Introducing the Rookie of the Year Award: Celebrating Newcomers at the Okanagan Valley Throwdown 2024

Are you ready to embark on an exhilarating journey into the world of functional fitness and CrossFit? Well, get excited because we have some fantastic news to share with you! At this year's Okanagan Valley Throwdown 2024, we are thrilled to introduce a brand-new award: the Rookie of the Year!

What exactly is the Rookie of the Year award, you ask? Allow us to explain. This award is dedicated to celebrating and recognizing the top newcomer at the Okanagan Valley Throwdown. A "rookie" is defined as someone who is competing in their first-ever functional fitness/CrossFit competition as an individual, not just at our event, but ever!

We believe that stepping outside of your comfort zone and challenging yourself to try something new is incredibly courageous and commendable. That's why we want to shine a spotlight on those brave individuals who are taking their first steps into the world of competitive fitness.

But how will the winner of the Rookie of the Year award be determined? It's not just about who finishes first or lifts the most weight (although those things certainly do factor in). Our judges will be looking at a combination of factors, including performance in each event, overall effort, sportsmanship, attitude, and more.

Our esteemed panel of judges, comprised of our Head Judge, Competition Director, and Organizer, will carefully assess each rookie's performance and determine who deserves to be crowned the Rookie of the Year. It's about more than just physical prowess; it's about embodying the spirit of competition, camaraderie, and growth.

The Rookie of the Year award is your chance to make your mark and be celebrated for your bravery and dedication.

Join us at the Okanagan Valley Throwdown 2024 and witness the excitement firsthand as newcomers take center stage and compete for the coveted Rookie of the Year title. It's going to be an unforgettable weekend filled with thrills, cheers, and inspiring moments.

We can't wait to see who will emerge as the Rookie of the Year and kickstart their competitive fitness journey with a bang! Let the countdown to the Okanagan Valley Throwdown begin!
