CrossFit competitions test participants by challenging them to outperform their rivals across a series of specially selected exercises and activities.

Events such as SandClash are an integral part of the SFA’s mission to raise awareness of health and wellbeing across the Kingdom, and increase participation in sporting activity. The Federation is mandated by Vision 2030’s Quality of Life program to increase the ratio of people in the Kingdom exercising at least once a week to 40% by 2030.
