Mikki Lee Martin outlines some considerations for advancing kids to the next level.
In the CrossFit Kids Course, we discuss three class levels: Preschool (3-5), Kids (6-11) and Teen (12-17). Many official CrossFit Kids programs begin with one age group and grow into a second or third age division. We have experimented successfully with further divisions in age. However, additional divisions are appropriate for more mature programs that are staffed well enough to adequately support them.
A common challenge is knowing when to promote a child to the next class. This article offers some ideas we have found beneficial to consider when making such a decision.
