How It Works

During the 8th-29th November  2019, 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 May 31st 2020 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 May 31st 2020, 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.
