Introducing Strong Girls

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

Our Youth Strength and Conditioning (YSC) program is thriving! We are excited to announce 2 brand new classes to the program — Strong Girls!
Coach Chelsea will be bringing her experience and expertise to coach these new classes starting in April.

Strong Girls - Wednesday at 3:00 pm, ages 8-11
Strong Girls - Wednesday at 4:00 pm, ages 12-15

Strong Girls is a Youth Strength and Conditioning program for girls only. We want to train both our girls’ bodies and minds to be strong. The class entails 35-45 minutes of age appropriate athletic development while allowing 15-25 minutes for some girl talk. The class provides girls with a safe and empowering place to have facilitated discussions about body image, self-esteem, healthy eating, bullying, boys, goals, friendship, sportsmanship, and integrity. The girls will mentor each other, challenge themselves, and grow stronger—together.

The program involves gymnastics elements, running, weightlifting, cardiovascular conditioning and more. This broad approach will develop a base fitness level that will enhance performance in any sport and allow for competent participation in new activities.

Due to the increasing interest in the YSC program, we are also adding another YSC class:

Youth Strength and Conditioning - Tuesdays at 4:30pm, ages 11-15

The goal of the YSC program is to combine fitness with fun and to help kids grow up healthy, strong and develop a lifelong love of working out. These classes are offered in the CrossFit area and are a great way to introduce your child to fitness and a healthy lifestyle.

All YSC workouts are functional and natural and correlate directly to your child’s physical needs in daily life, recreation and sport. Our experienced coaches are incredibly skilled at conveying the importance of lifelong health and fitness in a way that is meaningful and relevant to your child.

Your child doesn’t have to be an athlete to participate. Our training provides an atmosphere that is challenging, motivating and builds confidence. If your child is already athletic, we can help her become a well rounded athlete, excelling in her current sport while staying fit during the off season.

We now offer 7 classes:
Mondays 5pm, ages 11-15 with Coach Patrick
Tuesdays 3:30pm, ages 11-15 with Coach Dana
Tuesdays 4:30pm, ages 11-15 with Coach Chelsea
Wednesdays 3pm, ages 8-11 Strong Girls with Coach Chelsea
Wednesdays 4pm, ages 12-15 Strong Girls with Coach Chelsea
Wednesdays 5pm, ages 11-15 with Coach Patrick
Thursdays 3:30pm, ages 11-15 with Coach Dana

Kids will need to be enrolled in classes and registered for a corresponding monthly plan. See below for pricing:

One class per week $95. per month
Two classes per week $160. per month
Three classes per week $210. per month
Four classes per week $230. per month
Drop-in $26.

A 25% discount for families applies. Class size is limited to 8 kids, but drop-ins will still be allowed if there are open spaces. Enrollment is easy — please either call the office (415) 927.1630 or e-mail me the details at Dana@inthecave.com.

We’re excited about the growth of this program and we look forward to working with you. Remember, class size is limited to 8, so sign up quickly! Please contact me with your questions or comments.
Thanks,
Dana

Youth Strength and Conditioning classes

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

Great groupDid you know The CAVE offers Youth Strength and Conditioning classes?The idea behind the YSC program is to combine fitness with fun and to help kids grow up healthy, strong and develop a lifelong love of working out. These classes are offered in the CrossFit area and are a great way to introduce your child to fitness and a healthy lifestyle.

We currently offer four classes for ages 11+:
Monday @ 5pm with Coach Patrick
Tuesday @ 3:30pm with Coach Dana
Wednesday @ 5pm with Coach Patrick
Thursday @ 3:30pm with Coach Dana

Kids can enroll in classes and pay by how many classes per week they plan on attending. See below pricing:
One class per week is $90 per month.
Two classes per week is $155 per month.
Three classes per week is $200 per month.
Four classes per week is $220 per month.
Drop-in $25
25% family discounts do apply for enrolled classes, not drop-ins. Class size is limited to 8 kids, and drop-ins will still be allowed if there are open spaces. Enrollment is easy — please either call the office (415) 927.1630 or e-mail me the details at Dana@inthecave.com.
By formally enrolling in a class, the coach can better predict the number of kids attending and therefore, provide the best experience possible. In addition, this commitment allows us to set goals for each individual child and progress toward them, which not only helps keep the children motivated to attend, but increases self-confidence when the goals are achieved.
YSC workouts are functional and natural, and correlate directly to your child’s physical needs in daily life, recreation and sport. Our experienced coaches are incredibly skilled at conveying the importance of lifelong health and fitness in a way that is meaningful and relevant to your child.
Your child doesn’t have to be an athlete to participate. Our training provides an atmosphere that is challenging, motivating and builds confidence. If your child is already athletic, we can help them become a well rounded athlete, excel in their current sport, and stay fit during the off season.
Classes are 55 minutes long and consist of a warm up, skill work, metabolic conditioning and stretching. Throughout class, we’ll talk about healthy eating and lifestyle habits. The importance and the benefit of the movements being taught, and how the children can apply them to their daily lives is greatly emphasized.
We’re excited about this program growing and look forward to working further with the youth in our community!
Class size is limited to 8, so sign up quickly!
