At some point, almost every CrossFit box throws a competition. Some host huge competitions several times each year.
For these facilities, investing in the right competition management software keeps everything organized on schedule and running smoothly.
So what are the key things CrossFit gyms should look for in a competition software? Here are five of the most helpful features an event software should include:
Great CrossFit event software needs to offer more than event registration. A good program will allow planners to develop their event from start to finish to ensure it goes without a hitch. It should do more than getting people signed up. The best competition software should help you run the entire showdown.
Of course, on some level the right competition software should be able to keep track of ticketing and payment processing. If you are planning on charging entrance fees for one of your CrossFit competitions, a software that can collect money and process payments electronically will be essential. This can also include possible tickets for observers and caps for registration based on the size of your event.
Like in any gym, visiting competitors will need to sign a release waiver to participate. A good event software will allow participants to sign these waivers digitally and then store them for convenient retrieval.
Gone are the days of having participants sign waivers by hand, and gone are the days of having to keep track of them in a file folder that too easily could get lost. Today, the computer can just keep track of everything for you in one convenient location.
Scoring during the event is equally important. Real-time scoring not only is easier for the record-keepers, but more convenient for the competitors who are able to see their scores and standings almost instantaneously. Nobody likes waiting to see the results of an event, and a great software makes sure that wait doesn’t happen.
Last but not least, a good event management software should be reasonably affordable. Considering the number of free CrossFit competitions that occur, not every gym can afford to spend a lot of money of software, so finding one that is affordable can be paramount in making a final decision.
