RELEASE FROM SAVANNAH CHRISTIAN PREP SCHOOL:

Joshua Kelley, rising 9th grader here at SCPS, has qualified to compete as a Junior Varsity athlete in the National Teen Gauntlet. This competition for CrossFit Kid athletes is held at the 2013 Reebok National CrossFit Games in California on July 26-28. Joshua is one of only 12 elite athletes from all over the country invited to compete in his age category. 

The ULTIMATE in fitness games, this annual competition for fitness athletes requires an exclusive invitation based on previous competitions and becoming a top ranked athlete. 

This success for Joshua is outstanding, but is in no way a surprise as he is the son of Doyle Kelley Jr. who was an Ashley Dearing Award winner at SCPS back in the late '80's.  Joshua is also the grandson of Doyle Kelley Sr. who recently retired from coaching and as the Upper School Principal at SCPS.  

Under the direction of Chris Spurlock, Assistant Middle School Principal and Assistant Baseball Coach, Chris has led the way for the school in developing an outstanding CrossFit program and ensuring our staff are trained and certified CrossFit instructors.  Take a look at their program's site. http://scpscrossfitinspiration.weebly.com/index.html

In addition, SCPS has been nationally recognized as "The Perfect Program" by the creators of CrossFit who had video produced to use as the example in encouraging other schools to consider this very successful type of fitness program for PreK-12th grade schools.
