Where Am I Going? – White Sands Park, Jervis Bay, NSW. Australia

Come Prepared – You’ll need to provide a valid ID to complete check-in.

No Refunds – we understand ‘life happens’ — but please be aware that if you cannot participate in the weekend’s events, we cannot offer a refund for any reason

COVID-19; We're in regular contact with the local council who are responsible for issuing the event permit. It's not currently clear what the situation will be for mass sporting events by November. Therefore, we have 'Plan B' dates penciled in for March 2021- if we have to use these, we will. In such a case, all registrations will be rolled forward to the new dates automatically.

Switching Divisions - you can switch between Advanced (Rx) and Intermediate (Scaled) for up to 1 week before the event kicks off

Trading Places – you can substitute an eligible athlete up until the respective day of competition!

Australia's Premier Functional Fitness Festival

GENERAL INFORMATION:

The awesome workouts will take place on the whitest beaches in the world, in the crystal clear waters of Jervis Bay and in the main arena

We provide all the equipment for the events i.e. you only need to bring whatever you will wear

We will have a warm-up area and recovery station complete with Kryo capsule and a range of other recovery devices

Alongside the main arena, we have a food village with loads of yummy, local options on offer!

We will also have a retail strip to keep everyone happy, plus we a jumping castle and face painting for the mini athletes.

Masters Athletes will automatically be identified & allocated based on the date of birth used for each registration i.e. there is no 'option' to select for Masters division - just register and, if you'll be 36+ years old on competition day, your date of birth will do the talking! 

One question that crops up from time to time is, "If I can't do a certain movement, can I still compete?". The answer is YES

But, naturally, to be eligible for scoring points on the Leaderboard you need to complete the workout as it is prescribed in your division - but if you're there to have fun and challenge yourself rather than shooting for a podium finish, we'll never stand in your way!

Just email support@thebaygames.com in the event you have any questions about this

So, what are you waiting for? Hit the Register button NOW and get amongst it!!
