Together We Will Endure

CF Kids Policies

October 10, 2017

Dear CrossFit Kids’ Parent, Thank you for your interest in the CrossFit Kids Duratus Program! The commitment to our children’s future is a beautiful, arduous, amazingly nuanced path; myself and the other coaches are excited you have chosen CrossFit DuraKids to be part of it, as CrossFit has changed all of our lives immeasurably for the better. It is with this endeavor I have dedicated a huge part of my heart and life; your child’s safety and opportunity to potentiate their personal lives are my primary focus. On behalf of all of the Duratus coaches, Welcome! I wanted to take this opportunity, now that the CF Kids Duratus Program is official, to introduce myself formally. My name is Sam Nicholson (Coach Flash, Hunter Sam). I am the Director of CrossFit Kids at CrossFit Duratus. I will oversee all kids programming and classes. I started training in CrossFit in January of 2015 and became a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer (CF-L1) in March of 2017 and a CrossFit Kids trained coach in May of 2017. Currently, CF kids classes are offered Sunday’s at 2PM and Wednesday’s at 6PM. Our initial age bracket will include 6-11 year olds. We have plans for preschool age (3-5 year olds) and teenage classes in the works as our program strengthens and grows, so stay tuned. Please note that it is not the age of your child that is the deciding factor for whether or not he or she attends specific age classes. It is largely based upon individual skill, athleticism, and maturity and is ultimately decided upon by the head coach of the gym and the director of the kids program to ensure your child is getting the most out of the CrossFit experience. DuraKids class will last 45-60 minutes. Specifics on goals of training and class time are available upon request. I look forward to getting to know all of you personally and training your children to the utmost of my ability. I will send out more communications in a few weeks. If you have any questions, comments, problems, or concerns, please don’t hesitate to get a hold of me at the following:, 509-710-6875 Sincerely, Sam Nicholson, Director of CrossFit DuraKids

Kids Dūrātus - (Durakids) is about kids having fun! Functional fun! As well, it is providing a strength, conditioning and wellness program as an alternative to the sedentary lifestyle. It is designed to be challenging and socially interactive while delivering broad, general and inclusive fitness to our next generation. The program will not just be about physical fitness, but mental fitness, social fitness, and emotional fitness as well.
Durakids will learn proper functional movements (push, pull, run, jump, lift, throw, climb, etc.) to improve general fitness and prepare for sports resiliency. All workouts will be scalable to meet the exact needs of the individual athlete. Also, current research is showing that exercise is greatly beneficial to cognitive function and learning, leading to success in school as well. Young athletes will also get exposure to discussions on proper nutrition, team work and mental fortitude in a nonthreatening environment.
Safety will be paramount, but FUN and confidence building are what we are here for. Let us help your child lay a sound foundation from which to navigate all that life can throw at them.
