CrossFit Specialty Course: Educators

The CrossFit Specialty Course: Educators is a continuing-education opportunity designed to inform, inspire, and outfit classroom teachers with tools to implement CrossFit methodology to K-12 students in an age-appropriate way. This two-day course combines elemental information from the CrossFit Level 1 Certificate Course and the CrossFit Specialty Course: Kids to provide both a foundational knowledge of CrossFit and a framework for teaching students how to move well, increase their fitness, and facilitate effective learning throughout the school day. This course is hosted on campus to allow a large number of staff within the school district to participate and can be specifically structured to focus on either the elementary/middle-school or middle/high-school levels in order to provide the most thorough and relevant information to particular participant needs.
