WHICH DIVISION SHOULD WE ENTER?

More than ever, with the large number of people taking part in Turf Games, we ask that you respect the divisions and enter the appropriate division to your teams level of functional fitness.  

EVERYDAY ATHLETE DIVISION

This is our ENTRY LEVEL division - for those who are new to fitness comps - maybe competed a handful of times, work out a few times a week.

If you are wanting to be on the TURF, have an epic day out with your friends, throw around a few high fives and enjoy the atmosphere - but ultimately have a FUN SOCIAL day - this division is for you.  At the end of the comp, you will learn about yourself as an athlete and be able to go away and sharpen your strengths and build on your weaknesses.

If you have a sport back ground and work in the fitness industry (PT/CF Coach, own a gym etc), you should and need to be entering the Intermediate (or Elite category).  Everyday teams should not have more than 1 PT/coach in their team.  if you are wanting to enter a team with your clients who also fit the Everyday athlete criteria (you must as well) this is acceptable - however you must not have multiple PT/coaches in your team

Everyday Athlete teams are permitted to have -

  • Maximum one athlete who has competed in an Intermediate Division at a Turf Games before.
  • No athlete who has competed in the Elite Division is permitted to compete in the Everyday Division
  • Maximum 2 athlete who have won an Everyday Category previously

Example of people who should enter the everyday category are -

  • First timers to fitness comps, or have only competed for 'fun' a few times
  • Those who train a few times a week
  • Those who work in office/non fitness jobs, enjoy teamwork and a rewarding challenge.

If you have questions about your team please do get in contact.  Teams on the day who have clearly entered the wrong division (everyday) and should be up a division may have points taken off them.

The winning Everyday teams will win some prizes from our partners 

INTERMEDIATE ATHLETE CATEGORY

Those athletes and teams who have competed in fitness comps before or come from a sport / fitness background.  Athletes are keen to test their metal in the Intermediate category and see if they can top the tables.  You've won or podiumed at a comp before in an Everyday or similar style level - it is now time to step up.

If you are a PT/CF Coach or have a seasoned sporting background - this category is for you.  Workouts will be very similar to the Elite category, the big difference will be the level of team you will be up against and the weight set on some movements. There will be small partner prizes for this category, no cash prize.

ELITE ATHLETE CATEGORY 

Athletes and teams who are the best of the best - there aren't any holes in your game! You want to vie for the top spot and be crowned the undisputed best team on the Turf at the 2023 Dublin City Series.  You will be in the running to win some big prizes including spots at our international Turf Games events.  You are on the TURF to really push yourself and want to go all in - just like the way you train!

Please respect the categories and ensure that your team enters the right category to make it a fair and fun competition for all.  Any eligibility questions or queries on which team you should enter, please email caroline@turfgames.com.
