Kids Skill Focus for April - Tumbling

We spend a lot of time in CrossFit Kids prepping them for how to move their bodies purposefully at body weight and eventually under load.  This month we are going to work on some basic gymnastic skills: rolls, cartwheels, & handstands in an effort to build the balance, flexibility, coordination, and midline stabilitzation needed for all the movements in the CrossFit prescription, as well as safe escapes for the times movement strategies fail us.  Knowing how to safely tuck and roll out of fall can be a life saving skill and certainly can help decrease the likelihood of injury in your sport of choice.
