The 2014 edition of the CrossFit Judges Course will be released on January 15, 2014
CFS- We would appreciate it if a handful of you would take the CrossFit Judges course prior the the 2014 Open. We will have the entire coaching staff certified but it will help us out tremendously if we could have a few extra hands on deck to help us out with the larger classes we will be judging come The Open. This course is also a great tool to have under your belt to help you understand points of performance and distinguish good movements from not so good movements. Registration will be available tomorrow on the CrossFit Game site: HERE
The course is mandatory for anyone who plans to judge at Regionals. It is also required for Affiliate Managers who will be validating scores during the Open.
The intent of the course is to set expectations for judging athletes during competition and to review common movement standards. The course will also have revised scenarios where you will watch short segments of a workout and be asked to provide the correct score.
All Regional Judges and Affiliate Managers, including those who passed the course last year, will have to take the 2014 edition of the CrossFit Judges Course. Those who took the course in 2013 will have the US$10 registration fee waived for this year.
If you plan on doing your Open workouts at an affiliate, you are encouraged to use a registered judge, but it is not required for most participants. Only athletes who plan on advancing to Regionals are required to use a registered judge. Those athletes will also need to submit a video of one of their workouts at the end of the Open, and to claim any prize money if they take the top score worldwide. Again, most participants in the Open will not need to video their workouts.
The Judges Course will be available here.
