And... it gets better every year. This year promises to be the biggest yet. We have made this event a priority the past two years and will continue to do so, as it is not only an exceptionally ran and programmed event..... but also a GREAT measuring stick for the next years CrossFit Games Open and Regionals.
In order to put our best foot forward, we will be having tryouts next weekend. The 23rd-25th. ONE workout each of those days. If you cannot make it for those days, then you can tryout this weekend as well. Contact a trainer and work out the details. If you cant make any or the days, please let us know and we will try and work something out with you.
We really hope everyone who is interested will try out. HOA is a big deal and a great way to test our mettle against the best in the region. If you are wanting to do HOA, please tryout and if not liking the layout of the teams, then look into creating your own teams. But we really do want to make sure we are sending out our best teams possible.
Be looking for an HOA tryout sign up sheet at the gym, AND..... a Wod War 1 Judge and Volunteer sign up sheet also. We will need a TON of help for WW1 and Im sure the 540 is up for it!
Also! We need judges for the tryouts also.... if you are interested in this, let a trainer know.
