Invitations Coming for Regionals and Masters
By CrossFit

Don't forget to validate athletes' scores no later than 5 p.m. today.

Affiliate Managers must validate their athletes' scores no later than 5 p.m. PT, Tuesday, April 9. If they do not, those scores will be considered invalid and potentially affect invitations to compete further.

All Individual men and women who were in the top 48 of their region will receive invitations to their respective Regional competitions on Wednesday, April 10 by email. Each Regional Leaderboard will then show the roster of the top 48 men and women, with indications of pending, accepted or declined Individual competition. These athletes will have until Tuesday, April 16 to accept the invitation, or it will be considered declined. 

On Wednesday, April 17 a second wave of invitations based on the number of Individuals who decline or don't reply in each region will be sent. The deadline to accept these invitations will be Tuesday, April 23. 

On Wednesday, April 24 Invitations for Teams to compete at Regionals will be sent to the captains of the top 30 Teams in each region. Please note that no Team invitations will be sent until this point. 

Captains will have until Tuesday, April 30 to accept their invitation and submit an initial roster of four men and four women. On Wednesday, May 1 a second wave of invitations will be sent based on the number of declines or no-replies in each region, with their deadline for accepting with a roster on May 7.

All Teams who have registered may modify their roster until May 7. At this point, all rosters will be frozen. The Regional workouts will be released on May 8 and no roster substitutions will be permitted for any reason.  

Invitations to compete at the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games will be sent to the top 20 Masters in each of the 10 divisions in May, after the Regional workout announcements. Please note that no Masters invitations will be sent out until this point. The final deadline for accepting Masters invitations will not occur until after all the Regional competitions are complete.

The Regional competitions are three-day events. The first weekend begins on Friday, May 17 and the final weekend ends on Sunday June 9. Find volunteer information on the CrossFit Games site, and hotel information here.
