This is something to consider. We just started doing them last month and have already scheduled our third one. No advertising outside of our facility, just within. It seems like a great way to get exposure (parents coming in).

Parties are easy to do. They are a great way to build a CrossFit Kids program and get parents interested.

They are very easy to run, and can pretty much cover the rent. I'm hoping that this will be a way for us to get our kids program going.

We are working on a DVD that will have several of games on it. Games are an integral part of the Crossfit Kids program. We have at least one in every Kids magazine. Adapting them to parties is fairly easy.

Another idea for kids parties, is something like 'Fear Factor' challenges. You can get them doing physical challenges and because kids like messy eating ~ use your imagination... I've seen this work with a MA club I used to belong to.
