    Yes. Your individual ranking will determine the teams ranking as well.
  • CAN I DECIDE WHICH DIVISION (Individual/Team) I WANT TO COMPETE IN AFTER THE ONLINE QUALIFIER?
    Yes. We will invite any Individually qualified athlete after the Online Qualifier and IF they accept their invitation they will simply be removed from the Team they are representing.
  • DO I NEED TO SUBMIT A VIDEO FOR MY QUALIFIER WODS IF I WANT TO QUALIFY AS AN INDIVIDUAL?
    Yes, if you are aiming to compete as an Individual you must submit a video with each of your Q-WOD submissions (the leaderboard wont accept a score submission without it).
    We recommend using our Official Timer WOD-Proof App to make it easy to follow our requirements.
  • DO I NEED TO SUBMIT A VIDEO FOR MY QUALIFIER WODS IF I WANT TO QUALIFY FOR A TEAM?
    No. But FiCT will require at least one video per Team Athlete in a team qualifying for the Main Event and ALL Team Athletes are subject to video request at any time.
    All athletes aiming to qualify for a team is recommended to film their Q-WODs as all will be required to send in at least one video after the Online Qualifiers. Failure to present a video within 12h of request = no score in that Q-WOD and possible disqualification of the athlete.
    We recommend using our Official Timer WOD-Proof App to make it easy to follow our requirements.

    No, there are no separate divisions for masters or teenagers. The main event is Rx only for all competing athletes.

 

INDIVIDUALS

    When you register you get to chose want a chance to qualify for Individual Divisionand once youve clicked that you can ONLY submit scores together with a valid Video Link.
  • “MUST SUBMIT AT LEAST ONE SCORE”, does this mean that I can qualify without doing all the FiCT 2019 Q-WODs? No. We find it highly unlikelythat anyone will find themselves in the top 20 without scores in all 3 qualifier workouts.
  • IF I QUALIFY FOR THE TOP 20 HOW DO I REGISTER FOR THE MAIN EVENT? After videos have been validated by the FiCT 2019 Judging Team we will send out invitations to register for the Main Event and Individuals will have 72 hours to accept their invitation and fulfil the registration (R1.500, approx $100).
  • IF I ACCEPT AN INDIVIDUAL INVITE, HOW DOES THAT EFFECT MY TEAM?
    For a Super Team it wont change their invitation status, but they will need to replace you with another athlete that have submitted at least ONE score in the Online Qualifiers (and that is also NOT registered for any other team during the FiCT Season).
    For an Affiliate Team an athlete will be withdrawn from the team roster if they chose to accept an Individual Invitation and the Teams Total Ranking Point will be based on the next athlete in line.

 

SUPER TEAMS

    Any four athletes (2 female & 2 male). Athletes do NOT need to train together or represent the same Affiliate.
  • HOW MANY ATHLETES CAN BE IN A SUPER TEAM ROSTER:
    FOUR. Only two female and two male athletes can be registered for a Super Team.
  • WHAT HAPPENS IF AN ATHLETE IN A SUPER TEAM QUALIFIES FOR THE INDIVIDUAL DIVISION:
    IF the athlete accepts their Individual invitation and registers for the main event she/he can be replaced by another athlete that has submitted at least ONE Online Qualifier Score, as long as that athlete has NOT been registered for any other team during the FiCT Season.

    Any athlete that train at the Affiliate a minimum of 51% WEEKLY from the 1st of November 2018 to 3rd of February 2019.
  • HOW MANY ATHLETES CAN BE IN AN AFFILIATE TEAM ROSTER:
    As many as the Affiliate wants to register.

  • CAN AN AFFILIATE QUALIFY MORE THAN ONE TEAM: Yes. The Wave system for qualification is specifically designed to allow boxes with a broad depth to have a chance to qualify more than one team. We do see it possible that the Team Spots will be claimed already during the first 3 waves so we don't expect an Affiliate to get to register more than 3 teams at most.
  • HOW WILL THE AFFILIATE TEAM’S SCORES BE COUNTED TOWARDS THE LEADERBOARD RANKING:
    In the end the top two ranked Female and top two ranked Male athletes from an Affiliate Team will get their total ranking points added together which will give the Affiliate Team ONE score that will then be ranked against all other teams (Super Teams included). Lowest Total Ranking Points = ranked first on the leaderboard.

    Yes. Affiliate Teams compete within the same competition as the Super Teams, and as such are eligible to win CrossFit Fittest in Cape Town 2019 including prize money and the first prize ticket to the CrossFit Games 2019.
