Every year nearly 2 million school aged athletes sustain sports related injuries. Kids between the ages of 5 to 14 account for nearly 40% of all sports injuries. Many of these injuries are non-contact related or due to overuse. These types of injuries can be prevented.
Kitsap CrossFit is proud to present the Bulletproof Athlete Injury Prevention Camps. These week-long camps will provide young athletes with the information and skill set necessary to become more resilient to athletic injuries.
Each camp is 5 days in length and daily session will last 90 minutes. Day one of each camp will kick off with a basic lesson in human anatomy, biomechanics, injury pathomechanics and the principles of injury prevention. Parents and coaches are invited to attend the first class of each camp. Then each session will include:

This event is designed for lifters of all levels. We strongly encourage first time competitors to come out and give the awesome sport of Olympic Weightlifting a shot. Each athlete will be given 3 attempts for a maximum lift in the snatch as well as the clean and jerk. Your lifts will be judged to ensure there are no press outs and that the lifts meet the other requirements of a weightlifting meet.
If you are unfamiliar with the rules of weightlifting check out the IWF Rulebook, we will not follow every letter of the rulebook. The most pertinent pages are 3-5 and 14-16.
Awards: We will present “Spirit of the Meet” awards for the female and male lifters that demonstrate the true spirit of the competition. This is not determined by who lifts the most weight, but by who brings the most energy and fire to the competition. This award will be voted upon by a pre-selected “jury” of spectators and non-competing coaches.
Calling ALL those interested in competing! Kitsap CrossFit will re-open its Competitor’s Class. This class will be open to ANYONE with aspirations of competing. Whether it’s a local throwdown, the Open, Regionals, or the Games; we can and will help you to prepare and improve.
The class will run for 12 weeks and will cost $150. Once you sign up, the first step will be filling out an athlete questionnaire, listing (known) 1 rep maxes on several lifts, benchmark WOD times, and stating a 3, 6, and 12 month goal. These goals will need to be realistic, specific and concise in words and numbers.
We will also identify your strengths and weaknesses so we can develop a plan to strategically work your weaknesses while also maintaining your strengths. You will receive semi-personalized programming that will supplement your regular CrossFit classes and Olympic lifting classes. Classes will meet three times per week on Monday and Wednesday at 6pm and Saturdays at 12pm.
Classes will be coached but not every class will have a high intensity metcon. These classes are times for you to work on skills, increase strength, learn to strategize WODs, and have watchful eyes on you to help you learn, improve, and get you prepared for your competition.
The first 12 week segment will officially start November 4 – January 31 and is geared to prepare you for the Open which should start in March 2014. Those interested should sign up ASAP to get the athlete questionnaire complete so we can build a plan for you when November 1 rolls around.
Here are the days and times that we will be offering classes during the week of the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games, July 22nd – July 27th. We apologize to those of you that are inconvenienced by this schedule. We will post some at home options for those of you who can not make it due to the schedule change. Be sure to watch the action down in Carson, CA as Coach Chris will be competing in the Masters 40-44 Age Group the 23rd-25th.
