The Games are finally here, and we can’t wait to watch the action in Madison, WI.
We get it. You also want to watch the Games. But you don’t want to be a slug the whole weekend.
We’ve taken the guesswork out of the equation for you and crafted this one-of-a-kind workout for your Games-viewing shenanigans. Grab some friends and your recovery beverage of choice and get to watching!
The Open is practically here and some at Throwdowns HQ are notorious head cases. We wrote up a few stay-sane rules for surviving the Open. If you are anything like us, maybe you will benefit from this list also.
1. You can only do what you can do. Do your best. Not *insert name of person you are competitive with’s* best. YOUR best.
2. If it hurts – actually hurts (you know your body), stop. Pain is not weakness leaving the body. It’s the body telling you to stop.
3. No redos. Do your very best and move on with your week.
4. Set a designated amount of time to whine, troll the leaderboard, and strategize; and don’t exceed it. Nonverbal whining still counts as whining, so choose your time wisely. We’ll be #leaderboarding with all our friends and frenemies on a custom Throwdowns.com leaderboard.
5. If your 1 rep is 150 pounds, you probably aren’t going to hit 165 for reps, or if it’s a movement you’re not proficient at or have never done successfully, you probably won’t do 15 in a row. Take a breath and review Rule #1.
6. You are probably not going to Regionals. Take a breath and review Rule #1.
**That said, if you are going to Regionals, shoot us a message – we’d love to help you get there with a fundraiser competition at a highly discounted rate.**
Throwdowns.com HQ had the pleasure of working with over 200 competitions all over the world in 2016 alone. Many of the events gave some or all of their proceeds to charity, and we pride ourselves on doing the same. We want to take this opportunity to spotlight one of the events in 2016 that tugged a little harder on our heartstrings.
Daniel from CrossFit QFE in Lumberton, NC reached out to us early last fall about putting on their first ever competition – an event to benefit a 5-year-old boy named Carson. Carson was a constant presence in the gym (whether coming along to class with mom, Jonna, or in CrossFit Kids classes), and was/is a true ray of sunshine. Jonna and her three boys – Austin, Jackson, and Carson – were all presences at the box for several years. In a small town like Lumberton, the QFE community is really more like a family. When Carson was diagnosed with TALL leukemia on September 6, 2016, the community was quickly abuzz with the news. They knew they needed to come together to help raise money and support for Carson and his family.
The event, titled “CrossFit for Carson,” was set for October 22 – only 2 weeks after Hurricane Matthew hit the Atlantic coast. It was the first Category 5 hurricane to hit the coast in almost a decade, and even though it had demoted its category by the time it hit Lumberton, the damage was catastrophic. Half of Lumberton was still underwater at the time of the event. They honestly weren’t sure that the competition would be a go until the 16th, when running water came back to the gym. It was no longer a safety hazard to hold the event, but the main road to Lumberton was still underwater. On October 20, just two days before the competition, Highway 95 reopened after being closed for several weeks due to flooding. Daniel described that feeling as “…a Hail Mary that we caught, because it enabled people from either side of Lumberton to get to town.” With just two days until the event, they decided it was a clear “Go!”
CrossFit for Carson itself couldn’t have gone any better. The timing was right, there were minimal glitches, and the turnout both for competitors and community support was incredible. People who knew Jonna and Carson from all walks of life pitched in – not just the CrossFit community. Daniel expressed so much gratitude for all who had a hand in making the day what it was under extreme circumstances.
The silver lining on an already amazing event was that two days before (the same day that the highway opened up), Carson’s bone marrow scans came back clear. He is still in for three years of treatments and the road is long, but this was a huge win for Team Carson.
The CrossFit QFE team rallied and was able to pull off a successful event despite huge obstacles, and we were honored to be a part of it.
If you’d like to donate to Carson’s care, please get in touch with the CrossFit QFE team here.
Based on some helpful feedback, we’ve condensed our ~3 Minute Product Tour video with narration into a quick ~48 second video that highlights some of our registration and scoring system’s key features.
