The 2011 CrossFit Games Open begins on Saturday March 19that CrossFit NWA! The 2011 CrossFit Games Open will select regional competitors using an “Open Sectional” format. Starting on Tuesday March 15th, a workout will be announced each week for six weeks. The following Saturday CrossFit NWA will host a Sectional Qualifier for that workout. This year the CrossFit Games Open allows any affiliate to host a “sectional style” event for each qualifying WOD, and that’s exactly what we’re doing!
Athletes will complete the workout under the supervision and judging of CrossFit NWA trainers and other qualified judges. Athletes will then submit their scores to the 2011 CrossFit Games Open website and CrossFit NWA will verify them.
Final details on the Open Sectional have yet to be announced by CrossFit HQ. However, you can be assured of a few things:
CrossFit NWA will offer the qualifying workout each Saturday at 4 PM. CrossFit NWA will “opt-in” each week as a qualifying affiliate to validate your score.The qualifier will be run like a competition, not a regular WOD. There will be no group warm up, skill work, or mobility work. Athletes will warm up on their own before their heats.Competitors will be required to register each week in order to participate. Visiting athletes are welcome to participate in the qualifier by paying a $10 registration each week. You can register by dropping in and signing up each week or via e mail.Spectators are welcome to come watch, cheer, and support, but should not register unless they plan to compete or volunteer. No fee for spectators, of course.We need volunteers! If you are willing to help with scoring, equipment, parking, and a myriad of constantly varied tasks then please. But please do not register as both a competitor and volunteer.Registration will be limited to 50 competitors each week, so register early to secure your spot.Each week after the WOD is announced by CrossFit HQ we will announce the WOD on crossfitnwa.com.Affiliate teams qualify for regionals this year based on placement of their individual team members. Therefore, any athlete wishing to compete on the CFNWA affiliate team must compete as an individual in the Sectional workout each and every week.We take consistency in judging seriously. Each athlete will be assigned an individual judge for his workout. All judges will attend a judges meeting each week to discuss the WOD, ranges of motion, and rep/no rep requirements. Judges will receive another final brief each Saturday morning and receive pre-formatted score cards for each competitor. Arguing with your judge about a rep will not be tolerated.All athletes will be briefed on ranges of motion, rep/no rep requirements, and scoring prior to the workout..Each week’s qualifier will be a fun, supportive, and fair atmosphere for completing your qualifying WOD
March 3rd, 2011
We are 10 days away from the first sectional WOD being posted. We are still planning on hosting all six WODS. All will be Saturday at 4:00 at CF NWA. With that being said I will need every outside athelete (not CF NWA member forwe will have a sign up sheet)that is going to attend to send me an e mail every week stating your intent. This will help me get an accurate head count of how many athletes and the number of judges I will need. Please bare with me as this is obviously our first time at hosting such an event. MORE TO COME.....
February 15th 2011
We are 30 days away from "Open Sectionals". I encourage everyone to come in and complete the wods. CF NWA is planning hosting each weekly posted WOD (if approved by HQ) on Saturdays at 4:00 pm. Thiswill be open to the public or other CrossFitters wanting to get their workout certified. I will update everyone on the details as I get them.....TheGames are upon us..

The next Affiliate Competition is going to be here atCrossFit TNT on Saturday, February 12th, 2010!
I know we just finished the Heart of America Challenge but it’s never too soon to start thinking about the next competition!I think we all have been learning as we go, from ourselves & each other as we‘ve been both hosting & attending our local affiliate competitions.I think it’s really amazing how these competitions have grown & how much everyone is improving.We are going to try a few new things this time around & hopefully it makes things run smoother.There are some things you will want to know about the next Affiliate Comp. so you can prepare.
First, it’s on a Saturday.Having the competition on a Saturday allows you a day to rest if you did compete & allows the Box that is hosting, a day to clean up, rest, re-group for Monday morning.
Second, there will be only 2 teams allowed per box.It’s hard not to let every person compete that wants to, but as we keep growing, we are going to have to set a limit or these competitions will turn into circuses.We can have 2 RXd teams, 2 scaled teams, or 1 of each.
Third, we are going to set guidelines as to what qualifies someone as an RXd athlete.An RXd athlete can complete the following “Girls” WODs RXd;Cindy, Elizabeth, Fran, Grace, Helen, Isabel, Jackie, Karen, Nancy, Annie, Eva, & Kelly.So, there should be no question when forming teams, either they are RXd or they are not.As a side note - an RXd athleteshouldbe able to (but isnotrequired to) complete at least one rep of each of the following movements;muscle-up, handstand push-up, rope-climb.
This might change where some of you are placed.Someone who competed RXd before, may not be doing so at the next competition.But, we hope this accomplishes a few things: athletes feel challenged to master those few skills that they suck at, solid teams that are ready for whatever is thrown at them, & no guesswork trying to figure out if are ready for RXd or not.
Fourth, we will have 2 teams of 6 athletes, 3 men & 3 women.
Finally, there will be an individual competition as well.We won’t put a cap on the number allowed to compete as individuals unless it gets crazy.FYI – the individual competition will be great for those who are thinking of trying out for the 2011 CrossFit Games!
*** If you want to compete, you need to get your name on the white board asap!We will have a competition to see which 12 people will be able to compete on the 2 TNT teams.Right now it looks like we will have 2 scaled teams, none RXd.If you want to compete as RXd, you know what you need to work on & you have 11 weeks!When you sign the board, let us know if you want to compete as RXd so we know if we have enough people to possible form an RXd team.
The cost will be $60.00 per team ($10 per person) & $15.00 for Individual competitors.
Just a few things to help you prepare, more details will follow as we get closer to the competition.
