The 2024 Teenage CrossFit Games will be hosted by the Pit Teen Throwdowns. Since the announcement of the age group and adaptive divisions being spun off to outside organizers, we have been waiting to hear the details for each of the competitions.
Earlier today, the organizers of the Pit Teen Throwdown shared some developments on when the Teenage CrossFit Games will be along with a couple other non-Games competitions that will be held that week.
When and Where
The Teenage CrossFit Games will be at The Pit in Three Rivers, Michigan. This is where the Pit Teen Throwdown has been previously hosted and it will be back in 2024.
As for the date, what we know is the dates are “penciled in for shortly after the individual CrossFit Games”. The elite individual and teams compete August 8-11 in Ft. Worth, Texas. (side note: the Adaptive CrossFit Games will be in San Antonio, Texas, from September 19-22, 2024).
Divisions / Who is Competing?
The Teenage CrossFit Games will host the top 30 teenage boys and girls from both divisions, 14-15 and 16-17. These athletes will qualify for the Teenage CrossFit Games by advancing through the normal CrossFit Games season structure – Open, Quarterfinals, Semifinals and then the Games.
There are two additional competitions that will be hosted the day before the start of the Teenage CrossFit Games – the Pit Collegiate Throwdown and the Pit Teen Throwdown.
