It’s that time of year again; athletes are gearing up for the CrossFit Games. You might be wondering what that means for you and the gym so I’m here to shed some light!
I’ll start by explaining the process of qualifying for the games. There are two different routes athletes can take; Individual and Team. Teams consist of 3 men and 3 women. No matter what route an athlete takes, they must sign up for the CrossFit Open. Anyone worldwide can sign up for this, including you. Here's the website. It’s $20 to register. https://games.crossfit.com/mygames/
If you would like a shot at the team, join the DogTown Affiliate and then join one of our teams. Team A orTeam B.
More on the CrossFit Open:
Beginning Wednesday February 22 CrossFit Headquarters will announce one workout a week for the next 5 weeks. Athletes are required to complete this workout within the week and have a qualified gym validate their score. DogTown is a validated gym and we will make sure all scores are true and correct.
Upon completion of the 5 weeks of workouts, the top Individual men and women and teams worldwide will be selected to compete in Regionals. This is the next step to the games. Regionals for the Socal Region will be held May 11-13. It has been rumored that the event will take place at the Pomona Fairgrounds.
From the Regionals competition, the top 3 individual men and women and the top 3 teams will move on to the CrossFit Games. The CrossFit Games are to be held July 11-13 at the Home Depot Center in Carson.
DogTown's Valerie Voboril is competing for an individual spot and several others are competing for spots on the Teams. We hope to send our best athletes and go all the way to the games this year!
Anyone can sign up for the Open and Register for the team. The Open workout from CrossFit Headquarters will be our class workout every Friday with Sunday being a makeup day during Open Gym. Even if you’re not competing, it will be fun to do the workout or a scaled version as a gym and see where you stand within the rest of the world.
