masters competition

Three Questions

1. How many and where are there Masters competitions for CrossFit (outside of the open) ?

2. Have they been well-attended ?

3. How do you score them -and scale them - do you lump them into one general scoring catagory or do you have different divisions ?

Re: masters competition

1. Outside of the Open, it's simply a matter of which local competitions want to include a Masters division. You'll have to check the events in your area. To date, there is no central organization or sanctioning of events outside of the Open.

2. I'm not sure if you're referring to athlete participation or spectator attendance. We have had a Masters division in the Mid-Atlantic Hopper Challenge the past two years and have had no trouble filling the limited number of competitor slots we allow for it. Again, you'll have to check on the events in your area.

3. Not to beat a dead horse, but you'll have to look and see what's being done in your area. Scoring and scaling varies greatly from event to event. We tend to have our Masters do the same weights as our Scaled division, but we also make some modifications to certain movements. For scoring, we use a points for placement system similar to that of the Open.

Re: masters competition

Hi Steve,

Take a look at

More and more events are popping up with a Masters division, so you can look and see exactly which events have Masters divisions, or search by area, and see if there's a close event that is including a Masters division.

Thanks ...
