Re: Starting Team CrossFit Olympic Lifting Team

i want to have these all across the country. lets see how it plays out. i know that we are going to hold a meet at josh everett's place sometime soon and of course everyone will be invited, but i doubt that people from all over the usa will come.....but in a year or two we might have a crossfit national championship to be held in ?????. we want everyone to sign up that might have an interest in competition. if and when you decide to join team crossfit you can register with our team by signing up via usa weightlifting. i will have that info for you as soon as i get it. that will give you the opportunity to compete anywhere there is a registered meet within the usa. any affiliate will be able to get a meet going as well under team crossfit. (more on that later) if you have questions just contact me for answers: 760-535-1835 or mikeburgener@mac.com

more to come

Re: Starting Team CrossFit Olympic Lifting Team

here is the scoop: go to www.usaweightlifting.org download a membership application and fill it out. fax it in. call with your cc info.

Team Crossfit’s club’s number is 3321 and is now active. we are an official club now! anyone who is now a member of usaw and is unattached can switch to team crossfit right away. just call it in or fill out the cdt form. if you are a member of another team but want to switch to team crossfit, then you have to get permission from your club president to do so, otherwise you will have to wait 4 mo. before the switch will be official.

let me know if there are any questions!!

Re: Starting Team CrossFit Olympic Lifting Team

Coach B,

A little off topic, but I was wondering if you knew the requirements for lifting in the collegiate national championships? Would I have to qualify by lifting in a previous meet or something like that? Also do I have to be attatched to a school or could I lift under Team Crossfit?
