I have had several questions regarding the 2018 Masters League over the last week or so.
To hopefully help you decide if you are keen to have a go or not, I will do my best to go over some of the key points.
If you want to see for yourself, in greater detail, what the Masters League involves you can go to the Masters League website.
What is it?
Very much like the CrossFit Open, the Masters League is an online event with weekly workouts released that you must complete and submit your score to be placed on a leaderboard. That is the first stage of the event.
The ages available are 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, and 60+ and there are 3 divisions within each age group – Soldier, Warrior and Hero. Have a read up on what movements you would generally be expected to do in each of the divisions HERE.
From there, the top 6 athletes from each division in EACH region (NZ has 3 regions – CFWS is in the Christchurch region) are invited to attend the “Invitationals”.
Athletes then are invited to go to the Masters League Games.
When is it?
Pretty much now, the first workout is released at 2 pm (NZ Time) on Friday 11th May and then every week after that.
You have until Midnight Thursday 17th May register, complete the workout and submit your score for week 1. Then weekly after that, as per the CrossFit Open.
We are not really keen on having multiple redo’s of the workouts so our intention is to hold them on Friday Nights during Open gym. It is much better to have support there and throwdown with other athletes doing the workout. Obviously, for special circumstances, we are able to make judges available at other Open gym times.
We will not be providing class times to do the Masters League Workouts
If all of that sounds like a bit of you, head through and REGISTER.
Then let me know HERE that you have registered so I can keep you up to date with any information other relevant bits and pieces.
