CrossFit Playground is extremely proud to be offering CrossFit Kids as of January 1, 2019. Our CrossFit Kids program introduces children to the importance of physical fitness and reinforces healthy nutritional habits.
Our program is divided into two age groups:
Fire Breathers – Ages 5-7
Dragons – Ages 8-12
* A child’s advancement from Fire Breathers to Dragons is largely based on skill over age.
Our Fire Breathers program has played a very important role in establishing healthy practices and movement patterns in young children. We largely focus on building strong core stability through body weight movement and introduce the foundational components of power lifting and Olympic lifting. Fire Breathers engage in fitness through group activities, challenges, and games. They are largely rewarded for their effort, by their coaches, and their progress. We’re so proud of our program and how it has benefited our Youth members.
Our Dragons program is designed to introduce the principles of CrossFit to Kids which includes but is not limited to weightlifting, gymnastics, and metabolic conditioning. Our approach to training becomes a little more advanced, although we still have fun engaging in challenges or games, individually, with a partner, or with a team. Dragons are encouraged to work well with others to reach a common goal. They take on roles in leadership, but also learn to be a team player. They develop confidence, a love for their bodies, and a love for their community. In a world of instant gratification, they learn the benefits of hard work and dedication.
All of our youth programs introduce strength and stability methods that are important for injury prevention. So many sports related injuries are caused by kids playing in unilateral sports at high intensity without first developing the proper strength. Though we design our programs to be a lot of fun, we take the foundation building aspect of strength and conditioning seriously.
