Patch - GORUCK Tribe Kids (Monthly Subscription)Regular price $10.00
Since the first GORUCK Challenge in 2010, GORUCK has been synonymous with the harder, more adventurous path. To push yourself, and to be pushed. To find meaning in the beauty of shared adventures, to seek challenges that demand growth, to serve something greater than yourself. To be a part of a real community of people pushing each other a little more.
Kids have always been an important part of our GORUCK community - not as bystanders, but as kids who ruck alongside their family. Kids who like and need to lift heavy things. Kids who are looking to be of service to their community.
After introducing Tribe in January 2021, we heard a resounding cry to bring the same type of challenges to kids. As a result, Tribe Kids was born.
We've designed Tribe Kids to encourage children to enjoy the GORUCK way of life: get outside, sweat with your friends and family to stay fit, and find a way to serve something greater than yourself.
May Theme: Seek Memories
A. Stair Ruck. Find a set of stairs and ruck up and down them with your grown up for 21 minutes.
B. "21" (all ages) This month, instead of just one workout, we will do something small everyday to honor the unknown soldiers who have lost their lives in service to their country. Choose 21 days where you do 21 reps of one movement, in honor of the 21 steps that it takes for the Tomb Guards to patrol the "Tomb of the Unknown Soldier."
Alternate between these three movements:
Ruck squats (or Air squats)
Overhead ruck presses
Burpees over the ruck
War Stories By: Gordon Korman (age range here is mature, 11+)
Twenty One Steps: Guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier By: Jeff Gottesfeld and Matt Tavares (age range 10 and under)
All ages: With your grown-up, choose from one of the many suggestions given here on how to commemorate Memorial Day. Some of the ideas that are listed include: Visit a Veterans cemetery, attend a Memorial Day parade or watch one on television. Go to a military history museum or watch a movie about military history. Decide how you will honor those that have died in service to the country.
