The 2021 CrossFit Judges Course has been released here. This year, the course is available in seven languages: English, Portuguese, Italian, German, French, Spanish (LA), and Spanish (EU).
This course offers an introduction to the skills a judge will use during any CrossFit competition. It includes general information on competition rules, regulations, and common movements. Individuals may complete the CrossFit Games Judges Course to develop, refine, or refresh judging skills prior to the Open.
