INCENDIA KIDCARE 2.0
As the CrossFitting parents of two little kids (Colton – age 7 and Cameron – age 2), we cannot tell you how much better our WODs have been since supervised babysitting services have been offered in the Incendia KidCare Center. We have travelled to a lot of CrossFit Gyms – around town and around the country and we’ve seen it all when it comes to kids. We have been to gyms that welcome our kids with open arms. We have also been to gyms that have stopped us in the doorway and instructed us not to bring our children inside! We have also been to gyms where one of us will WOD with the class while the other watches the kids and then we switch, resulting in a two hour trip to the gym and we get really excited about gyms that at least have a “kid area” so we can WOD together. We’ve experienced almost every scenario over the years when it comes to the kids: from scary to awesome. We like awesome a lot more than scary!
When we decided to start CrossFit Incendia, we always knew that kids and families would be important. We started with the Kiddie Containment Area, but realized that as we grew, we would need to offer more when it came to kid care. It is our priority to keep kids safe in the gym. We began the Incendia KidCare Center with staffed babysitting services on June 1, 2014. It has been a month of trial and error, but for the most part, we seemed to be staffed during the busiest times. Since we first announced the program at the end of May, we’ve added more than we’ve taken away — and, we’ve only removed times that weren’t attended more than they were attended (the 7pm time slot). We offer this care at a very modest price to try to help recoup some of the costs involved, while encouraging members to use the service and we only charge for children 10 years of age and younger. . The cost for CrossFit Incendia KidCare is $10 per month for one child, $15 per month for two or more children, and daily drop-in rates are $3 per session.
Please remember that children are not allowed in the Main Gym unless 1) they are attending CrossFit Kids Classes or 2) they are with a parent who is watching a child participating in CrossFit Kids Classes. If your child is over the age of 10, we ask that they still sit in the KidCare Center while you WOD so they are not left unattended in the gym. Also, please do not place unattended children in the KidCare Center. If you arrive early to class and it is not yet staffed, please wait with your child until staffing arrives. Additionally, please pick up your children from the KidCare Center within 10 minutes of your class ending.

We hope that you are getting good use of the Incendia KidCare Center and enjoy the value it adds to your WOD. We thank you for helping us keep all the kiddos safe!
