Call for Judges

The 2013 CrossFit Open is just 20 days away.  The start of the Open each year also means a call for judges.  The judging staff of the past few years has put in a lot of hours to judge all of our athletes and we thank them – we couldn’t have run the smooth and timely Throw Downs without you.

Are you interested in volunteering to judge one or more of the Thursday Night Throw Downs at Roots?  If so, here’s what we need from you.

1. Complete the Online Judges Course by February 21st.
2. Email your passing certificate to Shane and Nicole
3. We will follow-up with you to organize.

Please note: if you volunteer to judge you will absolutely be able to do The Open workout during the Thursday Night Throw Down.  And the more judges we have, the easier it is for everyone!

Here are details on the judging course:

The 60- to 90-minute course takes you through the basics of being a good judge. After each module, there are a series of written and multiple choice questions, filmed scenarios and freeze-frame judgment calls that will challenge and support your ability to judge human movement in real time. The course is not easy, but should benefit all potential competition judges and even anyone interested in the subtleties of human movement and performance.

The cost for the course is only $10. There is no limit on how many times one can take the test, but you must pass if you want to be considered to be a Regional judge.

Are you interested in judging?  Post to comments.

    Visiting from out of town at the 9:30am class, great coaching Ryan … I’m going to take those tips home with me! First time Amanda for me, was fun!

    1. Hi Collin,
      Yes, you will need to complete the online course in order to judge this year. This is not a CrossFit Inc. policy this year but it is something we are implementing at Roots this year. We feel it is one of the most important components of The Open. Here’s what you’ll need to do:
      1. Complete the Online Judges Course by February 21st.
      2. Email your passing certificate to Shane and Nicole
      3. We will follow-up with you to organize.
