CF KIDS ROOM RULES


We have the largest and longest running (and most successful, if we don’t say so ourselves) CrossFit Kids Program in the Tampa Bay Area.  We have a special room they “hang out in” until their coach comes to get them for their class and then releases them back into the room for their parents to pick them up.  We are lucky enough to have this secure and air-conditioned space with tables for coloring or playing games or watching videos (yes we have wifi!).

This room is and can also be used for paretnes who have kids at ages they can sit by themselves and play while mom and dad train. There is a large windown that opens up to the gym so kids can see parents and parents can see kids!

While we feel this is a luxury (to have a whole room, air conditioned 300 sf room), it can also be a curse.

Can you believe the following has occurred?

  • dangerous rough-housing
  • “scaring” younger kids also residing in this room
  • food and drink spilled and not cleaned up
  • toys being thrown around, stools overturned, “forts built on top of and around other kids”
  • doors left wide open with AC turned on
  • lights flipped on and off repetitively to bother other kids in the room
  • kids leaving the room to:
    • found vandalizing the shower bathroom in the adjacent room
    • roam the entryway and front yard
    • chase balls ACROSS THE STREET without supervision
    • fetch water without a parent (walking through the adult gym area)

We don’t need to go on, but we could.

We need your help. As parents, this room is the ability for you to train while your kids hang tight for just an hour. Please obtain a list of the Kids Room Rules (they’re in the Kids room – please ask and we’ll get them for you) and review them with your kids. We’ve never had issues like we’ve had of late and we’re sure together we can get things under control.

The coaches have all been instructed that they have the authority to enforce the kids room rules, which will most commonly be taking the parent out of the WOD to deal with any issues in the room with their kiddos.

We’re concerned about his as while this issue was peaking, Coach Nic had to cut off a Pre-Teen Class after 15 minutes because the kids were “disrespecting each other and her”. We have rules at Rebels and sometimes when we’re too slack in enforcing, things get out of control. We’re asking for your help as we tighten up the rules

As a result of all of “THIS”…which truly means time the coaches are away from the class managing this new chaos, we’ve removed the toy boxes – not more toys in the room – at least for a month or so until we get things under control again.

THE BASICS OF THE “KIDS ROOM”

We have some rules for this room to keep the kids safe and secure.

  • No food or drink in this room, please. Kids can have closed water bottles, but that’s it. It’s always going to be the case where we food is spilled or crumbs left on the floor. We’re an open-air warehouse – crumbs -> bugs! It’s one hour – they can handle it.
  • No running back and forth in and out of the room. Once in the Kids Room, please instruct your kiddos they must stay in there until you come and get them….this includes now having to disallow them to use the shower bathroom through RebelHealth without being accompanied by an adult. During the 6 & 7 pm classes, that shower bathroom almost has appeared vandalized (footprints on top of the toilet seat, toilet paper dispenser dismantled, rugs put in the shower stall…coaches will now be enforcing them without any hesitation). 
    • Please take your kids to the restroom before you or they train. Unfortunately, due to some misuse, we can no longer allow the kids to go back and forth through the RebelHealth room to the shower/restroom unaccompanied.
  • Children need to play politely together. No throwing toys, stools or anything in the Kids Room.
  • Parents need to ensure that they help their kids leave the room neat and tidy. Please clean up after your kid(s) when you collect them to leave.
  • Lastly, however odd this may sound, if kids stand on the benches to watch their parents train through the window, please advise them NOT TO PICK THE PAINT OFF THE WINDOW SILLS….update, and now the doors! The kids’ room door to the gym is now a new art project.  Please help us stop this!

Thank you for your cooperation!
