Hattie helped judge the Open last year.

The CrossFit Open is only 2 weeks away and we’re up to 88 athletes at Roots!  What’s the CrossFit Open?!  Ask a Coach, ask a fellow athlete, read the blog.  It’s the most fun part of the fitness year.  And part of what helps to make that happen are the judges.

How?  Start by taking the Judges Course.  It’s an online tutorial and test to make sure you understand the requirements of the job.  Basically, it’s making sure you know the proper start and finish to each movement that could be used during the CF Open and how to properly count reps.

Once you pass (you get as many tries as you need) they’ll award you a certificate that you’ll email to me or Stef, or both.  We’ll print the certificate, hang it on the front desk, and you can start judging.  Every athlete that participates at Roots will need a Judge in order to submit a valid score.

As time gets closer to the first event, Feb. 26th, you’ll receive an email asking what times you can judge for each night of the Open.  No worries if you miss a night or two.  We need judges during the day as well, and yes, you can still participate in the events if you’re also judging.  All the help is very much appreciated and as I said, you all make this thing go down without a hitch.

Email Shane with questions.  Have you judged in the past?  Post to comments.