Our goal at Throwdowns.com is to help box owners, coaches, and other CrossFit community leaders save time, increase impact, and build reputation with our fully integrated registration and scoring system.
Our mission at Throwdowns.com is to equip community leaders and coaches at CrossFit affiliates with powerful tools to save time, increase impact, and build reputation. Our comprehensive registration and scoring system carefully considers the needs of everyone involved and provides a seamless and well-integrated solution. Whether it’s the event staff (organizers, judges, volunteers, sponsors), the athletes, or the spectators, we’ve got them covered.
Event organizers can get up and running with our turn-key registration system in minutes to create a professional landing page that communicates a clear call to action for athletes to register and submit payment, resulting in funds being available for organizers as early as one week from when registration commences. Although the default registration template is adequate for most needs, it can trivially be customized to capture custom data fields, additional donations and gratuities supporting a charity component, or even the sale of limited quantities of pre-paid merchandise such as t-shirts, meals at the event venue, etc.
Here’s a view of a sample registration form featuring some of these bells and whistles from Heroes for Haiti, an online virtual competition supporting children in Haiti that we’re proud to sponsor again this year. This registration form is functional, elegant, and works just as well on a phone as it does a desktop computer.
Sample registration form with opt-in for purchase of additional “merchandise” at checkout. (Click to view full size image in a new browser window.)
The estimated burden to signup for a competition with our registration system is 90 seconds or less, and we’ve carefully designed it to work on a variety of mobile devices so that event participants will register early and help spread the word. It can even be used for special no-fee staff positions (judges, volunteers, etc.), for collecting funds from sponsors, or even for registering spectators if there is limited crowd capacity available due to fire codes or other constraints.
Using one best in class registration system for everyone maximizes the amount of time saved so that it can be spent on more valuable efforts that will inevitably increase the impact of the event and build valuable brand equity for your box.

As a new competition series, Legion of Beasts had our inaugural event this last September in Scottsdale Arizona. We hired Throwdowns to manage our qualifier and flew Kate out to run scoring for the three day event. With close to 200 competing athletes over three days we had some pretty big snags considering this was our first event. Kate kept everyone together and helped the judges maintain consistency over the three days. Always level headed and professional. What a great company and service for this industry...thank you Kate for hanging in there with us!read more
Throwdowns and Kate have been awesome to work with. We are somewhat unique in that our company does not own a gym, we run multiple different events a year at multiple locations. Over the last four years we have worked with 3 different event management platforms. Some better than others (some FAR worse). To date we have run over 100 events, with the last 20 or so being through Throwdowns. I can say that they level of customer service provided has leaps and bounds surpassed my expectations. While (in my opinion) there is no such thing as "perfect" software, the level of service makes working with Throwdowns a no brainer in my book. We have renewed our contract for another 28 events for 2018 and are looking forward for all that is coming from Throwdowns that will help our events become better for our athletes!read more
Man, this is scoring, streamlined. We've run multiple competitions in the past and this made life SO much easier for the people running our scoring table! The results were ready less than 5 minutes after the final heat on Day 2, the leaderboard is live for the athletes to check, and the support from Kate and the team at Throwdowns was fantastic. I'd love to see some features added like an option for doing Oly/Powerlifting meets etc, but those would just be the cherry on top. Thanks for a great product!read more
We used Throwdowns for our competition in early December and had nothing but a positive experience. From getting our registration up and running to logging scores and updating leaderboards on the day of the event, Throwdowns was extremely user-friendly and turnkey. We were also supported every step of the way by Kate, who could not have been easier or more pleasant to work with. I see no reason why we would not continue to use Throwdowns again in the future, and I would recommend them to any CrossFit affiliate looking for a registration and scoring vendor.read more
