CrossFit Valley Park will be entering a team consisting of 3 men and 3 women to compete in the 2009 CrossFit Games. Team events consist of 4 competitors. They do not announce what the events will be until that week. While individuals must actually go through regional qualifiers, teams do not. We simply register on June 1st, and it's official.
Teams have to have a minimum of 4 people and a maximum of 6. We happen to have more than that who wish to compete. To determine who competes we will be having tryouts on May 23rd and 24th. We will run 2 events each day and these will be the exact events from the 2008 Games. Anyone is welcome to tryout. We will also need plenty of volunteers to take times, count repetitions, and cheer us on!

Speaking of competitions, we are working on putting together a Spring Challenge here at CrossFit Valley Park. We are guessing sometime early-mid March. Stay tuned for details.
