USA Functional Fitness is proud to announce it will be hosting its first ever Collegiate National Functional Fitness Championships February 3th and 4th in Reston, Virginia. The competition will feature both pairs and individual competition in both RX and Pairs Divisions.
The competition is open to any athlete aged 25 or younger who is enrolled in a degree program at US college or university. Athletes competing in the pairs divisions must attend the same school.
USAFF is providing guaranteed spots entry to the pairs competition for the following schools with functional fitness or CrossFit® club programs who have assisted in the initial idea phase of the event planning:
Penn State University
University of Pittsburgh
University of Cincinnati
University of Miami, Ohio
The remaining spots for the pairs competition will be open to the public for general registration on a first come first served basis this fall.
Athletes wishing to compete in the individual division must complete an online qualifier beginning in October. Registration for the online qualifier is open now.
Besides earning individual and pairs National titles during the event, one school will be crowned the National Functional Fitness Championships based on a point system for podium finishes. Athletes in both RX and scaled divisions will earn points for their school for podium finishes, though RX divisions will earn more points than scaled divisions will for the same placing.
USAFF’s expansion and focus in the collegiate space mirrors the International Functional Fitness Federation’s (iF3) desire to align with the International Federation of University Sport (FISU) and earn the sport a place at a future World University Games.
