The 2012 CrossFit Games season is almost here! Registration for the Open begins on February 1. We will announce the first Open workout on February 22. After five Open workouts, one each week, the top 60 men, 60 women, and 30 teams in each region will qualify to compete at one of 17 Regional competitions.
This year, Regionals will take place over the course of five weekends from April 27 to May 27. The venues have not been announced yet. Many venues are different from last year, so don't book your travel yet. Regional locations will be announced in early February.
The Regional competitions will follow a similar format to 2011. Over the course of three days, the Region's best men, women, and teams will compete for a precious few Games qualifying spots. The Regional workouts will be released on Wednesday, April 18.
This year, all athletes who hope to compete at the Games will compete at Regionals, so make sure you get out there and see the stars in action. Volunteer registration for Regionals will open up the Games site in February.
