The Heart of America Team Competition has grown from a small local team competition in Springfield, MO with 15 participating affiliates in 2009 to a full-blown regional event for athletes, CrossFit fans, and industry vendors alike. Our desire is for HOA to continue to be, first and foremost, a celebration of the strong community of CrossFitters and boxes from throughout the Midwest and beyond. Our mission is to provide the best possible experience for everyone involved. The WODs will always be well-thought out, well-formatted, and pre-tested. Our dedicated staff of judges and volunteers will be properly educated and briefed in an effort to deliver a fair and un-biased athlete and spectator experience. We will continue to strive for excellence in every aspect of this fun, family-friendly, community focused event!
