In the preliminary round of competition, athletes will compete against other athletes from their continent during a 2 hour live but virtual competition featuring 6 tests. Athletes will participate in the competition from their own gyms, but be logged into an online streaming platform during their designated time slot in order to see their competitors and take them on head to head.

The top three athletes and teams from each continental preliminary session will move on to the final round of competition which will take place the following weekend. The format of the final round will mimic the preliminary round, but with 6 new tests. The final will be “new life” meaning all scores will reset going into the final. Additional details about the Continental Cup will be released in the coming months

Individual Intercontinental Champions (aka the first place individual male and individual female winner) will earn a spot to the 2021 iF3 World Championships held here in QLD, Australia!All participants must be a member of the AFFF.
