About Event
The California Affiliate Showcase brings together gyms from all over the United States to challenge themselves 
and see which gym will leave with the championship. Over $5,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded to the RX
division!

4 Person Team (2 Males and 2 Females)

Your team must select which they choose to compete. There are Saturday and Sunday slots available. The
Sunday crew will perform the same events in the same order as the Saturday crew. As an athlete you registration
grants you access for the full weekend.


There will be 2 divisions available based on skill and fitness level: Scaled or Advanced

Scaled Division
This division is able to perform all basic bodyweight movements unassisted. They are able to perform all
movements with full range of motion at high intensity. This division will sometimes have scaled weight or reps
in relation to the advanced division. You should have at least 6-8 months of training and have developed the
basic skills required to train at a high intensity. If you have to scale weight for your gym's workout this you
should probably be in this division.

Advanced Division
This division is able to perform the higher skill level gymnastic movements and heavier (traditional rx weights) than
the scaled division. If you are able to rx 90% workouts at the gym and you have been training for over 18 months
then this is probably the division for you.
