HOA 2020 Event Details

yay

When: Friday, September 25 – Sunday, September 27, 2020

Where: CrossFit Springfield – Springfield, MO

1900 W Sunset St, B100, Springfield, MO 65807

Floor

Divisions

Teams must be comprised of 4 members: 2 Men and 2 Women.

Athletes will not be required to be from the same gym.

Team Captains (or whomever registers your team) will still be prompted to input an gym/affiliate that the team is representing based on their own discretion or on the amount of athletes on the team from a particular box.

Fitness is cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, agility, balance, coordination, and accuracy. At The 2020 Heart of America Team Competition presented by JUNK | 1st Phorm, every team – regardless of division – will be collectively tested in each of these 10 domains.

Here’s our best piece of advice, train accordingly:

HOA will not be releasing a checklist of movements, modalities, and loads to practice and prepare for. We believe that if you are training regularly and participating at a box with coaches and ownership who subscribe to, encourage, and incorporate performing constantly varied, functional movements at high intensity across broad time and modal domains then you, along with the guidance of those who comprise your gym’s leadership team, are already more than well-equipped to assess your current skill level and ability. Adhere to the aforementioned training method, work hard, attack your weaknesses and you will be good to go this September 25-27.

Prescribed & Scaled Divisions

All Athletes must be over the age of 16 as of 9/25/2020

Athletes under 18 years of age will required a minor waiver signed by a legal guardian.

•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 27-29!

Cheers,

HOA Planning Committee
