CrossFit Kids Magazine Volume 3 Issue #30
A CrossFit Football Team Joshua Springs Junior High Jason Rojas “While the success of Joshua Springs football is directly related to the expertise of our coaches and the hard work and dedication of our players, when I arrived two years ago, I felt there was still room for improvement in regards to off-field and off season strength and conditioning programs….” “…The results of incorporating CrossFit into our practice schedule were incredible. That is to say, that our players, despite being smaller, less experienced and for the most part less talented, consistantly outplayed our opposition both individually and as a team.”
An Introduction to the Game Based WOD Robert Ord “…Kids often don’t think of a timed workout in the same terms that adults do;
as a chance to do your personal best. Instead they think of it as a race….What do you do to spark the fire of intensity in young athletes that are still
developing basic skills without degradation in form and possible injury ?”