I run a national non-profit, and we do Crossfit Competitions all over the US. Throwdowns has been instrumental in our success leading up to and on event day. It's user friendly, sleekly designed, and works very intuitively. Also, being Google Sheets based is huge, as I can modify the scoring from any internet ready device. If you need a registration and scoring platform, look no further!read more
Throwdowns was simply amazing!! Kate was there for us through every step of our competition. She was available to us throughout the day of our competition and she also made sure we were set up for success prior to our competition. Because of Throwdowns scoring for our comp was truly easy and the leaderboard was continuously up to date. We were able to reveal the winners less than two minutes after completion of the final wod! Thank you Kate and throwdowns. We'll definitely be back for our next comp!!read more

Without a doubt, the easiest to use & most cost effective scoring system we have used. With 14 throwdowns under our belt over the bast 4 years, I cannot see our team using anything else. Alan Fitzpatrick, director of the Celtic Seriesread more
This weekend I hosted my first Benefit workout involving the community to raise money for my new middle school weight room! My experience with Throwdowns was incredible. They answered all of my questions in a timely manner, were very clear on directions and explaining how the website/web design worked. With this being a benefit WOD and not a competition, they gave me
options on the webpage, as well as, adjusted the webpage for athlete who signed up and donators only! I will never use anyone else after my time with them! Side note, they are just good people!read more
Kate and throwdowns is amazing. The best part is they are always there to help. The months leading up and the day of Kate was very prompt with getting back to our questions. If you need help with a competition and want everything in the same place, this is where you need to go!read more

We hosted our 2nd Hwy 55 Throwdown in May of 2017. This was our second time using Throwdowns as our registration and scoring system. Once again their system was flawless. It makes keeping score and updating the leaderboard a breeze. Also, the registration system is easy to customize and to monitor, taking much of the hassle out of hosting a competition. Best of all, their prices are reasonable and they don't charge an arm and a leg for their services. We'll definitely be using them again.read more
We hosted our 5th competition this past weekend and it was the first time using Throwdowns. We used them for scoring only and everything went off without a hitch. The back-end is very easy to use and the scoring website looked great! Kate was excellent to work with and answered all my questions in a timely manner. She was even available late in the day on competition day to answer my call. I will be using them again!read more
Kate (and throwdowns) was amazing to work with this past year for Row for a Reason! She even came day of to the event to help us problem solve any last minute items! We loved working with them and can't wait to utilize them in the futureread more

This is my second time using Throwdowns. I am happy to report that it was a success and even easier than the first time. Once the information is put in place it becomes a simple data entry project for your scorekeeper which makes things so easy in terms of the flow for a large event.
We will certainly use this scoring system for our future events.
Thank you Throwdowns!read more
We hosted our third annual local competition (Swolemates) in Bendigo, Victoria, Australia at Crossfit By Design. We decided to use Throwdowns for the leaderboard and registration platform and we were absolutely thrilled with how the solution performed. It was super easy on the day and the setup process with simple and pain-free. Kate was very easy to deal with and gave us clear guidance on how to operate and execute the system. Because of their support, we were able to raise over $500 for a local charity and I would highly recommend using Throwdowns for your next comp!read more
Customer service is top notch! Kate is just amazing. Throwdowns really brings the stress of a big event down purely because of how smoothly they run. We worked with Throwdowns for the inaugural Railyard Games, we recently used their software for our second year, and we will continue to work with them for future Railyard Games events!read more
After using podcast for 2 previous years I decided throwdowns would be a better option for this year's Battle of Britain throwdown and I was right. After been put through to Kate my life was instantly easier! Every little worry I had she sorted and having her available on stand by on the day of the throwdown was invaluable. All for an amazing price as well. I would highly recommend.read more

