Interested in summer programs for your kids? We are offering several different programs for children from Kindergarten through high school.
- Athlete Academy - We will be offering an Athlete Academy this summer. We will be working on a lot of different aspects, such as body movement, body control, conditioning, speed, flexibility, explosiveness, agility, strength, strength while tired, mental stability, metal focus, and the ability to adapt and overcome a situation while tired. We are here to help athletes gain performance. This program is ideal for athletes looking to prepare for an upcoming season and gain an edge. Assessments will be performed at the beginning and the end to measure athlete progress. Classes will be held M/W/F from 10:15-11:15AM.
- CrossFit Kids - CrossFit Kids is for kids ranging from Kindergarten to 5th Grade. CrossFit Kids is a class to get kids excited about exercise, having fun, learning about CrossFit, and how to move consistently well, in a fun and safe environment. Our first session will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:15-11:00 am starting June 6 thru July 6. Our second session will be from Tuesday, July 11 thru Thursday, August 10 from 10:15-11:00 am. Cost is $70 per child per session and will include a t-shirt. Please be sure to let us know what size of t-shirt your child would like.
- Summer Strength and Conditioning -This 6 week Strength Camp is the perfect introduction to Weightlifting & the Olympic Lifts. Boys and girls roughly age 8-13 are invited to learn the progressions of weightlifting under the supervision of CrossFit Level 1 and USA Weightlifting-certified coaches. Begins June 12 and meets 3 times weekly on Mon, Wed, Fri 12:30PM - 1:30PM
The Olympic lifts and their derivatives are the key pieces in training for all activities that require maximal power and speed and it is critical to learn proper technique to improve performance and avoid injuries.
This course is designed to teach athletes how to maximize efficiency in barbell movements. During the course, you will learn proper positions, barbell cycling, principles and techniques for the clean, power clean, snatch, power snatch, press, push press, push jerk, split jerk and thruster. Learning to lift well is a process, and we want athletes to have the tools they need to optimize their biomechanics, crush their personal bests, have longevity throughout their athletic careers, and remain injury free.
Teaching the lifts and performing the lifts are separate skills. Our coaches are not just excellent lifters; they are experienced coaches who have spent years successfully teaching the lifts.
Participants will increase body awareness, improve flexibility, grow strength, increase power output and improve athleticism.
