HOA 2017 | Event 1 for All Divisions is “Kalsu”. *You can review the Event 1 description HERE.

James Robert Kalsu was an All-American Tackle at The University of Oklahoma and an NFL player with an extremely promising career ahead of him. After starting the entire 1968 season with the Buffalo Bills as a guard, he was named Team Rookie of the Year.

Despite the promise of a legendary career, Kalsu put that aside to enlist in the Army in 1969 and was soon shipped out to Vietnam, where he was killed in a mortar attack on Fire Support Base Ripcord less than a year later. Kalsu left behind a wife and two young children.

He was 25 years old when he died. The Kalsu WOD was created to honor Lt. James Robert Kalsu, his service, and his sacrifice for our country.

*A mandatory athlete briefing (All Divisions) for Events 1 and 2 will take place at 2:45pm Friday, September 29th at CrossFit Springfield. This is your opportunity to review event formats/logistics, clarify movement standards, and have any questions answered.

Registration Info

The format for The 2017 Heart of America Team Competition is 4 athletes – 2 men and 2 women – these athletes are not required to all train at the same facility but will need to choose an Affiliate to compete under.

Masters athletes must be 40+ as of 9/29/17

This is a full 3 day event:

•Team check-in Thursday night & Friday morning at Crossfit Springfield

•We are using RegOnline again this year for registration. Though it will not be live until 5pm (Central Time) Friday, June 23, here is the direct link to register for HOA 2017: http://www.regonline.com/hoa2017

If you are using your same registration email as last year, make sure you know your password from last year or use a new email address or your registration could be delayed.

•Master’s Division Registration will open on Friday, June 23th 5pm (CST)
•Scaled Division Registration will open on Saturday, June 24th 5pm (CST)
•RX’d Division Registration will open on Sunday, June 25th 5pm (CST)

Needed for registration:

– Email address
– Team Captain: Name, address, phone, emergency contact, password
– Team Name: To be used during event for team signs and scoring platform (Team Name cannot be changed after registration)
– Team Affiliate
– Names of team members (members can be switched out before the weekend of HOA)

– T-shirt sizes: Specify Unisex Tee or women’s tank (sizes cannot be changed after registration-trades will be allowed after team check in if available)
– Payment info: Credit card type – exp date, 3 digit code, billing address

•DO NOT register your team for another division if the one you want is sold out. You will not be able to switch divisions. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS.

•If it says sold out when you click the link for your team, keep trying. The system places a hold on all spots until they are completed. Some teams are having multiple people trying to sign one team up at the same time, so once their team is in, other spots will open up.

•DO NOT register your team twice. Communicate with your teammates.  If you register your team twice while trying to get through, you will be able to sell your spot to another team, but THERE ARE NO REFUNDS from the Heart of America Competition.

We look forward to once again hosting a fun, competitive and challenging community event.  We wish you the best of luck and many blessings as you prepare and train for this September 29-October 1!

Cheers,

HOA Planning Committee
