Kevin Nichols talks about how CrossFit Kids encourages young athletes to come together as a team.
Teamwork: the process of working collaboratively with a group of people in order to achieve a goal.
The CrossFit Kids program provides endless possibilities to teach young athletes about teamwork and working together to meet a goal. It also gives young athletes the opportunity to learn trust, risk taking, communication, problem solving and leadership.
Perhaps the best opportunity for young athletes to discover the power of teamwork is during the game. Young athletes want to win that game! They are driven by the desire to succeed. They are given a chance to lead and follow their peers, learning the kinds of communication skills, strategies and problem solving needed to achieve their goal of winning. Success helps kids develop the poise and confidence to tackle challenges inside and outside the gym. They have the opportunity to apply what worked in their game toward other any area that they wish to succeed in, be it academics, friendships or athletics.
