WELCOME TO OPEN SEASON!
For our noobies out there, the CrossFit Open consists of 5 workouts spread across
5 weeks that aim to find the fittest people in the world. Last year over 429,000
people participated in the Open.
I know many of you will ask yourself, “Why should I do the Open? There’s no way
I’m the fittest in the world.” For 99.99% of us, that is true and that’s why we are
running the Intramural Open!
In the Intramural Open, you’ll have the ability to contribute to a team every single
week no matter your score. Go above and beyond in your spirit or performance and
you can contribute even more. Most importantly, it’ll be the highlight of fun and
community in our gym.
So what exactly is the Intramural Open?
It all starts with you registering for our Intramural Open via the link we will provide.
As registrations roll in, we will choose some of you awesome and fun folks to be
A few weeks before the Open begins, we will have our first amazing event…Draft
Night! This is where teams and athletes find their match. Now don’t worry about
being last pick – we have a fun way of doing it and it does not involve picking
someone last based on skill.
While the draft is awesome, the real fun begins post draft night…recruiting
season. You see each week during the Intramural Open, your team earns a point
for every person on the team that completes the workout and submits a
score. Which means…the bigger the team, the bigger the score.
So in the weeks between the draft and the first workout, your team actively recruits
other athletes at our gym that haven’t signed up. You can bribe, beg, or do what
you have to do to show them your team wants them the most!
Once teams are set and workouts begin, it’s quite simple. You earn a point for your
team by simply doing the workout and submitting your score. If you place top 3 in
your division for a workout, then you earn 3 more points. If your team brings the
most spirit in any given week then your team receives 5 extra points.
So, say you aren’t the best athlete in the gym. No big deal. Complete the workout
and bring tons of spirit and you might make the biggest point contribution in the
Folks, it’s totally normal to be a little nervous. But then again, you were all super
nervous the first time you walked through our doors and you know how well that
worked out. So make the leap, trust in us, and get ready for an amazing time!
