Who can take part?
The Individual competition invites competitors to register and compete in one of five categories. Those categories are Scaled, Intermediate, Rx, Masters (40+) and Teens (15 – 17yrs).
The first segment of the Individual competition will be an online based qualifier which runs from the 5th – 30th June. Competitors will complete workouts released during the online qualifier. Once submitted, their scores will then be ranked and the competitors will be given a national ranking.
The top 32 qualifying individuals from the Scaled, Intermediate and Rx categories, and the top 16 Masters and Teens, will be invited to compete at the Finals event held over 22nd/23rd July in Hamilton at Mystery Creek Events Centre. Competitors will be tested over two days of competition to find the National Champion in each division.
The Team competition invites teams of six, to register and compete in one of four categories. Those categories are Scaled, Intermediate, Rx and Masters (40+). Unlike the Individual competition, there will be no online qualifying competition. Rather, all of New Zealand’s CrossFit Affiliates will be offered the opportunity to register a team. After seven days, remaining spots will be offered to Affiliates who would like to enter multiple teams.
Teams will be invited to compete at the National event held over 21st/22nd October (Labour weekend) in Mount Maunganui at Tect Arena. Competitors will be tested over two days of competition to find the National champions in each division.
