Listen closely my friends and you can hear the grunts and groans of CrossFit event preparation coming from event-organizer desks nationwide. You know the sound well because you know exactly how hard it is to coordinate a successful event, from athlete registration to T-shirt ordering to scheduling the Paleo food truck.
That’s why we created Fitsquid.com. Fitsquid automates event website creation, app creation, online registration, volunteer sign-up, exhibitor registration, check-in, reporting, management and scoring. Box owner, Fran Colombi of Crossfit Castle Rock, knows all about it. “This was our fourth year holding our competition and our first year using Fitsquid.com. All of our athletes registered online and the event was sold out well in advance,” she said “Everything we needed was in one place and our competitors loved the live scoring leaderboard. It made our lives much much easier.”
Fitsquid.com gives you organization and efficiency while providing your athletes with a superior experience from registration to check-in and beyond. Key features include:
Professional-Grade (Self-Serve) Website & App Creation
With no programming skills to speak of, you can create a dynamic and interactive listing that will bring more athletes, exhibitors and spectators to your event and keep your phone from ringing with questions.
Every listing lets users post photos and videos directly to the event listing or volunteer for jobs the host offers. Visitors can also view event schedules, awards, sponsors, special guests, registered athletes, exhibitors and more. Once your event listing is complete, the system creates a mobile web app for your event. You can post athlete bulletins (which can also be sent via text) and conduct live voting while athletes can easily find up-to-date information about your event. Once the event has passed, users can still access the listing for results and to share pictures and videos.
Online Registration and Sign Up
You can enable online registration for your event and accept payments that go directly into your organization’s account. With Fitsquid, you will get more pre-registered athletes than ever. Once an athlete registers for ANY event hosted on our system, it takes them barely 60 seconds to register for your event. We make it easy on athletes.
Once athletes register for your event, you can handle their entire account from a single dashboard.
Vendors can also purchase sponsorships and booths through Fitsquid while volunteers can sign up for the job categories you create.
Forget spreadsheets; endless sorting, ranking, printing, reprinting and posting.
Fitsquid allows you set each workout scoring type (reps, points, time) and enter scores as they come in.
Finding athletes is a breeze with a simple search. All of the ranks are done for you — by WOD, overall, by division. Change in an athlete’s score? No problem — make the revision and everything is recalculated in an instant.
All eyes will be glued to your professional leaderboard. Set up a screen, sit back and watch as athletes and spectators make it a focal point of the day.
Any box can sign up on Fitsquid.com and post their event free. If your registration fee is less than $50.00, the entire service is no charge! If your fee is greater than $50.00, Fitsquid charges a nominal per/athlete fee of up to $2.50, which can be passed along to the athlete in the form of a transaction fee, making the service free to the box. Fitsquid is also perfect for intra-box throwdowns, skills classes and seminars.
