    Important Info about this year’s CrossFit Games Affiliate Teams:,1033/

    Even if you have no interest in competing, you can still help us qualify as an affiliate. For example, if one of the WOD’s is 5RM dead lifts, our best scores can come from members who do that WOD, only that WOD, and never participate in another qualifying WOD.

    In essence, all of CFNYC is a team. We can use any of our members to do to any of the WOD’s (there will be one qualifying WOD per week for several weeks). Our score will be based on the performance of the three best men and three best women during each qualifying WOD, regardless of how many people do the WOD.

    There is a contest that awards free tickets to the Games to the affiliate that has the most participating members during the qualifiers. The Black Box should be a serious contendor for winning the tickets.

    I got a different impression from this paragraph in the link:

    “For an athlete’s scores to be able to count for their team’s qualification efforts in any given week, they must still be “in the running” as an individual. This means that they cannot scale, DNF, or be disqualified for missing range of motion on any week’s workout.”

    Has this requirement been changed?

    • Hari

      Kent’s interpretation is correct. My example would hold only if it were the first WOD. If it were, say, the third WOD, the athlete would need to have done the first two WOD’s. So, you can help up and until the time that you miss a qualifier WOD. Therefore, we are likely to encourage everyone to do the early WOD’s. In my example, if you are great a dead lifting, and the first WOD is a 5K, we’re going to need you to do that 5K to maintain your availability on the roster.
