Do I have to film my workout?

Any athletes attempting to earn a spot to compete in Miami MUST submit the required videos. Workout videos will be due at the conclusion of the Online Challenge. 

All competing and eligible athletes will be notified as to which videos to submit at the designated time. This also applies to athletes attempting to register for WZA Miami through Open Registration.

Which age group do I register for?

The cut-off date for those looking to register in one of our age group divisions (masters or teenagers) is January 1, 2023. Whatever age you will be on that date is the division that you register in for the WZAOC!  

Do teams have to train together?

Nope! Teammates do not have to be in the same gym or even the same country in order to participate. Workouts do not have to be completed at the same time. 

Can we sub a teammate DURING the WZAOC?

If a teammate you registered initially with cannot complete all the WZAOC workouts, there is still a chance to qualify. Team Captains can replace teammates at any point during the WZAOC via Competition Corner. Any athlete who substituted midway through the Team Challenge must complete ALL the team workouts before the score submission deadline. No team substitutions or score submissions may be made after score submission closes.  

Can we sub a teammate AFTER the WZAOC ends?

Once a team is registered for WZA Miami, they are eligible to substitute one athlete for a valid extenuating circumstance for a one-time fee of $100 USD. Only ONE (1) athlete per team of three may be substituted. Once your one substitution has been made, your team is unable to make any further substitutions. The deadline to substitute an athlete for WZA Miami 2023 is Monday, December 12th, 2022, at 11:59 PM ET. All substitution inquiries must be made via email via [email protected] before this time. 

Note: The substituted athlete did not have to complete the Online Qualifier.  

How does Open Registration work?

On a pre-identified date, registration for specific divisions will open to all eligible athletes who completed the WZAOC in its entirety (including video submission). Athletes are invited to race against other eligible athletes to sign up and secure their spot to compete at WZA Miami.
