Novice and Intermediate competition for individuals!
Men’s / Women’s Novice
Men’s / Women’s Intermediate
Men’s / Women’s Masters
Men’s / Women’s Juniors
This event is for the newer to intermediate athlete to introduce them to or help them advance in the Sport of Fitness and have a great time with some great people. This event is not for the Regional level athlete.
The distinction between Novice and Intermediate levels are determined by experience, strength and conditioning. Although these areas can be grey, a few clear examples may help. A novice athlete is someone who started at a box 6-8 months ago, is using bands on their pull-ups, multiple ab-mats for their Handstand Push-ups and is fairly new to the Clean & Jerk and Snatch.
An Intermediate athlete is someone who can perform most of the named girl workouts as prescribed, a good grasp on basic gymnastic movements, double-unders and can perform the Olympic movements proficiently (not necessarily heavy loads).
The Master’s athletes will fall somewhere in between these standards. These are just some examples if athletes are unsure of which division to register for. We want to have a fun, competitive AND balanced event.
Rules: This event is for athletes that have the drive to compete in a local competition and for those who are newer to competing. This is a great way for athletes to get their feet wet or gain some experience at competition and may not be ready for the heavier loads at some local events.
