Terms & Conditions –
Updated October 2020.
Please take the time to read through our terms and conditions
No Membership fee needed for the FIT X FEDERATION YEAR 1 – This will change after the first year to support costs and we will ALWAYS aim to give back to the Athletes – we are nothing without you!
It is the competing athletes’ responsibility to make themselves aware of all relevant competition rules & adhere to them.
Variations to classes, omissions to classes & additional classes are at the discretion of the promoter but must be approved by the head of FIT X and or Head Judges.
Athletes may compete in ONE or a maximum of TWO classes per show. Promoters may put on other classes outside of the qualifying classes such as local area competitions & these can be entered additionally.
Any age relative class will require the athlete to produce ID at registration if asked.
The minimum age to compete in the FIT X Federation is 16 years old.
FIT X show(s) will operate as run-through events. Athletes will go on stage, participate & then receive placings, trophies, invitations, etc.
No background music shall include swear words, blasphemy or promote violence or racial hatred. In any instances of this happening the music will be stopped.
The head judges has in exceptional cases the authority to remove or to not allow an athlete to step on stage if it is felt that the athlete has not reached a basic minimum standard required for a competitive athlete.
FIT X Final Invitations are awarded to athletes that the judges feel will be competitive at the yearly National Finals. First place in a qualifying event does not guarantee that the athlete will receive an automatic invitation to the Finals. ALL invitations are the responsibility of the head judges at the respective qualifying show(s).
An automatic Finals invitation is offered to any athlete who won their class in the previous year’s FIT X Final. For clarity, being a FIT X Final’s Class Winner is relevant for one season only.