Their system is easy to use and updates quickly. Thank you for helping to make Sweat Fest V a huge success!read more
We just recently used Throwdowns for our annual Bros at the Bar charity event. Awesome and easy to use software. Customer service is great!! We had issues on a Saturday morning (our fault not the softwares) and one phone call at 8 am and we were back up and running. A company that is willing to help early on a Saturday morning is a company I will use for all our competitions!!read more
We offered an event and Kate was timely and friendly with all of our dealings. Unfortunately our competition was canceled, through no fault of Throwdowns, and all of the athletes were refunded immediately. I have no complaints whatsoever and I hope to use the scoring portion of the site at a later date. I don't think you can go wrong.read more
We ran a competition this a December and we could not be more pleased with our decision to use these guys. The competition ran perfectly and our athletes loved the leaderboard. We are doing a second competition later this year and can't wait to work with Throwdowns again. Trevor-Yellowstone Crossfitread more
This was my third time using Throwdowns for our annual competition and every year I am blown away with the software and more importantly their customer service. As we came closer to our competition date I was on the phone or email daily asking for tweaks or testing scoreboards to make sure everything was dialed in and Kate was always there for us and willing to help at lightning speed! Great company that I will always go back to for our competitions!read more
Sabah Functional Athletics Society organised Borneo Pangazou Tournament in May 2017 and we decided to use Throwdowns to facilitate qualifiers and actual tournament registration. BEST. MONEY. SPENT! Kate was so helpful with troubleshoots despite being at the other side of the globe, and the Leaderboard Platform was easy to manage by the administrator and easily understood by the athletes as well. We totally recommend Throwdowns to anyone aspiring to run a smooth competition. WELL DONE Throwdowns and THANKS Kate! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐read more
An absolute pleasure to work with. Kate was very responsive prior to, during, and after our online event. The user interface was so simple for users and for me as the event administrator. Payment from the registrations was prompt. Will definitely use these guys again and highly recommend - professional and friendly, 5-star service!read more
I got in contact with Kate after realising that we needed a robust, data entry friendly system for our upcoming competition. I had noted that Torian Pro another large scaled competition here in Australia had used it, therefore I decided to look a little deeper into it. Once I had contacted Throwdowns, Kate was on the ball from the get go. She explained to me everything I needed to know, she emailed back any query I had as quickly as possible and helped with all of the heats, scorecards which made the input of data after every heat effortless and so efficient. Our spectators and athletes even commended us on how quickly everything was being uploaded, and we finished the competition without a single glitch, which is qhat you want especially in a large scale competition.
I will always be using Throwdowns from now on, and will be recommending Kate and the team to everyone locally here in WA if they are hosting a competition! This is without doubt the best online system that I have used and give it 6 out of 5 stars :)read more
I'm a coach at Limitless Performance Crossfit in Barbados and we hosted our first in-house throwdown last weekend. We used Throwdowns and it was fantastic! The correspondence from the initial reach out to the end of the competition was very quick and effective and the software itself is extremely user friendly. There was no request made on my part that Kate from Throwdowns didn't fulfill in a very timely manner. She was even available on the day of the throwdown and quickly helped me rectify a small problem I had encountered. The members were kept update throughout the day with the live updates of the leaderboard and it was so easy to arrange heats and do final tallies for events. I would definitely recommend Throwdowns to any box looking to host a competition. Thank you guys! Special love and thanks to Kate!read more
I loved working with Throwdowns. I did a Google search to find a scoring company for an In House Throwdown at my box, CrossFit Synergistics in Ashland, MA. I reached out to Throwdowns and was so impressed right from the start. The customer service is fantastic and the system is so incredibly user friendly. I will use them for every event we host!read more
These guys really know how to take care of you, your event, and your participants! We at CrossFit Pintados were the first ones in the Philippines to use Throwdowns for our Rookie Pintados Games this year and we won't look back.

