Last year's throwdown was considered by many to be the event of the year. That speaks volumes considering we have a lot of fun around here and many of us attend great events. This event is what truly strengthens our community! It is great to see a new CrossFit members experience exactly what a competitor feels when they are in the throws of a competition. Nerves, anxiety, fear of failure, jubilation, victory and many other emotions are experienced by an athlete when competing. It is the process itself that leads to improvement no matter the outcome! CrossFit East Sacramento to my knowledge is the originator of the Newbie Throwdown and many other facilities have since followed suit! WHY? (IT'S F'N FUN)
1. It builds community better than any other competition, it bridges the gap between new vs. experienced CrossFitters!
2. It allows new members to compete with like levels of experience!
3. It encourages members to step outside their comfort zone without feeling like they are competing against the best athletes in the world.
4. Veteran members meet new members and both grow from coaching and working together.
Teams of 2 guys and 2 Girls with 1 Captain. The captain must have enough experience and or have competed in multiple competitions in order to lead a team.
Sign up on the board and fill out an athlete form to reserve a spot and you will then be placed on a team by Travis.
