Congratulations Team CrossFit Scottsdale. For the third year in a row we have qualified to compete at the regional level (5 states). The top 30 affiliate teams that competed in the CrossFit Games Open were selected from each region to participate. This year we will be holding team tryouts to find the best competitors for our team.
Anyone who competed in the Reebok CrossFit Games Open season is encouraged to compete, participate, try out and join us in Colorado. It’s great to have a support system and have familiar faces in the crowd cheering on the team. If you plan on attending and are not planning on competing on the regional team please keep us in the loop so that we can coordinate and add you to the regional updates.
Team tryouts will take place this week on Friday 4/6 and Saturday 4/7. There will be several workouts per day to simulate a real competition with strategy planning, timing, rest, sleep, nutrition and recovery. We are competing for the top affiliate in the state and a chance to go to The CrossFit Games in July in California.

We are still trying to secure 6 ($500) sponsorships to take care of the majority of the lodging expenses for the team for the weekend, we will be creating a “warm up shirt” with company logos on them to wear throughout the weekend. If you have a business or know of someone who is interested in helping fund some of the expenses of the team, please share this opportunity with them and let me or Luke know so that we can get them plugged in.
