Summer 2018 – Youth Classes at CFT

Starting Monday, June 18th CrossFit Tides will have Summer Kids, Middle School, and High School CrossFit Classes.


Looking forward to getting your kids moving and in shape this summer? We are gearing up for summer with a new program for kids, middle school, and high school athletes. The goal of our kids program is to have young athletes create a positive association with physical activity.

If you are looking for a fun supportive and productive summer activity for your child look no further.


About the Programs

Our kids program focuses on mixing fun with fitness. The kids will learn proper mechanics, build social skills, and challenge their cognitive development in a safe and supportive environment. This program is geared for kids ages 5-10.

The High School and Middle School Programs share a common goal of increased athletic performance by making the athletes more explosive, more powerful, and stronger. This prescription is ideal for increasing confidence, or preparing for next year’s season. By scaling speed, volume, load, and intensity, we can make each session appropriate for an elite high-school athlete and a teen simply looking to develop an active and fit lifestyle.

Middle school 10-13 or 5th-8th

High school 13-18 or 9-12th
