The CrossFit Open is a worldwide CrossFit competition. We do it every year. It’s fun. We always enjoy Friday Night Lights – cheering each other on through the blood, sweat and sometime tears of the crazy workouts that are announced. This year, we are taking that same spirit of the Open and adding a team competition twist!!
Throughout this year’s Open, we will have four intramural teams competing against each other. And you’re going to be on one of those teams! (Don’t shake your head… yes you are!)
Jacked in the Box – Captains Maggie Dean & Katie Scott
GYM CLASS HEROES – Captains Bryan White & Caitlin Rolens
Team #3 (Name TBA) – Captains Vickie Beggs & Matt Kreider
Team #4 (Name TBA but likely something involving tacos) – Javier Tello & Denise Fierros
Yep, we chose a FUN bunch of folks to Captain – from all different class times! Prepare to have a good time throughout the Open this year!
Registration for the Open can be done at games.crossfit.com and choose CrossFit 1420 as your Affiliate.
Any 1420 athletes who are registered for the Open before this Saturday, February 4 will be “drafted” onto a team. After the draft, you might be recruited, bribed (with tacos probably) and courted by one of the Team Captains to join their team – probably by more than one! You pick where you want to go, who you want to compete with or against!
Ok, so this all sounds like fun and games but how does a team win?
+1 Point – Attendance: every member of a team that completes an Open workout at 1420 each week earns one point. Maximum one point per athlete per workout. This goes for Rx AND Scaled competitors!
+1 Point – Top 3: every male AND female member who places among the Top 3 at 1420 for each workout (Rx only) gets an extra point for their team.
+5 Points (team) – Spirit: The team with the most noise, pride, and PRESENCE each week will receive 5 bonus points.
We’ll have some random draws each week for prizes that could include gear, supplements, goodies from the 1420 Pro Shop. The top team will also earn a GRAND prize. Details released soon!
The point of all of this is simply to have FUN.
Register online at the CrossFit Games site, and let’s get this party started! The Open officially begins February 23rd.
