Affiliation Process

Iím sure it varies but does anyone know approximately how long the affiliation process takes? Also what are some things to watch out for when submitting my application? What are some things that could cause the affiliation to be turned down? One thing I am concerned with is coming up with a name. Could someone please tell me where to find the criteria for coming up with a name for your crossfit?

Re: Affiliation Process

Hello Alan and Welcome!

It's exciting that you are considering affiliation.

Some things to consider BEFORE worrying about a name that are much more important. Most important, can you financially afford to run a box? How much time do you plan to be in your box, full or part time? See How to Affiliate Here: http://www.crossfit.com/cf-affiliates/affiliation.shtml (WFS)

1. Operating Budget
2. Size of Box
3. Location Garage or Industrial Space?
4. How much equipment will you need?
5. Business Management Software (customer management)
6. Full Time or Part Time Box?

Good Luck!

Re: Affiliation Process

Thank you very much for the advice. It is nice to know I can always log on here and get help from others. My partners and I have most of the important stuff like that under careful consideration already.

1. Operating Budget
2. Size of Box
3. Location Garage or Industrial Space?
4. How much equipment will you need?
5. Business Management Software (customer management)
6. Full Time or Part Time Box?

That is why we were currious if anyone out there had any advice on the affiliation process. Things to watch out for and whatnot.
