Coastal Qualifier Team Challenge

In addition to serving as the qualifier for Fittest of the Coast, the Coastal Qualifier will also serve as a team competition – the Coastal Qualifier Team Challenge. Any gym with at least 10 participating athletes can take part in the Team Challenge.

Gyms will be divided into divisions based off the number of athletes registered. See below for divisions. Gyms must have at least 10 athletes in the Coastal Qualifier to participate.

Division 1 – Gyms with 10-20 athletes

Division 2 – Gyms with 21-40 athletes

Division 3 – Gyms with 41+ athletes

How it Works:
Each gym will designate a team captain. Each week, the team captain will submit a roster by the score submission Monday of that week’s workouts. Rosters must be submitted by 9pm. Team captains will submit rosters on http://www.fittestofthecoast.com.

Weekly Roster Sizes:
Each week, a team captain will fill out a roster with his team’s athletes. Roster sizes will vary based on division.

Division 1 Weekly Roster Size – 5 athletes

Division 2 Weekly Roster Size – 7 athletes

Division 3 Weekly Roster – 9 athletes

Roster Rules:
Division 1 Roster Rules – Athletes cannot be in the roster two weeks in a row. A different roster must be made each week.

Division 2 Roster Rules – Athletes cannot be in the roster two weeks in a row. An athlete can only appear in his team’s weekly roster up to two times over the five weeks. A different roster must be made each week.

Division 3 Roster Rules – Athletes can not be in the roster two weeks in a row. An athlete can only appear in his team’s weekly roster up to two times over the five weeks. A different roster must be made each week.

Scoring:
Scoring will be based on a weekly total on how that week’s roster performs. Scoring will be a reverse scoring order (the same as the Coastal Qualifier Leaderboard). A team’s weekly score will be the total points of the roster. The lower the points, the better.

At the end of the five week’s a team’s score will be the sum of all five weeks. Leaderboards will be posted each week with updates.

Weekly Score Example:
Athlete 1 – 5th place on workout in his division – 5 points
Athlete 2 – 25th place on workout in his division – 25 points
Athlete 3 – 56th place on workout in his division – 56 points
Athlete 4 – 11th place on workout in his division – 11 points
Athlete 5 – 1st place on workout in his division – 1 point

Total Points for Week – 98 points

Gym Initiative Program

The backbone of Fittest of the Coast and the Coastal Qualifier are the gyms who create excitement and opportunities for athletes.

As part of FOTC’s mission to support the local gym, Fittest of the Coast will give back 20% of the Coastal Qualifier registration fees back to the local gym.

At the conclusion of registration for the Coastal Qualifier, FOTC will tally the amount of athletes registered from each gym and give that percentage back in the form of a check. Gyms will be required to submit information via an online form to be eligible to receive a check.

Any unclaimed money will be given back to a non-profit/charity of FOTC’s choice.

This program further strengthens the FOTC mission to provide opportunities for gyms and be a benefit to the fitness community. In just two years, FOTC has generated more than $18,000 for the local fitness community and WILL continue to make this priority.
