NOW is the time to let me know your intentions as there isn't much time before it all begins.
As you would have seen both individuals and affiliate teams are selected from the OPEN Sectionals, which will take place from early March to April. That way everyone can have a go whether individual or team and CrossFit HQ will select the individuals and teams that do the best overall to progress.
What this means to us, is that if you are thinking of doing either individual or team you can try both, which I would encourage.
There is still the Regionals, where all the potential teams will come together to qualify for the Worlds in the U.S. so game on people.
As part of the lead up, normally training will continue, but we will have Sunday as an extra training session for both individuals and team people. I will confirm the time when we confirm numbers.
If you are one of those keen, training will
I AGAIN encourage you all to have a go a the games even if it is just completing the WODS for the games. The opportunity will be an awesome experience and hopefully we will be able to qualify a team and some individuals to progress through to the Regionals, which again is an experience in itself.
So at this stage the time line is as follows;
OPEN DAY: 12th Feb 11
SECTIONALS: Early March to April 11
REGIONALS: Late May 11
WORLDS: Late July 11
Also, you would have seen the new format for the MASTERS, which has age groups from 45 onwards. Excellent idea, just a shame they don't have one for those 40's plus!!
What this means is that those of you that fall within that category can have a CRACK!!! Let me know if this is you and you are keen to have a go.
Finally, the efforts of you guys is commendable over the last 12 months. This includes those that just want to be part of the REX experience and train for health and fitness, to those who are keen to take it to the next level and compete. The GAMES gives us an opportunity to support those of you wanting to go to that next level and I would urge everyone to get behind all those involved and experience Cross Fit for what it is, not only for the competitor, but for the community as a whole.