You won't regret it!read more
We just put on @WWG, an all adaptive competition. We were behind schedule when we contacted Throwdowns and they made the process easy for us. The event went off without a hitch and accommodated a variety of needs for us.read more
I cannot say enough good things about Throwdowns scoring system. We hosted our CrossFit Kids competition last year and scoring was a nightmare. I spent the entire day sitting in a chair stressed out. This year, I experienced our event way differently. I was able to spend minutes after each Heat entering scores, and the rest of the time I watched athletes compete and visited with the athletes and their families. Throwdowns system is so easy to use and the spectators LOVED their LIVE scoring system. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Throwdowns for any competition!!read more
My box, CrossFit BodyInMotion in Shanghai, hosted the first ever China Championship last weekend. Though CrossFit is so new to China, it's growing at such a rapid rate and it was imperative that the first large scale CrossFit competition went perfectly. This event was sponsored by Reebok, Compex, Trigger Point, Rehband, amongst other companies, and we really needed to be sure everything went smoothly. Working with Throwdowns made the scoring aspect (one of the most important parts of a competition) so incredibly hassle-free, it was amazing to not have to worry about it the entire weekend. I will absolutely use them for our next competition- big or small, and next time not just for scoring but registration and merchandise sales as well. In addition to a great product, their customer service is top rate. Thanks for helping us put on an awesome event!!read more
Kate was so helpful and this program is one of the best out there!! It's very easy to use and the website worked like a champ! Anytime I had questions, they were there to assist me. Throwdowns understands customer service and its refreshing to see that there are companies out there that still hold it to a high standard!read more
Easy to use software. Kate was super helpful and responsive to questions. Entering scores is straightforward and all the teams appreciated the live leaderboard. If you're trying to run a legit comp. you need to use this!read more
After our event was over, I couldn't wait to email Throwdowns and let them know that their score keeping software was fantastic. It's not just the software that makes this company special,though. Their communication and support is outstanding. Anytime I had a question, I could call or email.read more
Throwdowns is awesome! The throwdowns staff was very friendly and helpful! They not only respond quickly to any of your questions but they also reach out to make sure you need anything!

If you plan to host a competition Throwdowns must be you first step in planning out your event!read more
I absolutely loved working with Throwdowns. The entire system was super user friendly. The leaderboard is the most professional I have ever seen and there was always instant support, especially during our event when it was crucial. Kate gave us her cell phone number and was always available to help.
We will definitely be using Throwdowns for all future competitions!read more
Iron Tribe Fitness just used Throwdowns for our Tribal Wars competition, and I can honestly say that our event was a huge success largely due to Throwdowns. The scoring system was super efficient and helpful! It took so much pressure off
of our team, as we have previously had to handle that job. We are so very thankful for Throwdowns coming out and handling that portion of our event with excellence. Y'all rock!read more
Being the host of the longest annual running CrossFit competiton in the middle TN area (the CrossFit Rampage Christmas Throwdown, since 2011) we needed a scoring system that keeps us professional. Throwdowns(dot)com has just that. We've used them for multiple years and for other competitions as well. They even provided us with the ability for people to submit "scaled scores" which rank accordingly to the rest of the competitors Rx'd scores. Great customer service. Easy set up. User friendly. We'll never "manually score" an event again!read more
I`ve used throwdowns for my first competiton. It made the whole experience of hosting an event a lot more easier. The costumer service is great and I got quick response to my questions. Price was important and Throwdowns was had the best price I could find and had all the things I needed. I will without a doubt use Throwdowns for my next competiton!read more
Throwdowns is awesome! Setting up my site was super easy with the instructions they give. Their leaderboard is easy to use and updates really fast. Used them for the first time this past weekend and I have no complaints. They reached out to me a few days prior to the event letting me know they were there for me if needed which was very nice of them. They also reached out afterwards to see how everything went, even commented about my leaderboard! Crazy they were there watching to make sure everything ran smooth. All in all, Throwdowns gets 5 stars!read more
These people are an awesome team! The software is easy to work with, and our competitors were impressed with the leaderboard. They had some of the best customer service we have ever received, and there was always someone to answer questions before the event and, most importantly, day of. Highly recommended!read more
I've organized and hosted many competitions, but just recently used Throwdowns for the first time. It solved so many previous frustrations and problems with past competition software i had used. You are in complete control of how you'd like to format, score, adjust and run things. Adjustments to anything can be made in real time and seen for the athlete just moments later. Without a doubt, the most impressive and main reason i will continue to use Throwdowns in the future, is the impeccable customer service. Never were they out of reach or slow to respond. They recognized the pressure and stress that sometimes can occur with running a larger event, and made sure they were available no matter the issue or time. They constantly sought and listened to any advice or recommendations i had, for ways in which they could improve their already great service and product. That speaks volumes.read more
