CrossFit Games Open

Week 1 – Friday, Feb 22
Week 2 – Friday, March 1
Week 3 – Friday, March 8 – Friday Night Lights
Week 4 – Friday, March 15 – Friday Night Lights
Week 5 – Friday, March 22 – Friday Night Lights

The CrossFit Games is broken up into two stages. The first step is The Open, a worldwide online competition that kicks off in February. All CrossFitters at every level are encouraged to compete. It’s basically our annual test see where we stand. Most of us don’t worry too much about where we actually end up ranking but more about improving our ranking from previous years.

Should I Sign Up?

We don’t require anyone to register. If you want to use the CrossFit Games leaderboard to compare your performance from year to year than I suggest you sign up. If you just want to do the workouts and don’t want to register, that is great too!

You do NOT have to Sign Up for the Open to do the workouts, participate in Friday Night Lights, or the Intramural Challenge.

Friday Night Lights

Friday Night Lights gives us the opportunity to go in organized heats with judges, and feel the heat of competition.

This year we will have Friday Night Lights gatherings, each of the LAST THREE weeks. During each week, you can also complete the workouts in your regular Friday classes. Class times may be limited prior to Friday Night Lights events.

I know some may be disappointed that we aren’t doing every Friday, but we are doing this again in the Fall due to the schedule change for 2020. So technically we are doing more Friday Nights this year 🙂

The Intramural Team Challenge

Each year we have an intramural team competition to spice it up a bit. It’s for ALL LEVELS, from beginner to advanced! If you would like to participate, SIGN UP HERE for the draft (separate from Open registration)!

This year we will have four intramural teams competing within the gym. The coaches and Captains will determine the teams in a random but even manner.
