Apologies for the delay in this announcement, we are still in catchup mode after the Tropical Tango Throwdown competition we had over the weekend.
Tamariki CrossFit will be starting up again next week for 6 weeks then we take a 4 week break over christmas and new years.
If you are interested in registering your child (if they arent already registered with sessions remaining), then please email us back with the following details to get them in the system.
Please note that spots are limited as safety is of importance here. So we usually work on a first come first serve basis and your spot is not guaranteed till you have paid.
Fees are $50 for 12 sessions to be used over 3 months. New registrations this time round will have 3.5mnths expiry to account for the long 4 week break.
Tamariki Pikiaka (4-8yrs) – you must choose only 1 weekday
Saturday 8:30am (stadium usually)
Tamariki Uto (8-13yrs) – an additional weekday class may be started depending on numbers.
Tamariki CrossFit is a program designed for children ages 3-13 and combines gymnastics, body weight calisthenics, and weight lifting elements (key word being elements). It helps them engage and develop a lifelong love of being physically active. It is designed for kids and their specific development needs – neurological, cognitive, motor.
It is based on the principle of Mechanics, Consistency and then Intensity, Tamariki CrossFit emphasizes good movement throughout childhood and adolescence. Consistently good mechanics translates to physical literacy, enhanced sports performance and fewer sports injuries for kids. Not only that, a vast body of research indicates that exercise is beneficial to cognitive function, which means consistent adherence to the program can have a positive impact on children’s academic achievement.
Tamariki CrossFit is meant to be BIG fun for all ages. Broad-Inclusive-General fun. Fun means we provide an active alternative to sedentary pursuits, which means less childhood obesity and all-around better health for our children. Further, the needs of second graders and college rugby players differ by degree and not kind; the program is scalable for any age or experience level and accounts for the varied maturation status one can find in a class full of kids.
