  • DIVISIONS:

Teens 14-15, 16-17, Masters 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, Beginner, Scaled and Rx

We have included a beginners division to broaden the field and give those that just want to participate an opportunity to have a go.

Beginner criteria = 0-6 months CF experience and inability to pull up and Box jump to 24” box.

 

  • PRIZES:

Prize money up for grabs as an incentive, example only.

Rx = 1st $200, 2nd $150, 3rd $100

Scaled = 1st $125, 2nd $100 3rd $75

Beginners = 1st $90, 2nd $70, $50

Of course if there is a lot of interest the prize pool could become bigger.

We imagine that there won’t be too many entering in some divisions so if there is less than 10 in any division(s) we may combine some divisions and split the prize money up as a percentage. We will be able to confirm the prize pool after week one.

 

  • SCORING: (if under 10 individuals in a division)

Individuals will be ranked against Australasia. From that ranking, it will then be placed against the others in respected divisions and compared.

For example, if a teen in the 14-15 year category gets placed as 15th in the region and a teen in the 16-17 category gets placed 11th. The teen placing 11th will have a better score and better ranking.

This Format will be the same as the masters divisions.

If this occurs only teen’s divisions will be combined with other teen’s divisions and Masters combined with Masters.

 

This has been decided if there is not enough in each section of the Teens and Masters divisions. However if there are more than 10 in each then this format will be scraped.

 

The scoring will follow the Opens Online system. We will create a league to see all scores and create divisions etc.

 

Scoring sheets will be created by CFR and handed over to hosting boxes as quickly as possible.

 

  • JUDGING:

We ask for assistance from all boxes and participating athletes to help out with judging. It would make more sense if the hosting box could provide a few extra judges. It is particularly important that we get experienced judges to look after our Rx athletes as well as any other athlete looking at pushing for Regional selection.

 

  • RULES:

This is a ‘regional side comp’ within the Bay of Plenty area. There are prizes involved and with that comes responsibility and rules.

Due to the nature of the comp which requires travel, we will allow participants to miss ONE of the scheduled open WoDs at any given venue. If for any reason you miss more than one of the scheduled meets, you will forfeit all registration money and potential prize money regardless of your result on the table. If you have a valid reason for missing out then the decision will be at the discretion of the host box and the CFR panel. In other words you have to make it to 4/5 of the WoDs and must be present at the final to receive your prize.

 

This BoP regional is a competition, which means our judges will have to be on their game for our Rx athletes and those pushing for regional honours. In saying this, athletes will treat all judges with the utmost respect or could be asked to leave without a refund.

We want to make this competitive but at the same time enjoyable for all. Bad sportsmanship will not be permitted and can also result in an early exit.

 

Heats will be sorted as soon as we learn what the WoDs are. If you have a request to be earlier or at a later time please let the CFR team know 24 hours before the WoD begins.

 

Athletes will be responsible for submitting their own scores. Scores will be recorded on the day (in case of input errors) but in order for scores to be counted they will need to be entered into the data base. Athletes will be responsible for submitting their own score.

 

HOSTING FACILITIES:

We would like to acknowledge and thank all of our host Boxes. Without you and your participation, this competition would not be possible. So a very big mihi and shout out to:

Manu, Skay and the team at CrossFit Taupo

George and the team at CrossFit Tumeke

Chas at CrossFit Alliance

The whanau whanui of CrossFit Rotorua

 

We are expecting athletes and supporters to come from Te Kuiti, Tokoroa, Cambridge, Rotorua, Taupo, Whakatane, Papamoa and Kawerau. So it’s shaping up to be one massive event already.

 

We are excited about this concept and can’t wait for the OPEN!
