CrossFit Kids is not simply a scaled down version of CrossFit, it is entirely absolutely geared and designed for a special population and the specific developmental needs of that population. (Neurological, cognitive, motor)
Why do we have rules?
Our Rules exist to keep all of our kids and Teens safe.
Form and correct technique is our number one prioirty and always comes first.
All children are asssessed as to whether they are ready for a Crossfit Kids and Teens program and assigned to the appropriate age group. The age group is not necessarily based on the age of the child but more the maturity, skill level and ability to understand and listen.
1. HAVE FUN: Our most important rule! Everyone is here to have fun through movement and play.
2. LISTEN TO YOUR COACHES: We ask that all our CrossFit kids and Teens listen to their Coaches. They are here to help and guide them through the correct technique and movement to ensure everyone is kept safe.
3. ENCOURAGE OTHERS: Crossfit kids should use encouraging words to themselves and others.
4. NO PLAYING ON THE EQUIPMENT DURING CLASS UNLESS INSTRUCTED: There will be time to play after the class, we ask that all CrossFit kids only use equipment during the class as they are instructed.
5. HAVE FUN: Our most important rule, we just thought we would mention it again!
6. WE NEVER SAY 'CAN'T': We always give everything a go. There is nothing we cannot have a go at, we will improve every time we practice. Your coaches are here to support and encourage you to try everything at your own pace.
7. WE NEVER LEAVE THE GYM DURING CLASS WITHOUT PERMISSION: All CrossFit kids must remain in the designated area during class time. Check with your coach before leaving the area.
8. FREEZE: When you hear the word 'Freeze' or if the whistle blows....it means 'STOP' what you are doing and listen to your coaches.
9. HAVE FUN: You can never have too much fun!
10. IF YOU BREAK THE RULES: If the rules get broken all kids get 1 chance to show their coaches they can listen, the first time will result in a warning from coaches, the second time will result in a child missing 2 minutes of the game and if disciplinary issues still exist the child may be asked to leave the class.
