Welcome to the 3rd iteration of SportsFest.
Want to know what SportsFest is? Best show up to learn about it but if I had to answer with words, I’d say this. CrossFit 26 SportsFest is a St. Louis area co-ed sports league providing a way for local CrossFit athletes to compete against each other in something besides fitness.
Events this year include Kickball, Sand Volleyball, Ultimate Frisbee, Touch Rugby, Futbol (Soccer), Floor Hockey and the always Epic Mystery Finale. Yes, it’s epic bro! Check the schedule to see the full list of dates and events.
Socials occur sometimes during and definitely after each event.
Registration is open and the first event starts soon. Details about cost are available on the Sign Up page.
Date and Time: Saturday May 18th @ 12 pm.
Location: Forest Park (exact location soon)
Sport: Golden Ticket Kickball
What is kickball? Kickball is a popular playground sport and is typically played among young, school-age children and some elite CrossFitters. The lack of both specialized equipment and highly skill-based positions (like pitcher) makes the game an accessible introduction to other sports. I wouldn’t be surprised if the most elite CrossFit athlete strikes out because somehow in his skill based work he/she forgot to work on kicking, that’s right kicking…not kipping!
Watch the video below to see Rich Froning (CrossFit Games Champion) as a child attempting to kick a ball.
Why call it Golden Ticket? So many of you are asking and it’s just going to have to remain a mystery. #illnevertell
