CATEGORIES AVAILABLE:

TEENS – U18

Our ‘Teen’ competition runs in line with the Novice, Intermediate, Masters and RX categories with all teens completing the 3 online qualifiers in order to qualify for the live final, here they will also compete across all 3 days. Teens are the next generation of CrossFitters and we want to give them the best possible platform for them to achieve their goals both short and long term in our sport.

The lucky 20 teens (10 males and 10 females) that manage to qualify will compete alongside the best athletes in our sport at the 10,000 capacity Motorpoint stadium in Nottingham, UK.

Teens Division:

  • Under 18yrs (must be under 18 years of age during the online qualifier stage).
  • Top 10 male and 10 female athletes will advance to the live finals.
  • All teen athletes must be accompanied by an adult/guardian throughout the event.

This category will include RX movements with reduced weight/volume to suit the needs of the younger athletes.

NOTE: All categories will compete across all 3 days in the live finals. So, from all the team here at The European Championships, good luck and enjoy the challenges ahead!


NOVICE

Our novice category was introduced to allow EVERYONE the opportunity to take part in our competition and experience the atmosphere on the competition floor.

Athletes can enter and take part in the qualifiers as many times as they wish, however once successful and they compete at the finals themselves, then they will no longer be able to take part in this category.

We want everyone to experience the excitement of being on the competition floor at least once and hopefully this category will keep athletes motivated in the gym too with more opportunities to take part.

This category will be ‘Scaled’ and will feature movements like the below examples:

  • Double Unders = Single skips
  • Toes to bar = Leg raises
  • Handstand press ups = Push press
  • Rope Climbs = Standing rope climbs
  • Pull Ups = Jumping Pull Ups
  • Reduction in weight & time during the workouts

NOTE: All categories will compete across all 3 days in the live finals. So, from all the team here at The European Championships, good luck and enjoy the challenges ahead!


INTERMEDIATE

Our Intermediate category was created to allow a wider range of athletes the opportunity to take part in our competition and not just sanctioned and CrossFit Games level athletes, we want the whole family taking part in the action.

Event director Carl Saville said: “Over the years as the sport has grown, there has been a clear pool of athletes like myself who don’t fit in the ‘Scaled’ or ‘RX’ category and trapped in the middle, therefore we want to give them an opportunity to get involved too”

This category will feature RX movements but with reduced volume and load to suit the needs of the intermediate category. So, if you CAN’T perform ALL of the below movement guidelines yet, then our ‘Intermediate’ category is indeed for you, if you CAN perform all of these, then you should select the ‘RX’ category:

  • Perform 5+ unbroken Muscle Ups (Any variation)
  • Perform 10+ unbroken HSPU (Any variation)
  • Perform 10+ unbroken Thrusters at 60/40kg
  • Perform 10m unbroken handstand walk
