“The Open” PSCF Intramural Competition

What is the Open?

The CrossFit Games Open is the world’s premier test of fitness. Since 2011, the five-week five-workout online competition has accurately ranked the fitness of thousands of competitors.

Held in CrossFit affiliates and garage gyms, the Open is designed to be accessible to all athletes while rigorous enough to challenge the world’s fittest. Fourteen-year-old high school freshmen compete in the Open, as well as their 77-year-old grandparents and everyone in between.

Sign up for $20, do the workouts, enter your scores, and you will be ranked in relation to your peers in your age division, competition region, state and country. 

Workouts are released online each Thursday and athletes have until the following Monday to submit their scores. 

It all starts February 25, 2016.

What is the PSCF Intramural Competition?

In order to build excitement and get our community involved during The Open, we will be dividing all those participating into 4 teams. Teams will be established by drawing names from a hat. Each team will be lead by a team captain. Our 2016 captains are Jan, Claudia, Ross, and Leigh-Ann. (Teams determined Feb. 15th)

Teams will need to choose a team name and are encouraged to show their spirit with t-shirts, noisemakers, cheers, etc. 

Teams will be rewarded weekly with the following point system:

  • 1 point for showing up (support during ‘main event’)

  • 1 point for each teammate who earns an official score on the workout. Can be Rx or Scaled 

  • 1 point per athlete that finishes in the top three in the gym. (Both Rx and Scaled divisions)

  • 5 points for the team with the best spirit.

All athletes will perform the week’s workout on Friday, during classes. The “Main Event” will be Friday evenings where we encourage all teams to show up, whether you intend on doing the WOD or not. This is essentially a party every Friday night, so BYOB!

Once the Open is completed, points will be added up and the winners will receive major bragging rights and other treats! 

This is intended to be a blast, so don’t hesitate, register NOW!
