Jr and Jr. Varsity Program (5-9 and 10-12 yrs)
The Jr Varsity program is our youth program for 6-10 year olds. Using a combination of calisthenics, running, rowing, jumping, throwing, carrying, pushing, pulling,climbing and lifting (the stuff we all used to call ‘play,’) we get kids to LOVE exercise. We use age-appropriate skills, challenges, and loads. We challenge kids in a fun and progressive way. We build a foundation for physical literacy that can be applied to their own sport, life or in our Sr Varsity program in the future .
Sr. Varsity Sport Performance (ages 13-17)
This class takes all of the fundamental movement patterns, base strength, mobility, and team development and starts to ramp things up toward specific athlete goals. We add more serious strength training, cross-training, gymnastics, and agility. Our focus is on excellent form above all else. We still have fun but no longer incorporate kid-type games at the end of each class.
How Will This Program Benefit Your Teen:
- Performance (explosiveness, power, strength, agility, endurance, speed)
- Functional Fitness (teach healthy motor patterns with lifetime benefits)
- Form (proper technique= safety in weight rooms, full range of motion)
- Constantly Varied (defends against overuse injuries common in any given sport)
- Mobility and Nutrition (improve recovery, self-care, create good life-long fitness habits
Sr Varsity (single session each week only)
Sr. Varsity prepares teens for all-around athleticism. They get stronger, faster, more powerful, and more flexible. They learn about performance nutrition, and get set up to be an ‘athlete for life,’ whether within CrossFit, another sport, or just a fitter adult.
Varsity also delivers valuable lessons about life: hard work, character, courage and overcoming adversity. Many call it “the sport for kids who don’t play sports,” because it’s also fun. John Ratey, author of Spark! and brain researcher at Harvard, referred to CrossFit Kids programs as ‘collaborative competition,’ because kids cheer for one another.
