What makes a team?
A team roster consists of 6 members – 3 female and 3 male. These teams need to be nominated by 1st January 2016 via CrossFit Resonate. All competition night teams will consist of 2 males and 2 females, chosen from the roster as required.
What are the WOD’s?
There will be various WOD’s over the 4 weeks. Each athlete should expect to tackle multiple workouts every time. Some will be individual based and some will be team based.
What are the prizes?
Bulk Nutrients are the MAJOR Sponsor of this event and once again have been extremely generous with their sponsorship prizes.
There will be prizes given to each member of the weekly winning team. A Best Athlete overall each Friday night (judged by the weekly affiliate owner) and prizes for the winning team at the completion of the competition.
There will be a plaque provided to the state-wide winning team. This plaque will remain the property of the CrossFit Resonate, but will be displayed at the winning affiliate until the next series where upon it gets put on the line again.
How will the events be scored and where can I find out the leader board?
The scores will be uploaded here after each round.
Will the WOD’s be scalable or do they have to be performed RXD?
No scaling options will be provided or allowed during the competition.
Will we know the WOD’s in advance?
Yes. The WOD’s will be released here every Sunday at 5pm on the CrossFit Resonate Facebook Page and our website.
The state-wide final WOD’s will be released at CrossFit 42 South on the day of competition.
What is the cost to enter?
FREE, there is no cost to the athlete.
What if I am chosen to represent my team and I can’t make one of the WOD’s?
To be considered in your affiliates team it is expected that you are able to make at the majority of Friday night events (and the Saturday final’s if your team qualifies). Your team for any of the designated events must only consist of 4 members from your roster. No substitutions will be allowed and no exceptions will be made. It is the athlete’s responsibility to ensure they are available as required and remain injury free. If an affiliate cannot field a team of 4 members from their roster, then they can either attempt the WOD with less members or will forfeit that round.
I’M KEEN!!! What do I do now?
Simply let your box owner know and put your name down. Your affiliate owner will then select the team that will represent your box.