Just used Throwdowns for out first large competition. I was very pleased at how easy it was to operate. What made it even better is they were available within minutes of needing and help. This put me at ease while under pressure. Thank you for making it so easy.read more
Just used Throwdowns for our first ever competition. I had researched several companies to handle the registration and scoring and Throwdowns looked solid but more importantly they had the best customer service and reached out to answer all my questions very rapidly once I indicated interest. After I decided to go with them the support continued and they were super prompt in helping me get everything set up and sorting out any issues/questions that I needed to get resolved. On the day of the event the scoring system and leaderboard worked like a charm and the athletes competing really enjoyed being able to pull up the leaderboard and check it on their phones. Definitely will be using Thowdowns again for our next event.read more
We used Throwdowns . com for one of our major events this year (Duke City CrossFit Presents: The Dispute). Absolute BEST customer service! Matthew was amazing to work with before, during and after our event. If I ever had a question or feedback to give, I had a response within hours if not minutes of pressing the send button. Knowing he was "on-call" during our event was also extremely comforting. The "how to" documentation and videos were extremely helpful throughout the process. The method of inputting data was very simple and straight-forward and the quick turnaround for uploaded content (scores) was very much appreciated by our athletes at the event. We will be using it for our next major event (Duke City CrossFit Presents: The Conquest) and highly recommend it to others.read more
We used Throwdowns for a benefit competition, Tuff Love, with around 100 athletes and 6 divisions. I cannot say enough good things about this company and its services. Front to back Throwdowns is amazing! They can streamline your registration, organization of teams/WODs, and most importantly allow you to score easily and quickly. Athletes can check scores online on a real time professional leaderboard. Throwdowns definitely added credibility to our event and was integral in making it a huge success. Also, Matthew provided excellent customer service and even event day support with questions that came up. Finally, it's veteran owned and made in the USA. Thank you again for exceeding our expectations!read more
Throwdowns provided us with an absolutely perfect service for both our Online Qualifier and the Main Event for Fittest in Cape Town 2016.
They didn't only provide an excellent leaderboard, perfect service and great understanding to our special needs but were also always available for support whenever we needed it.
We can't wait to use these guys again as they contributed strongly to the success of our event!read more
We used Throwdowns for our recent fund raiser "Island Throwdown 3.0" - The platform and support was awesome. We asked for a special feature that allowed our coaches to get a preferred rate, using coupons. Within a few days, matt had created and provided us with the tools we needed to make it happen.
If you are planning to run a comp, don't hesitate to use Throwdowns dot comread more
We used throwdowns for our Online qualifiers which went on for about 3 weeks, and the big throwdown in January 2016. We loved how easy the system is, and the backend is simply genius! We have a big time difference but throwdowns was always there to get back to us as soon as possible with suggestions, so truly, incredibly accommodating to all our needs. Internet isn't the fastest in Asia, and we particularly like how quick it takes to load the scoreboards.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!read more
We have used Throwdowns for our online competition that serves as a benefit for a project in Haiti that my wife and I are involved with. Matt and all the crew at Throwdowns bent over backwards to accommodate us. Their support was great and they are just a great group of people to work with in general. Their recent changes in their web management makes it so easy to make edits and changes on the fly and gives the user more freedom to make changes that would have previously required emailing back and forth to get a problem resolve. In addition, they handle all the registrations and money transactions so that takes that headache out of the organizers hands. I can't recommend Throwdowns enough for any event/scoring need! They are awesome!read more
This past January I ran the second Masters of the Universe competition at my gym. This year we had 90 teams of 2 more than doubling the event from the prior year. I have hosted Festivus Games where the scoring system dropped and it was a nightmare. This was my first time using Throwdowns and the system was rock solid. Matthew was responsive to any questions, we were paid in a timely manner as registrations came in and the system was executed exactly as promised.
I am looking at hosting another event this summer and would definitely use Throwdowns again and would not hesitate recommending them to anyone hosting an event!read more
Loved working with the Throwdowns Team for our last competition! Easy to use, responsive & professional! Would recommend them to anyone & will most definitely be using them for all future competitions at CrossFit Active. Cheers!read more
