A Great School Fundraising Idea!
Call us today to host a Junior BootsTM program, including our Go Obstacles obstacle course training, at your school event.
Far more than just an after-school activity, Hot Ground Gym® has designed Junior Boots program to be a comprehensive kids fitness and educational program that nourishes the development of children from Kindergarten to 8th grade. Junior Boots program offers fun, challenging obstacle course combined with a “never give up” mindset. Team building missions and an encouraging environment makes this class stand out from any other after school activities.
Our kids’ activities structure is guided by our innovative training approach called “5 Dimensional Concept ” (5DCTM). It incorporates the 5 fundamental pillars: Obstacle Course Fitness, Critical Thinking, Teamwork, Leadership, Discipline.
OBSTACLE COURSE FITNESS
The first pillar of the Junior Boots “curriculum” is physical activity. Exercise and play are pivotal in a child’s development. Junior Boots program introduces physical activity in a very fun and creative way by utilizing full-scale obstacles inspired by the military obstacle course, and creative mind of our staff. Each class starts with a light warm-up, stretching, and a skill builder. We then move to the core of the training, which involves obstacle courses such as rope climbing, tire jumps, crawling, wall climbing, monkey bars, and more. Every mission has fun skills and critical thinking drills integrated into the session so they get the best physical and mental stimulation that a kids fitness program can offer. Because our obstacle course for kids is outdoor/indoor, we can host events just about anywhere.
What keeps Junior Boots classes fun, engaging, and educational is more than just the physical element. Yes, all kids like to run around and goof off, but it is the critical thinking, problem-solving, and teamwork elements that really keep them focused. Every Junior Boots class ends with a mission. A mission is a task with a begging and end but we don’t show the middle. Kids required to come up with an action plan and work cohesively to successfully accomplish a mission. We change the missions in our classes every other day to encourage kids to adapt to unfamiliar situations, confront problems head-on, and overcome fear and uncertainty.
Teamwork is really the cornerstone of Junior Boots program. Through cooperation with their teammates and peers, we have seen kids gain confidence, leadership abilities, social skills and great friends. Our classes are very structured and organized around collaboration. Our kids encourage each other, support each other and physically help each other. Unlike martial arts or sports teams, we don’t reward our kids for physical achievements.
We help kids to discover their own leadership voice through our missions. Kids learn on the fly how to develop, communicate and implement a plan of action. Junior Boots helps kids build effective communication skills and a sense of responsibility. Because every child must be both a leader and a follower on different missions, our kids learn both angles. We believe that in order to be a great leader you need first to understand what it takes to follow.
Junior Boots classes are highly structured. Discipline encourages kids to act and react decisively. The goal is to develop an intense focus on the task at hand, and to apply yourself completely, a quality that is essential for both physical and mental sharpness. The discipline is accomplished through “Boot Camp” set up that has an “Action Reaction” effect.
Whether your child experiences Hot Groud Gym through our Junior Boots kids’ fitness or at a school event that has our mobile obstacle course, you’re sure to be impressed with how much they learn and enjoy!
