Get Ready for the Open With the 2022 Judges Course

December 9, 2021


Prepare for the 2022 season and a full year of fun and fitness with the 2022 Judges Course.

Do you have 60 to 90 minutes to become a better athlete? The 2022 NOBULL CrossFit Games Open is just around the corner, and the 2022 Judges Course will help you prepare for it, whether you’re an affiliate owner, coach, an athlete with aspirations to be a judge at a live CrossFit event, or just someone who wants to understand movement better.

The 2022 Judges Course is an online course that provides an overview of the knowledge and skills used during competition, including movement standards, common faults, and repetition counting. In sum, it offers an introduction to the skills CrossFit judges use during every competition in the CrossFit Games season.

Take the Judges Course

Who Should Take the Course?

  • Affiliate managers
  • Team managers
  • Coaches
  • Anyone interested in validating scores
  • Anyone interested in becoming a judge at an in-person event, such as Semifinals or the Games
  • Anyone who would like to develop their coach’s eye and practice recognizing good movement

The Judges Course is recommended for everyone but required for affiliate managers, anyone interested in validating scores, and those interested in judging at an in-person event this season. 

What’s New?

This year, anyone who takes the Judges Course can validate Open scores. Those who complete the course will be given the designation of “registered judge” for the 2022 season and will have the chance to become more involved than ever before. 

New in 2022: Athletes may participate in the 2022 Open by performing the workouts with a registered judge, at an affiliate, or with a video submission. 

As usual, athletes planning to advance to later stages of competition must have videos of their performances available for review should they be asked to supply one.

More Information on the Course

The Judges Course should take you about 60 to 90 minutes, and it can be completed in multiple sessions. However, it is recommended that you complete a full module before exiting the course, as work on partially completed modules will not be saved.

Successful completion of the yearly course awards the judge a certificate that is valid for the current CrossFit Games season. 

The cost of the course is $10. No prerequisites are required.
