This article is a part of a series where we introduce you to the TFX team.
Over the last year our team has been diligently working to take our competition weekend to the next level.
We have elevated our competition staffing structure so that every stage includes additional assistant judges, our head judges and our competition Director of Judges. We have also added an internal Director of Medical, Dispute Judge, Event Testing and Event Oversight Lead, and a Scoring Director.
Say hello to your 2023 Head Competition Staff!
MEET YOUR 2023 HEAD COMPETITION STAFF
- Jess Powers: Director of Logistics
I am a former collegiate soccer player, I pretty much played my entire life. When I found CrossFit I fell in love! It filled my competitive desire and it was just a lot of fun. Since then I have competed at CrossFit Regionals and even joined a Pro Football League in Austin for a time. My first experience working TFX was as a judge in 2014 when the crazy ice storm took over Austin. I remember the organized chaos that went on behind the scenes to make everything run as smoothly as possible and I said to myself, “That is how I want to get my hands dirty.”
Since 2015 I have been leading logistics for TFX. From technical writing for all of the qualifier and competition events, running the leaderboard to heading up all scoring and disputes and answering every email that comes through. I’ve probably exchanged at least one email with every TFX athlete at one point or another. In total I’ve directed logistics and scoring for over 25 competitions, and I love it.
The number of athletes that look forward to TFX every year and train day in and day out to be able to push themselves as far as possible, makes all the late nights organizing TFX so so worth it!

I bring a wealth of knowledge and years of experience within CrossFit; both within the community and competitive atmospheres.
