well and demonstrate a capacity for basic CrossFit skills. All fitness levels are welcome at CFK Varsity, though 8-9 year-old kids who are inexperienced in movement and fitness may benefit from the basic movements and concepts offered in our CFK Juniors course.
Each 40-50 minute CFK Varsity class will feature: 1) a significant warm-up; 2) specific skill work including gymnastics and body weight movements, as well as introductions to general barbell and weightlifting work (deadlift stances, front-rack positions, med-ball cleans, etc.); 3) a daily WOD; and 4) a game or other event to reinforce newly acquired skills.
CFK Varsity participants need to have demonstrated familiarity with group settings and collaborative teamwork, as well as the ability to be coached and follow directions. Classes are integrated, with kids as young as 7 or 8 years old with advanced skill level working alongside older classmates who are ready to begin weight training. Capacity, attention-span, and attitude, above age or raw ability, are the best predictors of when a child will enjoy and succeed in CFK Varsity classes.
CrossFit Fringe coaches will also be scouting and developing CrossFit Kids participants in hopes of offering a CrossFit Teens program at the box soon.
