The next session begins Sunday, January 4th- March 22nd (12 straight Sundays). We are thrilled with the success of the previous session that we've decided to add Steve's class to the gym curriculum! This program embodies everything that we want and more in a kids program. We want to provide an opportunity for your kids to build confidence, learn the importance of discipline and hard work, develop their athleticism, and learn to live a healthy active lifestyle! If you are wanting to sign your child up for next session, act fast because spots are filling up quickly! We are asking $100 per child (roughly $8 per class plus a winter session t-shirt) and $50 for each additional child per family. **Current gym members will receive a $50 discount** To sign up simply email us at info@doghousecrossfit.com
