The first step in the affiliation process is to fill out an application and write an essay. The essay should contain info about your background, what CrossFit affiliation means to you, why you want it, and what you want to achieve. It doesn't have to be long or formal, but it should be from the heart.
The other informal step is to educate yourself and become a part of the community. This can happen in many ways. Do the workouts and post your results to the WOD comments, join the Message Board, subscribe to and read the CrossFit Journal, come to a seminar, and make friends with and visit other affiliates.
U.S. affiliates will be required to submit proof of insurance. Insurance can be purchased from a variety of companies. CrossFit HQ, however, does offer something called the CrossFit Risk Retention Group that we think offers the best insurance for CrossFit affiliates. It is an insurance group formed and run by CrossFit affiliates. You can read more about the RRG here: www.crossfitrrg.com. Please see the Insurance section for more detailed information.
You are required to send us a certificate of insurance (COI) with the following information:
Comprehensive general liability of $1,000,000 per occurrence/$2,000,000 aggregate
Professional liability coverage of $1,000,000.00
Please list the following as named insureds on your policy: your corporate entity, your name and your CrossFit DBA (if applicable).
You must list CrossFit Inc. as an additional insured (certificate holder). The address for CrossFit Inc. as additional insured is:
3218 Lakeside Village
Prescott, AZ 86301-7647
In the box labeled "Description of Operations/Locations … " you must have the following:
- Must include your physical gym address
