See below for registration FAQ's:
Do I have to do the Online Qualifier?
This is somewhat of a complicated answer, but we'll try and make this clear as possible. The only people that are required to compete in the Online Qualifier are those that wish to compete as "Pros" in either the Individuals or Teams divisions at the Championship in November. These folks will sign up as Rx in the Online Qualifier, and the top placers (number TBD) will be invited to compete as Pro's in November.
Outside of the requirement for the Pro divisions, top placers in each division of the Online Qualifier will get prizes from our sponsors. Additionally, invitations to sign up for the Championship will be sent in the order of Online Qualifier placement. For example, invitations will be sent to the top 12 in the Rx division and given a certain amount of time before invitations are sent to placers 13-25.
Long story short, plan on doing the Online Qualifier if you want the best odds at competing this November. If you don't, you risk someone else taking the spot!
Which should I choose, Rx or Open?
The Rx division is meant for athletes that can do pretty much all CrossFit workouts as prescribed and at a decently high level of weight and intensity. These athletes can do muscle ups, chest to bar, handstand push ups and HS walks, pistols, and standard prescribed weights. Open division athletes can do some, but not all prescribed movements. Pull ups, toes to bar, wall walks, and standard weight wall ball and box jumps will be required. Weights will be slightly reduced. For Rx teams - We suggest that at least one male and one female can do muscle ups (bar and ring). Otherwise, you may not be able to compete in a workout at the Championship. See this load list for suggested weights/movements.
How will Teams register and submit scores?
Teams will consist of 2 males and 2 females. At registration, you will be asked for 4 names and emails. If you don't have names/emails at registration, you can use fake ones and put the real ones in at a later time. Workouts in the Online Qualifier can be done individually, or together as a team. Ultimately, the scores will be given to the Team Captain who will submit each of his or her team member's scores, A+B+C+D. It is imperative that each score is entered accurately for the team score to compile correctly. Scorecards will be supplied for each workout and we highly suggest using them to maintain accurate scores.
Do I have to video my workout?
Videos are required for all athletes & teams that will be in contention for Pro invitation spots (Top 12-14 male/female individuals from the Rx division and top 6-7 teams in the Rx division). Teams must have a video of each athlete, which can be done individually or with multiple athletes performing the workout on the same screen. If an athlete or team cannot supply video proof of the requested workout within the time period provided during the validation period following the Online Qualifier, they will forfeit their spot/prize.
If you fit the criteria above for having to provide a video, a video link must be provided at score entry in the form of a Youtube, Google Drive, Vimeo, etc. link. Please make sure the video is "shared" properly and has the following required elements:
The athlete is performing the workout on the screen the entire time
The athlete shows the weights before or after the workout
A clock is shown on the screen
