As we near the kickoff to the 2019 CrossFit Open, once again we look to our awesome crew of judges to help us run a well-organized and fun event.
We’re looking for a stellar team of volunteers to judge The Open workouts. Whether you’re already signed up for The Open and plan to compete or want to get involved in a different way, the judges MAKE The Open and Friday Night Lights a huge success.
The Online Judges Course and The CrossFit Open
Soon, you’ll start to see many CrossFit Judges Course certificates grace the front desk as we head into The Open. Like proud parents hanging their kids’ artwork on the fridge, the coaching staff couldn’t be happier than when our athletes choose to take the course.
The judges course is required for all affiliate managers who will validate Open workouts. It is recommended, yet not required, for individuals who will judge athletes in the Open, to take the course. At Roots, we have always made it part of our Open process that any individual who wishes (and we thank you for judging!) to judge athletes in The Open workouts at Roots must first take and pass the Online Judges Course.
Not only is the course required for judging in The Open, but many athletes also find it to be a useful tool for their own development and understanding of CrossFit movements.
