Any CrossFit affiliate in good standing with CrossFit, LLC will have the ability to register a team for the Affiliate Cup team competition. Teams will consist of at least two men and two women who validly register for the Open, have established residence, and have begun training with the affiliate on or before Open registration begins (Jan. 13). Any athlete between the ages of 16-54 may contribute to their affiliate’s team score during the Open.
Athletes may only compete for one team during each CrossFit Games season. Athletes registered in the adaptive divisions will be unable to register or join a team. All athletes need to be on the team roster by the close of the first Open workout.
Step 1: Register for the Open
Any athlete wishing to register a team or compete as part of a team must first register as an individual athlete.
Step 2: Login, and go to your Competition Dashboard
Once you've completed Open registration, login to Games.CrossFit.com. The main landing page is called your Competition Dashboard. Here, you can make changes to your account such as adding an Affiliate or joining a Team. Before you can create or join a team you must first make sure to select your affiliate.
Step 3: Create a Team
On the left hand column of the page find the "Team" section near the bottom of your Competition Dashboard. Click the "Edit Team" button underneath Team.
You will then be prompted to either join a team or create a team. Click the "Create a team" button if you are attempting to register a new team.
You will be taken to the Team Registration page to get started:
Naming. You will have the option to bring back a team name from last year or create a new team name. Be aware that this is the name that CrossFit analysts will use to refer to your team, so abbreviations (for example CFMV instead of CrossFit Mountain View) or names unrelated to your affiliate's name (for example: Jacked and Tan) will mean that your affiliate's name won't be stated as frequently in media or at public competitions. Secondly, you'll want a team name that's easy for your members to type in and find.
Payment.The fee for registering a team is US$20 worldwide, with the exception of teams in Latin America and Africa, where the registration fee is US$15.
Once the team registration is complete you will receive confirmation.
