We need as many registered judges as possible. If you are able and willing to judge please go to the Games site http://games.crossfit.com to complete the Judges Course and let Wendy know when you have completed it - Thank you!
Our athletes that are serious about the competition and attempting to qualify for the Regionals, either as an individual or team member, will need to be videotaped according to submission standards. If you are in this category, and serious about a top 100 spot please make sure that you have your own video camera arranged to record your workout (it must be reliable and have capacity for long workout recording - test it beforehand!). We will be video recording all sessions for quality control purposes but each individual must be responsible for their own submission if required. Please make sure that you know and understand the video submission requirements.
