Minors in the Open
Extra steps are required for anyone under 18 to compete in the Open
The CrossFit Games Open is a six week, worldwide competition in the sport of fitness. It is not a kid's competition, and is not designed to be scaled to fit the needs of children. Nonetheless, there are athletes under 18 who have been training for the Games and are ready for CrossFit competition.
To accommodate these athletes, we have a way for minors from 14 to 17 years to participate in the Open. Since this is a virtual competition, there are some legal stipulations required to include minors. Minors are not allowed to enter into a contract without parental consent, and the privacy of minors is a sensitive issue on the internet.
The process for minors participating in the Open is this: If you are under 18 years of age and would like to compete in the Open Qualifiers and register online, you must submit an email to Under18@crossfitgames.com with MINOR in the subject line of the email, followed by your name. In the body of the email, you must provide the following:
Your Home Address
Your Date of Birth
Your Parent or Legal Guardian's Name
Your Parent or Legal Guardian's Email address, at which they may be contacted
Your Parent or Legal Guardian's Home Address
Your Parent or Legal guardian's best contact phone number
When we receive this email, we will send instructions for participating in the Open as a minor, as well as a PDF that the legal guardian will need to sign and notarize, giving proper consent for your participation in the CrossFit Games Open. You will need to fax or scan and email this notarized document back to us.
Once we receive the document, we will send the legal guardian instructions on how to register the minor on the new Open site, which goes live very soon.
We strongly encourage you to do this as early as possible so that you can get the registration process under way.
