CrossFit is proud to announce our first Online Judges Course.

The 60- to 90-minute course takes you through the basics of being a good judge. After each module, there are a series of written and multiple choice questions, filmed scenarios and freeze-frame judgment calls that will challenge and support your ability to judge human movement in real time. The course is not easy, but should benefit all potential competition judges and even anyone interested in the subtleties of human movement and performance.

For 2013, the course is recommended, but not required for judging for the Open. It is mandatory, however, for anyone interested in judging at one of the 17 Regional Events. All Affiliate Managers who are validating Open workouts must take and pass the course. The cost for the course is only $10. There is no limit on how many times one can take the test, but you must pass if you want to be considered to be a Regional judge.

If you are interested in becoming a Regional judge, you must pass the online course and be an active judge in the Open (all workouts performed at an affiliate will have a judge’s name linked with their score). More details will be released later.
