How It Works

During  May each year, 4 open workouts will be released, you will be given 1 week to complete each of these workouts (so 4 weeks in total) at your own affiliate, Gym or Training Facility, movement standards will be provided and you will need your workout judged and verified by a CrossFit Coach, Certified CrossFit judge or a Certificate Level III or IV Trainer.

You can perform each workout as many times as you like during the allocated 1 week and when you submit your verified score you will be able to track yourself on the leader board alongside all of the other athletes in your division and across your country and also nationally.

Master League Athletes are now in age Categories, starting from: 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-69, 70+

AGE ELIGIBILITY: If you are 34 turning 35 before October 31st 2019 you are eligible for the 35-39 Age Category. This concept is also for those deciding what age category to choose. Eg. If you are 44 turning 45 before October 31st 2019, the Age Category you would select will be 45-49

DIVISIONS: When you register you are required to enter as a Soldier (Beginner), Warrior (Intermediate) or Hero (Advanced) depending on your ability. See divisions page.

LEADERBOARD: Each individual athlete will be able to track their ranking on our live Masters League Open leaderboard.
Towards the end of the year the top male and female athletes in each division will be invited to attend their State/Regional final, Masters League Games!

THE ROAD TO THE MASTERS LEAGUE GAMES

The season is broken up into Three Stages:

STAGE ONE – MASTERS LEAGUE OPEN

This is a four-week, four-workout competition that is held in CrossFit affiliates, local and garage gyms around the world. Workouts are released online each Friday, and athletes have until the following Friday to submit their scores. Anyone who’s 35 years old can Register, and join in the first stage of the Masters League season.

NOTE: ATHLETES WHOSE SCORES LOOK QUESTIONABLE WILL BE REQUIRED TO SUBMIT A VIDEO & IT WILL BE VERIFIED BY ONE OF THE MASTERS LEAGUE JUDGES

STAGE TWO – MASTERS LEAGUE INVITATIONAL

Up to 5 top athletes from each Division & Age Category from the Masters League Open will qualify for this competition. The invitational is a one day event that is held in June.

NOTE: Attendance and participation at the invitational is expected of all athletes who make it through. If the athlete does not wish to attend, their spot will be given to the next athlete in line.

In some circumstances (family emergencies, pre-booked travel arrangements) Masters League may choose to allow the athlete to send in a video submission after the legitimacy of the circumstances has been confirmed. This will be considered on a case by case basis.

STAGE THREE – MASTERS LEAGUE GAMES

The top 2 athletes from each age group & division from the Invitational event will qualify to represent their Country/State/Region at the Masters League Games.

Top two qualifying Athletes from Countries outside of Australia/New Zealand from the Masters League Open will get an automatic invite to the Masters League Games!

INTRODUCING!!!!

MastersLeagueSummerSeason

Exciting news!

Our dates are changing and its all for YOU!

We are excited to announce that like the CrossFit Open, Masters League will also be having a transition season, a move that is sure to benefit everyone.

The Masters League Games will be moving to February, starting 2021.
In order to do that we need to compress the 2020 ML season by bringing forward the ML Open to November 2019, ending with the ML Games in May 2020 – this is for the transitional year only.

The new Official Masters League Summer Season will kick off with the ML Open in August 2020, ending with the ML Games in February 2021.

DATES TO REMEMBER

Masters League 2019/2020 TRANSITION YEAR ONLY

ML Open 8th November 2019 – 29th November 2019
ML Invitational 8th February 2020
ML Games 1st May 2020 – 2nd May 2020

There is a possible chance that 2 WODs will collide with the CF OPEN, it will only happen for transitional year in order to prepare for the new Masters League Summer Season.

NOTE: Age cut off for the transitional season will be end of May 2020.

Onwards and Upwards
