Watch this!  What the heck you people who have troubles with twisting and whipfulls.  These guys make it look like child's play. ha

Every once in a while I find a video that I think might be motivational so I post it.

I just started working with some Crossfit competitors and this video caught my attention.  Remember, just because you are the parent of an athlete there is no reason why you can't train like one too.

Canuk Cup Interclub Tumbling Invitational

Sorry to be slow getting these results and pictures up here on the blog.  It's been a busy week and a half since the Canuk Cup Interclub Tumbling Invitational.

Demonstration Tumblers:
Barrett Manjak

(I have no picture, if someone has one please forward it to me, Don, and I will post it here)

Interclub Junior category:

This category was huge.  Everyone did really well.  If an athlete who competed is not written here that is because they didn't place in the top 8 score getters on that pass or overall.  The category had 17 bodies in it so to make it to the top 8 was hard to do.  Congratulations to everyone who competed.

We will be training Sunday, March 13th.

Canuk Cup Interclub Competition Schedule

Here is the schedule for the Canuk Cup Interclub Power Tumbling Invitational.  Yes, we know it is very late coming out.  We have no control over when the schedule is distributed.  We received it today and made paper copies for everyone.  You should have received it or will receive it soon.  You can save the image from here and print the schedule as if it were a picture if you need a paper copy in your hands.  Thanks for your understanding.  Know that competition schedules are often last minute as the host waits until all registrations are in as the schedule is created based on the number of kids competing in a given category.
