FAQS

ATHLETES

Can I participate if my box doesn’t host?

Yes. You can register at any host. Try to encourage your box to become a host.

There is not a host near me. Can my Box participate?

Yes, they need to fill out the information on the website.

Can I participate if I work out at home and don’t belong to any box?

Yes. You can register even if you are not affiliated with a Box, but you must participate at one of our host locations.

Can I participate if I don’t do functional fitness?

Yes, but you should be sure to understand and practice the movements associated with the WODs.

When does the event start and finish?

Check in at most Hosts is 8am with a start time of 9am.
The finish time is dependent on the number of Athletes and the amount of equipment available to the Host.

Do the athletes get a shirt?

Yes if you register by the signup deadline.

Are there prizes for the athletes?

Each Host will determine the prize packages for the winners of the divisions.

Should I compete? I’m not sure if I am ready

Ask your coach and review our movements where we provide guidelines to help you choose. We like to see Athletes challenge themselves and compete as long as they can do the movements safely. However, if you are not sure you should always get with your coach. YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

My Host is sold out. Can I get on a Wait List?

Yes. When a host reaches their capacity we close registration. When you try to register we direct you to a Wait List form.  Also feel free to suggest an additional location that will fit our requirements.

Is there an age limit to compete?

Yes. With parent’s signature and Host permission, you can compete from age 13 upward.


WODs

Can a Host alter the WODs or deviate from The New WODs on the Block specifications?

The WODs cannot be changed since that would invalidate host to host comparisons. An individual athlete can alter the WODs for safety issues, but then they cannot win because altered movements don’t count in your score.

Are the WODs back to back or is there rest time between WODs?

There is ample rest time between WODs 1-3. After the last heat of WOD 3, there will be a 30 minute break to see who moves on to the finals. During this time, movement standards will be discussed and athletes will be given time to warm up.


TECHNICAL

THE REST

Can we volunteer to help?

There is no formal method to Volunteer. If concerned, ask the Host using the “Contact the Host” button on the Host’s registration page

Is there a charge for spectators?

Most hosts charge $5 for everyone over 5 years old. Helps them cover costs of feeding judges and stuff like that.
