Regional Crossfit Games Competitions
There are alternatives. There are a number of other outfits organizing masters Crossfit competitions. An interesting points were recently put forth by Ray Garcia of Shoreline CrossFit:
- First, people want to be acknowledged.
- Second, they seem to want to be acknowledged within the CrossFit community.
- Third, there are a lot of “masters” but we need to be segmented by age because clearly the biological evidence is we degrade with age.
- Fourth, Crossfit proclaims meritocracy … survival of the “fittest” literally. So, how about a privately organized competition by region playing off the already existing larger masters competitions. For example, TJ’s runs a masters event on the west coast games style and so do Shoreline and CFNE. There are other large scale masters events. So, how about if those events feed “Winners” to a few centralized events, and to an eventual “National competition” and age bracket winners.
Having sent a young athlete to a CrossFit Regionals Competition and having served as a volunteer behind the scenes I can attest to the excitement and fun of Regional CrossFit games. I hope CrossFit HQ will include Masters in Regionals CrossFit competitions. Its probably a matter of time. Oh. And Money. Let’s not forget that either.
