HOA 2018 Event Details


When: Friday, September 28th – Sunday, September 30, 2018

Where: Springfield Expo Center – Springfield, MO

635 E St Louis St, Springfield, MO 65806

Expo center


Teams must be comprised of 4 members: 2 Men and 2 Women. All 4 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 2018 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 28-30.

Tiered Registration for HOA 2018

For the past 4 years, when registration has gone live, HOA has sold out immediately. To give more structure to the process, we will again open team registration over the course of 3 days:

RX’d Division Registration will open on Friday, June 22 @ 5pm

Scaled Division Registration will open on Saturday, June 23 @ 5pm

Masters Division Registration will open on Sunday, June 24 @ 5pm

Although we don’t recommend trying to have one person sign up multiple teams, please note that refunds will NOT be given to any team who confirms registration for their team twice. They will be transferable but YOUR TEAM will be responsible for finding another team to take the spot. Please stay tuned to this site and The HOA Facebook Page for upcoming announcements and additional registration instructions.
