Our BoxTOTS program is where our youngest athletes are encouraged to keep the incredible foundation of movement that they were born with, instead of trading it in for learned bad habits. BoxTOTS sets up your child for success in future CrossFit classes or any athletic endeavor they may choose, as well as decrease the risk of injury as they mature. We work on both physical, social, vestibular and cognitive development in the form of games and short skill practice sessions.
Coach Katie begins each 30-min class by encouraging the kids to run, make noise, and to explore the equipment and space safely. Our warm-up tends to focus on specific ways to move through space with an emphasis on those things that are toughest for this age group (two-footed hopping, balance, and control are 3 good examples). We have 1-2 skills to work on during each class (maybe parrot perches to work on stabilization or a game of monkey wars to keep up the awesome grip strength they have). We also work hard to maintain the great habits they were born with. We give names to the things they already do—like squats—and encourage them to continue those wonderful patterns. We end every class with a game that usually involves running. At the end of each month we also include a theme day so the kids can get dressed up and focus on having a blast and getting to know the other kids better.
