CrossFit Team Quarterfinals

The Team Quarterfinals are the second stage of the CrossFit season and will see top Affiliate teams around the world compete for a chance to advance to the next stage, the Semifinals.

They are an online event running between Thursday, April 22 and Sunday, April 25 and will determine the 200 teams that will advance to Semifinals worldwide.

“Only the top 25% of teams from each continent [with a minimum of 50 teams] qualify for an online competition that will challenge them with their toughest tests to date,” CrossFit wrote.

  • Teams must submit their first two results by Friday, April 23, at 12 p.m. PST.
  • Teams must submit their next two results by Saturday, April 24, at 12 p.m. PST.
  • Teams must submit their final results by the close of competition on Sunday, April 25, at 12 p.m. PST.
